Minnesota Court Frees Nurse Who Encouraged Suicides

Revelation 21:8 KJV “But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and fornicators, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.”

In Minnesota, if you want to coach someone through killing themselves, you’re now legally and Constitutionally protected to do it.

The Minnesota Supreme Court on Wednesday reverses the convictions of a former nurse who had been convicted under the state’s law that bans assisting suicide.   He had been convicted of encouraging and providing advice to a 32-year-old man and 18-year-old woman.

The sentence for William Melchert-Dinkel had been suspended pending his appeal.  His lawyers had argued that he had free speech rights to share methods and encouragement to those planning suicides and that it was impossible to prove his words were the deciding factor in the victims ending their lives.

The prosecution noted that Melchert-Dinkel sought out depressed people online for the sake of encouraging them into suicide.  He posed as a female nurse and then after showing compassion gave instructions on the best way to kill themselves.

Melchert-Dinkel admitted that he did it for the “thrill” and entered into fake suicide pacts with at least 5 people with whom he is sure ended their own lives with his encouragement.
