  1. Michael Schraa:

    It was a black cloud hanging over the (Department of Corrections) for a long time, when we visited the (youth prison) two years ago, that was one of the things they said, they felt like they were walking on eggshells. They didnt know when the hammer was going to fall. Now that it is concluded and theres no indication excessive force was used, I think the anxiety level for the (guards) will go down. That makes a better environment.

  2. Judge Carlos A. Samour Jr.:

    Either way you look at it, the defendant is going to die in the custody of a department of corrections, death is certain, the only question is when.

  3. Robert Dunham:

    Lest there be any doubt, we hold that our state constitutions prohibition on cruel and unusual punishment, article I, section 17,5 does not require a unanimous jury recommendation or any jury recommendation before a death sentence can be imposed, the court said. That ruling has placed the fate of those death row inmates navigating the resentencing process into the realm of uncertainty. There is a growing fear among experts that some of those death row inmates will have their death penalties reinstated. An execution chamber used in Florida. (Florida Department of Corrections) The question here now is going to be, What about the people that have already been told they are entitled to a resentencing hearing? can you take that away from them? Can you retroactively pull the rug out and reinsert the death penalty? Brunvand toldFox News that a motion has already been filed to reinstate the death penalty for his client. He thinks thats an injustice. I cannot imagine having been sentenced to death, having received word from the Supreme Court that the scheme is unconstitutional and youre going to get a new trial, to have lawyers start preparing for trial and then all of the sudden face the prospect that Oh, we might just send you back to death row. I cant imagine.

  4. Attorney General Scott Pruitt:

    Today, I regret to advise the citizens of Oklahoma City that the Department of Corrections failed to do its job.

  5. Brian Kennedy:

    Department of Corrections needs a complete overhaul. I think people of all mentalities and people of all stripes and persuasions agree that Rikers is a mess, and when you have up to a third of corrections officers not showing up to work and leaving the inmates basically to run the jail and letting the worst that those inmates were usually the gang-affiliated inmates who reigned supreme, you're going to have violence and chaos.
