The Empiricists declared that the search for ultimate causes of phenomena was vain, but they were active in endeavoring to discover immediate causes. The "tripod of the Empirics" was their own chance observations (experience), learning obtained from contemporaries and predecessors (experience of others), and, in the case of new diseases, the formation of conclusions from other diseases which they resembled (analogy). Empiricism enjoyed sporadic continuing popularity in later centuries up to the nineteenth. (From Castiglioni, A History of Medicine, 2d ed, p186; Dr. James H.

Medical practice: defendants and prisoners. (1/153)

It is argued in this paper that a doctor cannot serve two masters. The work of the prison medical officer is examined and it is shown that his dual allegiance to the state and to those individuals who are under his care results in activities which largely favour the former. The World Health Organisation prescribes a system of health ethics which indicates, in qualitative terms, the responsibility of each state for health provisions. In contrast, the World Medical Association acts as both promulgator and guardian of a code of medical ethics which determines the responsibilities of the doctor to his patient. In the historical sense medical practitioners have always emphasized the sanctity of the relationship with their patients and the doctor's role as an expert witness is shown to have centered around this bond. The development of medical services in prisons has focused more on the partnership between doctor and institution. Imprisonment in itself could be seen as prejudicial to health as are disciplinary methods which are more obviously detrimental. The involvement of medical practitioners in such procedures is discussed in the light of their role as the prisoner's personal physician.  (+info)

How physician executives and clinicians perceive ethical issues in Saudi Arabian hospitals. (2/153)

OBJECTIVES: To compare the perceptions of physician executives and clinicians regarding ethical issues in Saudi Arabian hospitals and the attributes that might lead to the existence of these ethical issues. DESIGN: Self-completion questionnaire administered from February to July 1997. SETTING: Different health regions in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. PARTICIPANTS: Random sample of 457 physicians (317 clinicians and 140 physician executives) from several hospitals in various regions across the kingdom. RESULTS: There were statistically significant differences in the perceptions of physician executives and clinicians regarding the existence of various ethical issues in their hospitals. The vast majority of physician executives did not perceive that seven of the eight issues addressed by the study were ethical concerns in their hospitals. However, the majority of the clinicians perceived that six of the same eight issues were ethical considerations in their hospitals. Statistically significant differences in the perceptions of physician executives and clinicians were observed in only three out of eight attributes that might possibly lead to the existence of ethical issues. The most significant attribute that was perceived to result in ethical issues was that of hospitals having a multinational staff. CONCLUSION: The study calls for the formulation of a code of ethics that will address specifically the physicians who work in the kingdom of Saudi Arabia. As a more immediate initiative, it is recommended that seminars and workshops be conducted to provide physicians with an opportunity to discuss the ethical dilemmas they face in their medical practice.  (+info)

The role of ethical principles in health care and the implications for ethical codes. (3/153)

A common ethical code for everybody involved in health care is desirable, but there are important limitations to the role such a code could play. In order to understand these limitations the approach to ethics using principles and their application to medicine is discussed, and in particular the implications of their being prima facie. The expectation of what an ethical code can do changes depending on how ethical properties in general are understood. The difficulties encountered when ethical values are applied reactively to an objective world can be avoided by seeing them as a more integral part of our understanding of the world. It is concluded that an ethical code can establish important values and describe a common ethical context for health care but is of limited use in solving new and complex ethical problems.  (+info)

Arguments for zero tolerance of sexual contact between doctors and patients. (4/153)

Some doctors do enter into sexual relationships with patients. These relationships can be damaging to the patient involved. One response available to both individual doctors and to disciplinary bodies is to prohibit sexual contact between doctors and patients ("zero tolerance"). This paper considers five ways of arguing for a zero tolerance policy. The first rests on an empirical claim that such contact is almost always harmful to the patient involved. The second is based on a "principles" approach while the third originates in "virtues" ethics. The fourth argues that zero tolerance is an "a priori" truth. These four attempt to establish that the behaviour is always wrong and ought, therefore, to be prohibited. The fifth argument is counterfactual. It claims a policy that allowed sexual contact would have unacceptable consequences. Given the responsibility of regulatory bodies to protect the public, zero tolerance is a natural policy to develop.  (+info)

On becoming non-judgmental: some difficulties for an ethics of counselling. (5/153)

The growth in the availability of counselling services has been accompanied by growing concern about the conduct of counsellors, which in turn has led to the expressed need for an ethics of counselling. This paper will argue that there is an inherent tension between this need and the central tenets of one variety of counselling, client-centred counselling. The tension is identifiable on the basis of an inquiry into the nature of moral judgment which results in the recognition of the implicit value base in client-centred counselling. It is only when this value base is made explicit that any adequate ethics of counselling becomes a viable possibility.  (+info)

Power and the teaching of medical ethics. (6/153)

This paper argues that ethics education needs to become more reflective about its social and political ethic as it participates in the construction and transmission of medical ethics. It argues for a critical approach to medical ethics and explores the political context in medical schools and some of the peculiar problems in medical ethics education.  (+info)

Would you like to know what is wrong with you? On telling the truth to patients with dementia. (7/153)

OBJECTIVES: To discover what dementia sufferers feel is wrong with them; what they have been told and by whom, and what they wish to know about their illness. BACKGROUND: Ethical guidelines regarding telling truth appear to be equivocal. Declarations of cognitively intact subjects, attitudes of family members and current psychiatric practice all vary, but no previous research has been published concerning what patients with dementia would in fact like to know about their diagnosis and prognosis. DESIGN: Questionnaire study of the patients' opinions. SETTING: Old Age Psychiatry Service in Worcester. PARTICIPANTS: 30 consecutive patients with dementia. RESULTS: The quality of information received has been poor and many patients have no opportunity to discuss their illness with anybody. Despite that almost half of the participants in this study had adequate insight and a majority declared that they would like to know more about their predicament. CONCLUSIONS: Although many patients would like to know the truth, the rights of those who do not want to know should also be respected. Therefore the diagnosis of dementia should not be routinely disclosed but (just as in other disorders) health care professionals should seek to understand their patients' preferences and act appropriately according to their choice.  (+info)

DPN opposes the death penalty in all cases, unconditionally, regardless of the method chosen to kill the condemned prisoner. The death penalty is inherently cruel and degrading, an archaic punishment that is incompatible with human dignity. To end the death penalty is to abandon a destructive diversionary and divisive public policy that is not consistent with widely held values. The death penalty not only runs the risk of irrevocable error, it is also costly to the public purse as well as in social and psychological terms.The death penalty has not been proved to have a special deterrent effect. It tends to be applied in a discriminatory way on grounds of race and class. It denies the possibility of reconciliation and rehabilitation. It prolongs the suffering of the murder victims family and extends that suffering to the loved ones of the condemned prisoner. It diverts resources that could be better used to work against violent crime and assist those affected by it ...

During the past 50 years, more and more countries have abolished the death penalty. Today, more than half of the countries of the world have removed capital punishment from their laws for crimes such as murder. The use of the death penalty is highly controversial, and regularly creates political tension between countries with differing perspectives on the issue. Nevertheless, very little research has been devoted to studying the determinants of death penalty abolition. This thesis is intended as one step towards filling that gap, and studies the political, cultural and socio-economic determinants of abolition of the death penalty. A range of political, cultural and socio-economic factors that are hypothesised to influence the likelihood of abolition are presented. The hypotheses are tested empirically on 145 countries observed in from 1960 to 2004. Event history analysis, more specifically a semiparametric Cox proportional hazards model, is employed. Event history analysis is ideally suited for ...

The Hippocratic Oath has long embodied all that is good in the medical profession. Those who swear by it vow to act for the benefit of the sick and to prevent harm and injustice from befalling their patients.. But in the correctional system, the Oath is often undermined or, at best, ignored.. The Washington Department of Corrections (WDOC) is an unfortunate example. Medical professionals within the WDOC acknowledge in depositions that its medical staff are required to use a different standard to evaluate patients than is used in the community, and some medical personnel in WDOC concede there is nothing science-based or humane about the policies that govern their decision-making.. These claims are currently the subject of a lawsuit, in U.S. District Court for the Western District of Washington, brought against WDOC by the non-profit Columbia Legal Services (CLS) on behalf of prisoners throughout the State of Washington. [See, Daniel Haldane, et al. v. G. Stephen Hammond, M.D., et al., No. ...
The Best Application of Hippocrates Oath on different nowadays languages and on Ionic Greek language.Now you can read Hippocratic Oath in the following
1. We recognise that every human being has a right to life. Our rage cannot give way to what are, in no uncertain terms, new cycles of violence. We refuse to deem legitimate any act of violence that would give the State the right to take life in our names. Justice meted by the State cannot bypass complex socio-political questions of violence against women by punishing rapists by death. Death penalty is often used to distract attention away from the real issue - it changes nothing but becomes a tool in the hands of the State to further exert its power over its citizens. A huge set of changes are required in the system to end the widespread and daily culture of rape.. 2. There is no evidence to suggest that the death penalty acts as a deterrent to rape. Available data shows that there is a low rate of conviction in rape cases and a strong possibility that the death penalty would lower this conviction rate even further as it is awarded only under the rarest of rare circumstances. The most ...

A British national who was facing the mandatory death penalty for the alleged murder of his girlfriend in Kenya was acquitted on 8th June 2017, as the trial court judge found that the accused had no case to answer, having heard the evidence of the prosecution.. Carl Singleton, from Cumbria, had moved to Kenya in 2013 to live with his girlfriend, Peris Agumbi. Agumbi died in November 2014 after suffering diabetic hypertension and respiratory failure. Singleton was alleged to have deliberately destroyed Agumbis supply of insulin and was charged with her murder..

As these and similar state efforts have been tied up in court proceedings, death penalty states are turning to compounding pharmacies (i.e., a largely unregulated source of drugs) and invoking secrecy to keep the public from discovering the source of those execution drugs. For an execution to be humane, the drug or drugs used must be exactly what they purport to be, and the only way to know for certain what is in the syringe is to use a FDA-approved drug.. Furthermore, it is critically important that the public, the courts, and condemned prisoners know what drugs will be used in executions. Any lack of transparency around the form or source of the drugs puts condemned prisoners at risk of being executed with drugs that either will not work as planned or will cause excruciating pain and suffering.. Many conservatives see secrecy as a sure sign of government tyranny. In this instance, I agree with them.. It is truly distressing to see so many public officials take questionable, if not illegal, ...

A recent Gallup poll found the lowest level of support for the death penalty in America since 1972. Gallups October poll measured Americans abstract support at 60%, a 20-percentage point decline from 1994, when 80% of respondents were in favor of the death penalty for those convicted of murder. Support for the death penalty differed sharply among those who identified themselves with a political party: 81% of Republicans supported the death penalty, while only 47% of Democrats and 60% of Independents favored it. However, support among all three groups has dropped in the last 25 years, with the Democrats support declining 28 percentage points since its peak in 1994. This poll measured the publics support for capital punishment in theory, without any comparison to other punishments. When Gallup and other polls have offered respondents a choice of the proper punishment for murder - the death penalty or life in prison without parole - respondents are about evenly split, with less than 50% ...

COLL-E 104 16508 The Death Penalty in America (Sandys M) (S & H) (3 cr.) 9:05AM 9:55AM TR See Schedule of Classes for discussion section times In our current legal system, the death penalty is presented as the ultimate punishment for the ultimate offense. This course considers whether the application of the death penalty in America meets that standard. In particular, the class will be guided by the following types of questions: What crimes are eligible for the sentence of death? How are decisions made about who receives a sentence of death? Is there racism in our system of capital punishment? Why are people in favor of or opposed to capital punishment? What role does possible incentive have in discussions about the death penalty? What is the purpose of a system of capital punishment ...
The nations 100th death row exoneree, Ray Krone, and Tennesseans for Alternatives to the Death Penalty are launching an open letter to Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam asking that the state not resume executions this year.. In his invitation to join him in signing the letter, Ray reminds citizens of the death penalty systems failings and the continued risk of executing the innocent. Tennessees wrongfully convicted - Paul House, Michael McCormick, Gussie Vann, and Ndume Olatushani - bolster Rays claim that our states system is broken and cannot be trusted.. We ask Governor Haslam to stop all executions until the legislature has considered the recommendations of the Tennessee Committee to Study the Administration of the Death Penalty (2007-2009); to ensure transparency concerning the source of Tennessees lethal injection drugs; and to consider how the millions of dollars wasted on the death penalty might be spent to address the needs of victims families, for more resources for law ...

Kevin M. Rivera Medina (KR): Over a hundred years ago, groups that had a lot to do with building and developing the Puerto Rican nation were greatly identified with their right to life, over and against the slavery in which many of them found themselves, against the death penalty. Here we see people ranging all the way from Masons to spiritualist groups, and they have carried this struggle against the death penalty with them from way back. So yes, it has been developing for a long time. Another thing, as Carmelo stated very well, is that now in more recent times, when the death penalty is trying to impose itself on the wishes of a people as written down in their constitution, people react to that kind of thing, and they view it, somehow, almost as an attack on what is the identity of their people. So in that sense, this carries an importance for us as a group.. Now, there is a second importance, and that is the importance of the Puerto Rican experience for the rest of the world; it has to do ...
In the city of Chhatrapur, Ganjam district, Odisha state, India, the Councillor for Ward-6 by the name of Laxmidutta Pradhan, who was also a local leader of the Biju Janata Dal (BJD) party, was hacked to death by a group of assailants armed with swords, machetes and stick.. The incident happened in front of the Councillors house and was caught on the houses CCTV cameras. Mr. Pradhans brother attempted to interfere with the assault, but only made it worse. His involvement made the attackers return after they were already leaving and deliver more blows to the Councillor, and also struck the brother a few times, amputating his arm and leaving him in critical condition..

Other people see it as a good-government issue. But the support that this bill is getting from conservative members is evidence that you can get justice through eliminating the death penalty, and you can get efficient government through eliminating the death penalty.. ...
A recent survey by the Kinder Institute of Houston, Texas, found that more than two-thirds (69%) of area residents preferred alternative sentences over the death penalty, and that number is growing as the population becomes more diverse. The survey asked whether persons convicted of first-degree murder should receive a death sentence, life in prison without parole, or life with the possibility of parole after 25 years. Only 28% of respondents chose the death penalty. Life without parole was the most popular option, receiving 39% support, while life with the possibility of parole was second with 29%. Just four years ago, combined support for alternative sentences was only 54%. The Kinder report noted that in the past three decades the Houston area has been transformed into the most ethnically and culturally diverse large metropolitan region in the nation. Whites now constitute a minority in every age demographic except those 65 and older. This growing diversity may be a factor in changing ...

Councillors were updated yesterday on the councils progress in implementing the new National Environment Standards for Freshwater and regional water plan changes that came into effect two months ago.. While progress had been made in most areas, councillors had questions about the requirement for farm plans, which one councillor said were creating a traffic jam.. Between the announcement of the new national rules at the beginning of August and the end of September, the council had received 102 public inquires, a report to councillors written by consents manager Joanna Gilroy said.. That led to staff thanking councillors for approving an annual budget increase of $1million to hire 16 new staff to ensure Otago complied with the new national freshwater standards in August.. A new staff member would start next month to help respond to public inquiries, which had spiked.. Other progress included creating an information hub on its website about the new national and regional water rules, training ...
NOT ABUSE THEIR POSITION FOR PERSONAL GAIN.. AZAPO will mandate its councillors to interact with the communities they serve through ward committees and other community organs, such as street committees, community policing fora, and where these do not exist or are inadequate, AZAPO councillors will assist the community in creating them. No AZAPO councillor will live outside the community/ ward they represent. Within the limits of the current governance system, AZAPO will recall any councillor or councillors the community wants removed due to poor performance. 3.2 ROOT OUT CORRUPTION. Corruption means the diversion of much needed resources for service delivery and development to the unjust enrichment of individuals or organisations. Therefore corruption is far from being a victimless crime, its victims are the thousands of people who need the state to deliver much needed services.. To root out corruption, AZAPO will ensure that municipalities have strong internal and external supervision, and ...
The Oath is arguably the best known text of the Hippocratic Corpus, although most modern scholars do not attribute it to Hippocrates himself, estimating it to have been written in the fourth or fifth century BC.[7] Alternatively, classical scholar Ludwig Edelstein proposed that the oath was written by the Pythagoreans, an idea that others questioned for lack of evidence for a school of Pythagorean medicine.[8]. Its general ethical principles are also found in other works of the Corpus: the Physician mentions the obligation to keep the holy things of medicine within the medical community (i.e. not to divulge secrets); it also mentions the special position of the doctor with regard to his patients, especially women and girls.[9] However, several aspects of the Oath contradict patterns of practice established elsewhere in the Corpus. Most notable is its ban on the use of the knife, even for small procedures such as lithotomy, even though other works in the Corpus provide guidance on performing ...
RIYADH (Reuters) - Saudi Arabia must stop the use of the death penalty following a significant increase in executions in the kingdom in the last six weeks, Amnesty International said Friday.. At least 27 people have been executed in the top oil exporter in 2011, equalling the total number of people executed in 2010 while 15 were executed in May alone, the rights group said in a statement.. Rape, murder, apostasy, armed robbery and drug trafficking are all punishable by death under the kingdoms strict interpretation of sharia law.. The Saudi authorities must immediately stop executions and commute all death sentences, with a view to abolishing the death penalty completely, said Philip Luther, the groups deputy director for the Middle East and North Africa.. Amnesty is aware of over 100 prisoners, many of whom are foreign nationals currently on death row, he added.. A spokesman at the Ministry of Interior was not immediately available to comment.. Two Saudi brothers Muhammad Jaber Shahbah ...
To the editor:. Incumbent councilors at-large Melissa Cox and Jamie OHara do their homework. They also respectfully listen to their constituents, whether they agree with them or not. They deserve to be reelected.. Candidates for councilors at large Chris DiMercurio Sicuranza, Peter Cannavo, John McCarthy and Joe Ciolino also seem to share those traits. Any two of them would be good additions to the Gloucester City Council.. However, I cannot make the same recommendation for incumbent Jen Holmgren. One thing that councilor at large Holmgren does not do is her homework, not consistently. Neither is she responsive or respectful to constituents. She not only never returned my calls or responded to my emails, when I saw her in person she angrily told me that she would not talk to me, listen to me or read anything I send her because she trusts the opinion of the chairman of the Gloucester Board of Health on the topic of fluoridation. But, its not just me who she ignores and abuses.. I was forwarded ...
An opposition Pailin commune councillor was arrested on Tuesday shortly after he posted a video on social media rejecting Prime Minister Hun Sens offer to CNRP officials to jump ship and join the CPP in anticipation of the partys potential dissolution. On Sunday, the premier said CNRP defectors would be welcomed into the ruling partys fold and be able to keep their jobs, an offer very few councillors have accepted so far. A day later, Stung Kach Commune Councillor Chhun Sithy live-streamed his rejection of Hun Sens offer on his Facebook account. He was arrested less than 24 hours later and was still being questioned at the Pailin Provincial Court last night.
The Advocates for Human Rights, in collaboration with the World Coalition Against the Death Penalty, the Foundation for Human Rights Initiative, and Parliamentarians for Global Action, submitted a joint stakeholder report on Ugandas human rights obligations relating to the death penalty to the UN Human Rights Council for its November 2016 Universal Periodic Review of Uganda. Uganda has the greatest number of crimes eligible for the death penalty of any country in the East African region. International human rights standards limit the use of the death penalty to the most serious crimes, but Ugandan law allows the death penalty for crimes such as treason, aggravated robbery, and smuggling while armed with a deadly weapon. As of March 2016, there were 208 people on death row (197 men and 11 women), but the last execution was in 2005. Ugandan courts issued four death sentences in 2015. As a result of the landmark 2009 Kigula case, the death penalty is no longer mandatory for capital offenses. The ...
Paul. There is an ongoing debate within the Church, including moral theologians and Bishops, regarding the status of the acceptance or rejection of the death penalty. It is cases like those you ask about that provoke the debate.. We do know this:. Aborting a child is an intrinsic evil Capital punishment should be avoid whenever necessary and should be unwarranted in a civilized society, but that would mean that justice is consonant with the natural law in the culture where the death penalty is rarely used. That is not the case in a nation like ours that uses its laws to approve the direct killing of the innocent in situations like abortion and euthanasia.. Therefore in the USA at this time any ban on capital punishment is hypocritical because the law condones the direct killing of innocent people prior to birth. That is a double standard.. Finally the Church has not defined capital punishment as an intrinsic evil.. Judie Brown ...
The vaccination plan - for which health employees should have priority - was broken in San Andres de Giles, where at least 20 people were vaccinated irregularly, including two councilors from the Frente de Todos, that governs the municipality.. In the midst of the uproar among neighbors, the opposition bloc Juntos por el Cambio issued a statement to publicly denounce the situation and issue an energetic repudiation for the violation of existing protocols.. In turn, they announced that the vaccinated councilors were Laura Branchini and Mariana Cané, from the same political space as the mayor Carlos Puglielli, from whom they demanded an answer.. With total lack of respect for the residents of our city, making use of their political position, they arbitrated the necessary means tending to obtain personal benefit with the placement of the vaccine, they noted in the text and added: These events mourn society and who we represent. We believe that its time to stop using public office for ...

The second was a reference to the Hippocratic Oath: Counsel for the parents stated that the decision to offer the proposed experimental treatment would be consistent with the Hippocratic Oath. I discuss this - and my current view on the case - in an article for the British Medical Journal.. The third was the mention by the parents barrister of a bioethicist, whose article was included in the familys file of evidence to the Court.. The fourth was the decision to appoint a clinical ethicist to chair a Multidisciplinary Team meeting on Monday 17th July 2017.. It is no surprise, therefore, that ethicists have commented on the case. As the court is not expected to make a decision until 25th July, and as we enter a quiet season for the media, many more commentaries will follow.. I attended part of the hearing in the High Court last week. The room was packed with journalists, and the parties were well aware of this. At one point in the proceedings, one barrister interrupted another and suggested that ...

A ballot measure to repeal Californias death penalty and replace it with life in prison without parole has gained support in the last week and leads by 45 to 38 percent among likely voters in the final Field Poll before Tuesdays election. First vote in 34 yearsProp. 34 is Californians first vote on the death penalty since 1978, when a 71 percent majority approved expansion of a capital punishment law passed by state legislators the previous year. Since executions resumed in 1992, 13 prisoners have been put to death, while 726 condemned inmates remain housed in the nations largest Death Row. Statewide opinion polls continue to show support for the death penalty, but when the same voters are asked which punishment they consider appropriate for murder, slight majorities have preferred life without parole over death. Sponsors of Prop. 34 have stressed the severity of a life sentence with no hope of release and made the cost of the death penalty their leading issue - $130 million a year more than a

THE fight against controversial plans to add fluoride to Southamptons tap water is being taken to the top by one community leader.. Health chiefs have already voted in favour of fluoridation and are working with Southern Water to implement the scheme, but the campaign against the mass medication plans is still going strong.. Despite a public consultation in which 72 per cent of people living in the affected area voted against fluoridation, bosses from South Central Strategic Health Authority (SHA) approved the plans last month. It means 195,000 residents in Southampton, Totton and parts of Eastleigh will receive fluoridated water to improve dental health among children. Fluoridation is set to be implemented by the end of 2010.. David Harrison, pictured, Hampshire County Councillor for Totton South - where about 8,000 homes will be included in the fluoridation scheme, has lodged a formal complaint with the SHA.. ...

Presented to the Northern Symposium at Chester on 6th October 2001.. I would like to start with a little history to place homeopathy in context with the medical profession, then give a little theory, and end up with the how to use it section.. The basic principle of homeopathy is Similia Similibus Curentur - Let like be cured by like. Two great early medical writers, Hippocrates, of the Medical Oath fame (460-357BC) and Galen (130-200 AD) both mentioned Similia Similibus Curentur in their writings but both worked mainly on the Contraria Contrariis Curentur principle. That is they preferred to use a drug that had the opposite effect to the symptoms shown by the patient. Or to put it another way, they would give two of sand and one of cement to a patient with diarrhoea.. Paracelsus, 1493-1541, was the first recorded medical practitioner to suggest that the Similia principle was the most effective method of medicine, but he never developed it into a complete system of medicine. That honour was ...

A mothers failures are etched on Mark Anthony Solizs face. Its the damaged face of a child whose mother drank heavily, sniffed paint and used drugs while pregnant, the face of a youth who was largely abandoned. The face of a killer.. Now, with Soliz sitting on Texas Death Row awaiting an execution date, the long-ago failings of his mother could hold the key to sparing his life. Solizs appeal of his capital murder conviction in the death of a Godley grandmother has joined a growing list of cases nationwide seeking to exclude the death penalty for defendants with fetal alcohol syndrome, a form of brain damage caused by maternal alcohol abuse.. Experts say the death penalty should be off the table in such cases, just as the U.S. Supreme Court has abolished the death penalty for defendants with mental retardation. Prosecutors and victims advocates, however, say its a guise for going easy on killers who show no such mercy to their victims..... [I]n a groundbreaking decision in the Atkins case in ...
