Awaiting McVeigh’s Execution
This chapter examines the attitudes of survivors and the families of victims of the Oklahoma City bombing toward Timothy McVeigh and his impending execution. It considers the factors that family members and survivors took into account in deciding whether or not they wished to view McVeigh's execution, including their opinions on the death penalty, whether they felt a duty or responsibility to witness McVeigh's execution, and what behaviors they wished to see from McVeigh immediately before he was executed. It also discusses the struggle to broadcast McVeigh's execution via closed-circuit television and concludes with an analysis of participants' reactions to McVeigh's media visibility.
