  •  How do you feel about cutting him up for parts? (0+ / 0-)

    Two kidneys, many pints of blood, two corneas, a heart, pair of lungs, a face if anyone would want it, etc.

    Might help save a few lives with his parts.

    (that slope is so amazingly slippery, so watch out with your answer)

    Happy little moron, Lucky little man.

    •  The slipery slope is the only issue (0+ / 0-)

      If a prisoner is going to be put to death, then why not harvest the organs and do good with them.

      But of course transplant surgeries are big business even though no one is supposed to profit from them.  And we all know how corruption works, so if organ harvesting was allowed, then there would never be an end to the demand and there would be incredible pressure to execute more prisoners.

      I'm not calling for executions, I just can't get that worked up over them where life in prison is the alternative.
