Has Jack Kevorkian "seen the light"?
Inclusion Daily Express
Jack Kevorkian, according to his attorney, now has regrets over helping at least 130 people to kill themselves.
He doesn't regret advancing his cause. He just regrets breaking laws to do it -- including the Michigan law under which he was convicted of second-degree murder.
Well, one could say, "It's about freakin' time." I mean, you'd think that after seven years in a prison cell, any fella would realize that going on "60 Minutes" to showcase your crime was bit of a tactical error.
Before you think Jack's "seen the light" or "drank the Kool-aid", don't you find the timing of his little epiphany a bit handy?
I mean, the argument that his health has deteriorated to the point that he will die in the next 12 months -- if he stays in prison -- gets a little threadbare after its used four years in a row.
No, about the next best argument a prisoner can use before a parole board is that he understands the crime and has regrets about it.
My guess, and this is only a guess based on witnessing how zealous Jack has been for several decades, is that he regrets that his blunder caused a backlash that has been responsible for keeping assisted suicide from being legalized in all but one state.
