Death sentence

In Massachusetts, a man named William Coutris is dying. He’s only 41, and he has a terminal case of a very rare cancer. He only has one last request — to return to his parents’ home, where he can spend his last days with his loved ones. But a judge has told him no.

Two years ago, Mr. Coutris raped a 15-year-old boy. He was convicted and sent to prison for five to seven years. Shortly thereafter, he was diagnosed with Poorly Differentiated Carcinoma, a very rare and little-understood disease. It quickly ravaged his body, and doctors agree he has only months to live, regardless of where he stays.

Coutris sought “compassionate release,” but Massachusetts has no such law. And I’m glad.

Coutris committed one of the most heinous acts a person can commit, and I feel absolutely no sympathy for him. If he didn’t want to spend his remaining days behind bars, then perhaps he shouldn’t have assaulted that child.

It was his own choices and actions that put him behind bars, and there he should remain.
