When a life sentence is humane

Posted by Dave Bath on 2010-12-12


Something is rotten in a society if the kindest thing one can do for a sick person is give them a life sentence.

A 71-year-old terminally ill man has been sentenced to 21 years in a California prison for rolling his wheelchair into a San Diego bank and holding it up with a replica BB gun.

The poor old guy wanted to get caught so he wouldn’t have to live and die on the streets.

What a system!

Thank goodness the judge showed mercy the only way he could, by giving the guy a roof, food and medical treatment the only way it could be ensured.
