Christian: ‘Feed them to the lions’

5 May, 2014
Rep. Mike Christian

Rep. Mike Christian (R) Oklahoma challenges the Supreme Court ruling staying executions following the Crockett debacle and calls for the state justices’ impeachment citing overreach. Not convinced by arguments of cruel and unusual punishment Christian contends that victims’ torment requires executions to proceed regardless of suffering inflicted on the condemned, he says:

I really don’t care if it’s by lethal injection, by the electric chair, firing squad, hanging, the guillotine or being fed to the lions.
