"The public is getting a graphic look, up close and personal, of what it means to have a death penalty and use it in the United States," says Diann Rust-Tierney, Executive Director of NCADP, in a recent interview for All Things Considered. Rust-Tierney shares her thoughts on the botched execution of Clayton Lockett in Oklahoma, and what it means for the movement to abolish the dealth penalty, as well as the nation.
"This is what happens when the governments acts in secrecy, and without accountability. And I think what will happen is that this will really propel this issue into the forefront of the national debate of who we are as a people."
