<quoted text>Nope, you sound a little strange to me.

All of your conspiracies were covered during the trial.
Several witness' testified that Majors had syringes in his possession (it was reported that he used some of them for his drug habits) & he bragged about having potassium chloride. One was his boyfriend of over 10 years.
Many witness' saw Majors with victims just prior to them dying. VCH sop for drugs was way to lax.
When potassium chloride was used the unused portion was tossed without any documentation.
Many vials were found at Majors' home & in two different vehicles that he used.
Most or all of the vials had multiple needle punctures in tops indicating that they had been used.
Nurses reported missing potassium chloride from stock.

I could go on & on but it's all in the court documentation.
I guess I missed something in there. It was exactly 1 year 1 month and 7 days after he was arrested that they found this evidence.

Based on Berkeley universities studies, it takes 1250mg of PCh to be considered a lethal dose. The "small syringe" described in all but 1 statement from eye witnesses would only be a 100mg syringe. 1 person out of 24 stated he used a "large syringe about the size of a mag lite" which would be the only accurate size to be witnessed. The case 149 F. 3d 709 page 7 states that the evidence was not applicable to entered for this case due to possibility of outside interference via Atty Marshall Pinkus.

I really have done my homework on this. I have recorded statements from 17 people that worked with him, 3 on his shift most of the time. 2 from doctors whom where let go from the hospital after their testimony was thrown out because they had suddenly been put under administrative leave from the hospital which deemed their affidavit not credible.

Way to much throws up red flags to me. I'm pretty sure, at least for the current time, I'm entitled to my own opinion and if this is how I feel and I feel that the person responsible for this is still practicing medicine locally, I can speak my mind on it. If you don't like it, that's fine. If you don't agree with it, that's fine. But I have my own reasons and I've devoted a lot of time (years) to studying this case. I have never spoken to him or his family on this matter. I don't even personally know him or his family. But I do feel like he was a scapegoat for a problem much larger than the public was allowed to hear and see.

Potassium is not used as you have written. You are trying to talk about something you don't have any knowledge about. You should probably go back to the bathroom and wash you hands. Your fingernails are dirty from scratching your rear end.

Isn't Potassium Chloride - KCl, Not PCh. I think that throws some red flags into your argument.

ok, here's my opinion......1st of all, LPN's can not push IV meds in a hospital setting! 2nd, Lpn's don't typically work in ICE, and never alone and 3rd, all of these patients were ICU...meaning they were very ill to start with, HELLO! I feel for the families of the deceased and understand they needed answers and closure.
This taken from an Indy news article..."Medical experts testified that the seven deaths could have been caused by overdoses of potassium chloride, which stops the heart and leaves no chemical trace" if you were going to inject someone with something to kill them, why would you do it with a witness?
Why would the hospital wait so long to trend why their death rate tripled that year?

Let me add that a lethal dose of KCL aka Potassium Chloride would leave the patient with seizure like activity...severe muscle twitching. Homework my behind....KCL comes in prefilled syringes. And it's not given in mg (milligrams) it's given in mEq (milli equivalents). And, syringes come in cc/ml not mg.

They have only been packaged this way since 1998... Post OLM conviction. Prior it was powder ratio to liquid. Measured in a mg dosage prior to mixing and labeled as such in pre filled syringes. It was known as Klor-Con by a company called Astra. At least that's what was used in this hospital. They supposedly found jars of this in powder form in his van.

WoW!! It really doesn't take a rocket scientist to realize that the hospital has ran like a vet clinic at best! So to say rules & regulations is major B.S. Maybe he didn't work alone & maybe the victims were in bad shape as far as their health went but that was No one's place to end their live's other then God's!! God Rest their Souls & Bless all of the families that have to go on without the loss of their Loved one's!!!

My mother was a victim in this case. She went in the hospital with the flu and died the next morning after FIVE strokes. She never ever had any health issues before. A different nurse came in her room gave her a shot and two minutes later she was dead. I remember good ole QUACK Swain setting up test to run, but never did anything in a 24 hour period. I will always believe that there was more to this than just Majors. The administrator and head nurse jumped ship, with her going to Swain's nursing home. Now Union is just as bad. My wife went in there with high blood pressure 212/156 and they did NOTHING for her. The stupid nurse was sitting outside her room at the desk talking about her dogs instead of working on my wife. They only gave her water pills and sent her home and her doctor called us and was stunned that they gave her that. He called in the correct prescription and got her back to normal. I will always believe that these places are nothing more than a band-aid station.

Wow... That's like saying pot was illegal in 1892... Just because its measured that way now, doesn't mean it was then. It's been changed for the reason of this case. I'd love to know ur ties with this!

Then you should be familiar with the change in regulations and specified dosing increment as of 1998. I'm not gonna sit here and make this a pissing contest over who knows the most. But anyone that is knowledgeable at all on the chemical mixture is aware of the obscene amount that it would require to be lethal. That's my point.
