You just can’t make this stuff up.
Belgium is opposed to capital punishment.
A rapist/murderer–who once would have been subject to execution–now wants to die.
He isn’t sick but wants euthanasia because he doesn’t want to spend life in prison.
So, a doctor will lethally inject a prisoner, but it won’t be considered capital punishment.
Cruel and unusual death with dignity strikes again!
