A test of character for Oklahoma University

Shepherdess Bringing in Sheep

Shepherdess Bringing in Sheep

Opinion: I am an University of Oklahoma Sooner, born, bred, and one day dead. My admiration for President David Boren stretches all the way back to my time on his “broom brigade” run for governor 40 years ago. But my university is engaged in something immoral, and it is time for Sooners to speak out.

The Meyers were a family of Jews living in France when the Nazis invaded in 1940. Merely because they were Jews, their homes were invaded, and all of their belongings plundered, including a treasured family painting by Camille Pissarro, named “Shepherdess Bringing in Sheep.”

“The state of Oklahoma is vested with the authority to carry out the sentence of death handed out by juries for the most heinous of crimes. State officials act deliberately and thoughtfully in carrying out this responsibility. This marks the eighth time a court has reviewed and upheld as constitutional the lethal injection protocol used by Oklahoma. The Court’s ruling preserves the ability of the Department of Corrections to proceed with carrying out the punishment of death. The state appreciates the justices’ thoughtful consideration of these important issues.
