Weitzel didn't kill anyone
Tuesday, August 07, 2001 I am very concerned about what is happening in Davis County with Dr. Weitzel. It seems like he is being railroaded with this murder business. He didn't kill anyone. All of the people who are at issue were at death's door already. The doses of morphine he used were reasonable, and none of his patients died from that, they died of old-age problems. It's clear to any thinking person that the prosecutors made a huge mistake. It's too bad they wouldn't admit that a long time ago when Dr. Fine told them that they had no case. I believe Mr. Wilson should stop this. I can't imagine that he can do any good, criminalizing what amounts to compassionate and appropriate medical care. I live in a senior citizens housing center, and I've heard from others here of how their doctors aren't willing to give them enough pain medicine for fear that it will happen to them next.
