    than to go through all the layers of the appeals process, scrounge around the  world for any source still willing to sell lethal drugs, and then kill them twenty years(!) after the sentencing.

    Hell, if it takes THAT LONG, there goes any possible argument against "life without parole".

    If it's
    Not your body
    Then it's
    Not your choice
    AND it's
    None of your damn business!

      why they keep doing it: class warfare. Uppity minorities & poor people must be shown that "justice" is about keeping them in line.

      The violence is so ritualized. *shudder^
