14. Sounds like she was nuts at the time
And isn't now. Also her statements were of her own admission, at the time. She was nuts enough to possibly make up that she even said them.

She's dying and she's no threat and it's not a very satisfying revenge at this point. This will happen to every life inmate. She's not getting any benefit from being let out this isn't minimal.

Everyone who sees revenge taking place here is lucky she didn't get the gas chamber; she'd have gone with less suffering in that. What is a worse way to go than cancer? There's plenty of punishment in that - all of which she could have avoided had she been executed. And none of which she can avoid by being in jail or out.
