RE: Don't be a victim of "mainstream" media.
IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢d sign up for that. To me, 15 years is pretty slowly compared to a few days. It's also not like she was eating anything so the whole stomach pain issue youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re probably thinking about was likely void, but if you think there was pain then please support your local euthanasia advocates, someone in pain should be given the option to end their suffering on their terms. IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve made my wishes very clear to my wife and my family that if I am in a persistent vegetative state or severely brain damaged I would want them to pull the plug. The key is to live your life in such a way that if you get hit by a truck tomorrow you have as few regrets as possible.
The problem was the assault was on the right to die and there the case is very clear. Even if she never said that it was what she wanted (because most people are too dumb to make their wishes known beforehand) she was clearly incapacitated and the rights to make the decision fell to her nearest living relative Ã¢â‚¬â€œ her husband. In Florida the husbandÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s wishes trump the parentsÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ and thatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s exactly what happened. If the parents felt that there was foul play involved they shouldnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t make the fight about the right to die, but to dissolve the marriage between their daughter and her husband. I donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t know Florida law on the subject, but IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m assuming that if there was enough evidence to convict the husband of attempted murder he would not have power of attorney over his brain-dead wife. Since heÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s not in jail, this wasnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t the case and justice was served. If during the autopsy they find additional evidence that will allow a (re)trial then he simply gets convicted of murder instead of attempted murder. Either way, the system works.
