GOVERNOR RICK PERRY: I think we have an appropriate process in place, from the standpoint of the appeals process, to make sure that due process is addressed. And the process of the actual execution I would suggest to you is very different from Oklahoma. We only use one drug. But I'm confident that the way that the executions are taken care of in the state of Texas are appropriate.
DAVID GREGORY: And humane?
GOVERNOR RICK PERRY: And humane.
DAVID GREGORY: Was this inhumane?
GOVERNOR RICK PERRY: I don't know whether it was inhumane or not, but it was botched. And I hope that not only the governor, the legislators will look at the process in Oklahoma.
DAVID GREGORY: But you don't even want, even somebody convicted of a heinous crime, you don't want to see the government responsible for forcing a heart attack because they couldn't inject the proper lethal drugs.
GOVERNOR RICK PERRY: There is an appropriate way to deal with this. And obviously, something went terribly wrong.
