Scott Peterson Sentenced

Filed under: — Different River @ 4:33 pm

Scott Peterson was sentenced to death today for the murder of his wife Laci and their unborn fetus.

If he is actually executed, he will not be deprived of food and water, since that long and painful method of execution is “cruel and unusual punishment.” On the contrary, he will be entitled to a “last meal” of pretty much whatever he wants, before being executed quickly and (perhaps) painlessly.

Thus we see that a convicted murderer has rights that a disabled, but innocent, patient does not have.
