Gov. Mary Fallin calls beheading ‘act of cowardice’; Death penalty sought
Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin issued a press release today insisting that the perpetrator of the Vaughn Foods beheading will be brought to justice. Cleveland County District Attorney Greg Mashburn has indicated that he will seek the death penalty in the case.
“Since the attack was reported, I have been communicating with law enforcement as well as Oklahoma’s Department of Homeland Security to ensure a thorough investigation is conducted into the motives of the attacker,” wrote Fallin. “That investigation is still ongoing, and it is unclear at this time whether the crime was an act of terrorism, workplace violence, or a gruesome combination of both.”
I hope Oklahoma get it right & file murder 1 special circumstances against Alton Nolen and seek the death penalty. #WorkplaceViolenceMyBum

Alton Nolen murdered in the name of Islam – hated "infidels". That's a hate crime and he should get the death penalty.
