Belgium, which abolished capital punishment, will “euthanize” serial rapist and murderer this week « Hot Air: "He’s not terminally ill, he just finds the prospect of life in prison unbearable, so Belgium’s going to put him down and call it a mercy killing. Fun fact: They haven’t executed anyone as punishment for a crime in more than 60 years and haven’t executed anyone for a crime committed during peacetime in nearly 100. The death penalty was formally abolished there almost 20 years ago. But they’re killing upwards of 1,800 people a year, including children, for “compassionate” reasons. Again: Terminal illness not required."
