Can one file a criminal complaint against a governor, and/or the executioner, for taking the life of an imprisoned human?
“Thou shalt not kill.”
If I think about it I feel it a bit strange that ‘we’ can end the life of someone (as a penalty) who has ended the life of someone.
Can one prosecute a (legal) person (who is responsible for the death of the punished person), and what are the chances that that person could be convicted?
Has it, to your knowledge, ever been tried?
