Re "Files detail chaotic execution" (Page A7, May 2): Sorry, no sympathy here for the technically botched execution of Clayton Lockett. Any suffering he experienced was incredibly minimal compared to the six hour ordeal of his 19 year old victim. Fifteen years ago, Lockett and two cohorts kidnapped, beat and repeatedly raped, then shot her in the head with a shotgun. Not having succeeded in killing her, they then buried her alive as she struggled to breathe. Sorry, but can't find one bit of sympathy.
