To The Editor:
A few years ago, I had to have two of my dogs put down. I took them to the vet and watched as he lovingly cared for them in the procedure. One shot in a leg vein and within five seconds, each of them was dead. Almost instant death.
If this country is going to continue this practice on humans, then why cant it be done in a way like the one used by vets? It seems to me that making a prisoner go through what happened recently is really cruel and unusual, banned by the Bill of Rights.
My second complaint: During an electrical outage of an extended time, if a hardware dealer decides to boost his profit by raising the price on his generators by $10 to $15, he is charged with price gouging.
Yet, fuel oil, natural gas, propane and other fuel dealers can boost their prices using the old supply and demand scenario. Why arent they charged with the same offense?
This country has no shortage of these fuels, no matter what we are told. My electrical bill nearly doubled in just one month.
