Jack Kevorkian’s lawyer is upset–and issued a press release to let the rest of us know–that the Michigan Parole Board refused to recommend clemency or pardon, based on Kevorkian’s supposed ill health. But why should it? Kevorkian is an utterly unrepentant murderer who would spend his time as a free man justifying his crime and his assisted suicide campaign. He is right where he belongs.
Now given what Jack Kevorkian is in jail for, wouldn’t it be more consistent with his principles for his “ill health” to result not in clemency, but in execution?
