Q: What's wrong with this picture?

A: The DA is is breaking the law. He is assisting in a suicide.

Yesterday in California a man tried to kill himself by parking his SUV on a railroad track. A train comes along, hits the SUV, and all hell broke lose. 11 people on the train died. Now, according to the NY Times, the D.A. said today that he would probably seek the death penalty for the suicidal man who left his S.U.V. on a track.

Here is the NY Times story.

The guy in the SUV gets his wish anyway. He gets to kill himself, albeit one step removed; this time with the help of the law enforcement establishment. Can't wait to see how Big Entertainment paraphrases this on Law and Order.
