    Yes, his life sentence has been served. Time to cremate or bury him. Go ahead.

    Convicts have a lot of time on their hands, access to legal books, and not much to think about but schemes, cons, and workarounds. Many of the unpleasant conditions in prisons are because inmates sued the facility and it backfired on them, making things worse.

    was it a life sentence or a death sentence? if life then is it life? some life sentences in the UK can be as short as 12-15 years but most are longer.

    Rumor has it that when you sneeze, your heart will skip a beat. Since your heart theoretically stopped momentarily, should one just sneeze and get out?

    He's a liberal dumocrat,
    They are the only ones that can play on words this way.

    Just shoot the slime ball and be done with it . No games to play.
    Eye for an eye.

    Beside the point here, but I have never understood the logic of a life sentence; it's a copout. Either it's a capital offense, and and he gets time - say 5 years - to show that his guilt wasn't proven, or it isn't a capital offense, and the state gets 5 years to straighten him out - one way or another - and get back for his victims what can be recovered before turning him loose.

    I don't believe in Life Sentences either, If you did something bad enough to be in Prison for the rest of your Life, you did something bad enough to be Hung. As for the Convict, put a Bullet in the Fools Head and be done with it.

    If he is claiming he has lived his life, then I vote we just bury or cremate him right now. Will save us tax dollars in the long run.

    I thought this was only if you were sentenced to death, you die, but then you come back to life however that might occur. Like being hung, which we don't do, then being pronounced dead, unstrung, and then breathing again. Thus having died for your crime.
    This guy, he's an idiot. So...

    In the 'civilized' world, execution by hanging is/was done in such a way that the neck is/was broken. That is/was the purpose for the hangman's knot - it provides a tweak.

    For the "dead"? A round to the forehead to make sure they really are.

    The drop provides the energy for both the take-up and the tweak.

    Years ago I read the autobiography of a man who, pretty much accidentally, became a professional hangman in the American West, I think late in the 19th century. He went into detail about how to get the job done right the first time. Got technical.

    Hah. I don't remember his name, but he really disliked messy hangings. The Clinton's don't seem to be all that fussy.
