Is this the equivalent of suicide, which is currently illegal? no, because somone else is killing himShould a prisoner have the right to choose his sentence?He didn't, the court did.Is making him live past his execution, against his will, cruel and unusual punishment?I derfer to the lawyers or the Suprean court. Should the governor have the authority to commute (is that the right term?) the sentence of everyone on death row, simply because he doesn't believe in the death penalty, even though his state does and,in this case, the prisoner does?He already has the authority to commute any sententence at his discretion with out giving a reason. It is the same for granting clemancyDoes this become state assisted suicide?Do you mean similar to "suicide by cop"? I think it is different because the State has already sentenced him to death. He is just refusing further legal action to delay carrying out the sentence.On my own, I think he is doing the wrong thing. A person who does not desire to live has somthing wrong inside. full psycological examination is indicated. At the same time, the Gov. is intefereing with the due process of the Law, but because of his position may be legally allowed to do this, for any or no reason.Frydaze1... still via phone... and with a crick in her neck. ;-) sorry to hear that.
