America's Bizarre Attitude Toward Death

Why was the life of Charles Manson treated as being more valuable than the life of an unborn child?

Less than 100 years ago, an 18-year-old named Frank Dupre stole a diamond ring from Kaiser’s Jewelry Store on Peachtree…

Within a month, police captured the fugitive murderer. Dupre’s trial took two weeks. He was convicted and received a sentence of death by hanging. Frank Dupre was executed on September 1, 1922. Irony alert – only nine months had elapsed between Dupre’s crime and his punishment.
