A few years back…
A bus system in England was suffering from lack of punctuality. They were constantly late picking up passengers so a directive from on high was issued: Punctuality was Goal #1. The bus drivers complied. They raced from stop to stop and kept on schedule by not stopping to pick up passengers. A classic example of “Man was made for the law, not the law for man” thinking.
Here’s another example: prosecutors saying that clearly innocent people should be executed if their appeals run out. The only difference is: the bus drivers didn’t kill anybody whereas these prosecutors want to kill innocent people. In my country, that’s called “murder”. But in the Land of the Lawyers of the Culture of Death it’s called “Legal”.
Another fun challenge for you Culture of Death Penalty folks to try to justify.
