Re: Robert LatimerDec 12th, 2007
Few people seem to be aware that they placed her in a home for 3 months before she died or that they refused to allow a feeding tube which may have given them more options for pain medication. Few people seem to know how long he planned the actual killing or that he tried to cover it up afterwards. Few people know that Tracy wasn't in a vegetative state or that her pain was not constant. Few people know that her mother had described her as cheerful in her journals not too long before her father killed her. These all go a ways in explaining how I can feel sorry for Robert Latimer, but I don't see him as a completely blameless martyr.
