"Dr Death" Kevorkian Released from Jail

 

Euthanasia advocate Dr. Jack Kevorkian has been released from prison after eight years for charges stemming from him assisting in at least 130 suicides. Kevorkian was 71 years old when he was charged and sent to prison.

Now 79, he was met outside the prison by Mike Wallace, whose original story on Kevorkian -- including the airing of an assisted suicide -- led to the doctor being charged and convicted in the first place. The men hugged as they were reunited.

Attorney Mayer Morganroth said: "He thanks everybody for coming. He thanks the thousands who have supported him, have written to him and the enormous amount of people who have really been comfortable in supporting him."

  Good!  
 
I'm glad hes out of jail. He never should have been in jail for anything. He was the one person who was willing to face the reality, that some terminally ill people to not want to live anymore, and they should not be forced to. I've always agree with his statement, "We treat our pets better than we treat out family"

I'm glad he is out of jail, and i only wish that he would be aloud to continue his work.
