WHAT A CROCK!!! Shows the meantality of the Court System!!!donllivi
this is just so stupid, most likly the cops pressed tax charges against her because they found out in reality they didn't have much of a case against this old gal? its like Al Capone, you can't get them based on the actual crime, so you go after them for unpaid taxes? if her kit was so terrible why have we not heard of very many actual uses of this kit by thousands of people so far who bought it and offed themselves? seems they can only trace it back to four people?
How a country can consider its citizens 'free' if it denies them the right to choose if, when and how they end their own life is a mystery to me. A person can do what they like with their property, with their money. They can end the life of an old or sick pet or slaughter livestock. They can hunt and fish. They can end the lives of others in self-defense, or under order of war. They can choose to remove life support from a brain dead relative. But they can't be allowed to decide when to conclude their own lives. People who wish to end their own lives are not necessarily insane and in need of protecting 'for their own good.' They have made a determination based on the facts evident to themselves, which may or may not seem sufficient to others. They may not even be terminally ill or in horrible pain. Because of the current state of the law, people who wish to end their own lives are forced into degrading solutions, which caused more trauma all around than is at all necessary. At the point of the most critical decision, adults are treated as witless infants, unable to understand what is best for them. This is paternalism and despotic control at its worst.
"None was terminally ill"Pretty low bar on grammar in this article.
SAT testing considers "none" to be singular.http://data.grammarbook.com/blog/singular-vs-plural/none-were-vs-none-was/•when none quantifies a plural noun, both singular and plural agreements are acceptable.http://motivatedgrammar.wordpress.com/2009/01/08/none-is-none-are-grammar-according-to-clarkson/You must have a CliffsNotes grammar if you think it's that cut-and-dried.
i think the goverment needs to allow some shot to put people out of there misery and out of pain they kill people in prison on death row with an injection they kill animals at the vet so why not end the suffering and pain on those needed this country is backwards the ones who need to end the misery cant and the ones who dont get put to death grant it there killers but that shot could be used on someone suffering really bad from cancer or an old person who is so much pain that modern medicine dont work anymore ....its pathetic....
Something is terribly wrong with this story.Why would any prosecutor, in his/her right mind, not prosecute a person for assisting in the deaths of people who are not terminally ill? Where are the families of the people who killed themselves when they were not terminally ill? They should be protesting loudly against this travesty of justice. Is this old lady some judge's mother?
this is TAX court, she does not have 5th amendment rights, unless they are to avoid getting convected on tax Fraud charges, SHE is NOT charged in the deaths, YET
I find the name "GLADD Group" offensive because it is too similar to GLAAD, the LBGT advocate group.
Not to mention GLAD bags which could be a trademark issue...unless that's what she called "material for the hood".
I find it offensive that a search for WRWA turns up the Will Rogers Regional Airport when I want the Wisconsin Regional Writers' Association. Geez.
