According to NBC News, 68 year old John Wise, in order for him to not be imprisoned in Ohio prison, will have to plea for an insanity moment when he shot his suffering wife of 65. He did it out of love, claimed writer Jeff Black of NBC News.

The situation was that his wife was suffering and he wanted to get her out of her suffering so he shot her, but she did not die until the next day—is what I can conclude from the article.

If I were him, I would have not pleaded insanity. What I am getting is that he really knew what he was doing. He wanted her to end her suffering so he chose the gun. What he did, to me, is the same as someone who would pull the plug for a loved one who is in a vegetable state. If pulling the plug is legal and can considered ethical, then why is Mr. Wise charged for trying to ease his wife pain? Is this what would be called a double standard situation?

Granted, I don’t know much about the situation. I don’t know if she could have been cured or not with the illness she had, but I think it must have been the only realistic choice for him to have done that, because if he is a good husband like the article has claimed, then her state of living/level of suffering must have been really bad. I mean, it is not every day that a man would just go kill his wife to put her out of her misery. It was a tough choice because she was the one he loves and not just some stranger or an animal. I mean, if my cat is suffering, I would pull the trigger on him too.  

If it were you and you are in that situation, I wonder what would you choose to do?
