Thread Name: Obit: death of UK child killer Ian Brady
Subject: RE: Obit: death of UK child killer Ian Brady
One of the many things I found totally repugnant about Pierrepoint's book were the accounts of the Prison Doctor verifying that death had occurred, shoving his stethoscope against the unfortunate victim's chest in the chamber under the execution floor.
I understand that a doctor is present during American executions too.
Surely a doctor is betraying his entire vocation by agreeing to play any part in this barbarism?
