Another Inmate Starved To Death (Fiction or Future)

Newscaster A: "Today the Texas Dept of Corrections locked inmate John Smith in the starvation cell."

Newscaster B: "Mr. Smith’s family held out to the last possible second before entering the viewing room adjacent to the starvation chamber in hopes that the Governor would grant a stay of starvation."

Newscaster A: "Exactly B, but the stay was not granted and Mr. Smith received his last meal at 6 p.m. Thursday. The ACLU, American Red Cross, and several other human rights groups staged protests throughout the Dallas/Ft. Worth area. The prison doctors estimate that it will take Mr. Smith 10-12 days to die without food and water based on his apparently great health."

Newscaster B: "So the question we'd like to ask our viewers is, is it really worth it to save $50 per injection and simply starve death row inmates? Check back tomorrow on the channel 10 at 10 news to see what the poll results are and for an inside look into the 'Starvation of America'; does starving inmates and other 'less productive' members of society benefit our nation? Many say we are regressing to a less favorable period in the world’s history similar to a time when the Nazi's of Germany were exterminating those people with physical and mental handicaps as well as incurable diseases. More tomorrow on the 10 O'clock news.

Is this where we are headed?

SlagleRock Out!
