It sounds horrible, but think about it, he was 69 and taken out of this world at the hands of a loved one and if he was suffering so it may have not have been a bad thing. Why I remember years ago, back in the 60's, I worked with a guy in his early 20's who believed once any person reaches their 60th birthday they should be euthanized, he did not discriminate between social classes, rich, middle class, poor, impoverished, good health, bad health, didn't matter, everyone at 60 goes.

How in any way shape or form can this not be a bad thing? Where in this article does it say he was suffering? It was his wife who died of cancer. Many people live well into their 70's, 80's, and 90's, for you to suggest that anyone be euthanized based on age is just absurd. You don't say what your age is but if you really believe what you say, one could only hope you get your wish. Shame on you!!!

It is truly unfortunate that a post such as yours can not be judged as infantile, disgusting or even just plain stupid.

So...if someone beats their elderly relative to death with a clawhammer that's not so bad? Not so bad as what? How does the guy you worked with feel about euthanizing 60 and over folks now that he is almost 60 or older? Just curious, what kind of job was that?

So will this forum contain racial comments like the Somali baseball bat beating? I don't think so.

No, but pretty soon you won't be able to talk about pork, muslims, feet washing or garment wearing muslim women(why do women were and not men too?). It is against their religion. Remember they've also not want Santa to show up in schools already this year.......or have Target & Walmart stop their uniform wearing too....or build them a Muslim bathroom or not let you enjoy alcohol and pork in front of their people or sell them.

Pretty soon you and I( an Asian Minority myself ) won't be able to stop them and their rights. They are very very very disrepectful of other's culture and way of life here in America as i've heard, seen & notice. They don't want to assimilate only want to join a terrorist group to destroy America.

Yet ours laws and the money grabbing lawyers are on their side. No other immigrants have hate us and disrespect us soo much and at the same time enjoy our freedom then these Muslim Somalis......crazy!

It is the 2000lbs gorilla coming to roost in America......sorry America!

no because white people don't do anything wrong and if they ever did, it just that one man that gets blamed not their whole race. Minorities on the other hand, their whole race is nothing but a bunch of murderers if one of them should murder anyone. thats the law around here, it seems.
wow, your next post proves my point......you're not too bright........(laughing at you)
