    No doubt this will be a controversial opinion, but why was this allowed to happen? He should have been under watch to prevent him from harming himself.
    The morality of abortion is not a religious belief, any more than the morality of slavery, apartheid, rape, larceny, murder or arson is a religious belief. These are norms of the natural law of mankind and can be legislated even in a completely religionless society.

    Probably the same way that prison murders happen. I doubt that every prisoner is watched in their cell, every minute of every day.

    This was a very high profile prisoner.

    The article says he wasn't under formal suicide watch, but they checked on him every thirty minutes. Just how hard should we try to prevent a monster from killing himself?

    Why should he receive special treatment just because he is high profile?
