First, this is so damned evil I don't know what to say. A woman in Virginia is charged with murder after throwing her 2 1/2-year-old granddaughter off a six-story mall parking garage walkway.
The worst part is the little girl survived for a span of time. She was transported to the hospital where she later passed.
I don't know whether I'd like to do the same to this soulless thing that she did to that baby, or to just put a bullet in her.
Next we have this creepy story:
Some 911 calls in Manhattan will now bring out two ambulances, one hurrying to the scene and one lagging slightly behind.
The first one will try to save the patient’s life. The second one will try to save the patient’s kidneys, in case the first ambulance fails.
After months of grappling with the ethical and legal implications, New York City medical officials are beginning to test a system that they hope will one day greatly increase the number of organs collected for transplant.
For five months starting Wednesday, the city will deploy a specially trained team that will monitor 911 calls for people who may be in danger of dying, like those having a heart attack. If efforts to resuscitate the patient fail, the team will quickly move in and try to save the kidneys; normally, patients who die outside hospitals cannot be donors because if too much time passes after the heart stops beating, the organs are unusable.
City officials said the project would be the first of its kind in the United States, though similar operations have been carried out in Europe. They said that they believed they had solved any ethical problems by adopting what they called very conservative standards for who would qualify as a donor.
To overcome fears that patients would be allowed to die for the sake of their organs, officials said that doctors and paramedics trying to resuscitate a patient would not be told whether the preservation unit was waiting in the wings until a supervisor had given the order to stop rescue efforts. The organ team, which will travel in a bright red and white ambulance marked “Organ Preservation Unit,” is supposed to remain out of sight.
The dead person would have to have registered as a donor through a card, driver’s license or online registry, and the family would also have to give consent.
The trial, which is being financed with a $1.5 million federal grant, is limited: to most areas of Manhattan, to the hours of 4 p.m. to midnight, to adults between 18 and 60, and to people who die of cardiac arrest at home or another residence.
To satisfy concerns that evidence of a crime could be destroyed in the harvesting process, a police detective sergeant would go to the home to be sure that there had been no foul play.
This seems rather ghoulish to me... And the shock to the family! To have your loved one suffer cardiac arrest in your living room and then have a team rush them for a snap decision? This whole thing just smells.
(Read the rest here.)
Now, a good story: The Oklahoma State Election Board is appealing the injunction imposed by a petty dictator in a black robe, otherwise known as a federal judge, against We The People's decision to restrict Sharia law being considered in that state's courts.
It would seem like a no-brainer to bar judges from considering Sharia, which is highly unconstitutional and deeply oppressive of women... Unless you're a leftist dhimmi who must avoid offending Islam at all costs.
CAIR in Oklahoma is seeking a permanent injunction against the People's will. Why they are being considered instead of being rounded up and charged with belonging to a terrorist organization is beyond me.
I suppose we shall have to wait and see if the federal government imposes Sharia and dhimmitude upon the people of Oklahoma, who wisely don't want legal decisions based upon the 'teachings' of a pedophiliac and murderous marauder.
Next, a wise teacher of that so-called religion of peace mentioned above beat his wife for daring to want a more 'western lifestyle'; or a life which includes civil rights, I would suppose.
