Calif. nurse on death row dies of natural causes

Calif. nurse on death row dies of natural causes

SAN QUENTIN STATE PRISON, Calif. A former nurse sentenced to death for the killing of 12 patients at two California hospitals in 1981 has died of natural causes.

Officials at San Quentin State Prison say Robert Rubane Diaz died Wednesday morning in a hospital.

The 72-year-old Diaz had been on death row since June 1984.

He was sentenced to death after being convicted of killing 12 patients at two Riverside County hospitals by giving them lethal levels of a heart medication. The patients were between the ages of 52 and 95.

1. I remember this guy. I was a little kid, but I grew up near San Quentin.
Lots of my friends growing up had parents who worked there.

5. "Right to Life"ers are against abortion, which is not a part of this man's conviction.
And, if they are in the minute fraction of the "Right to Life"ers who truly value ALL life, i think they would be glad he was not executed.

9. Sad that you can't/won't grasp that RTLers are focused on abortion
and the people this guy murdered were 40 to 50 years old. Not exactly fetuses.

Now if you had any idea what you were talking about, you would have said the pro-death- penalty folks must be pissed that he died.

11. Covering your shame with false bravado, I see.
None so blind, etc.

Or are you trying to accomplish anything other than making your self look foolish?

14. Yes. I guess I am silly replying to someone who cannot add
anything to the discussion.

But I do feel sorry for you.

Bye bye.

16. Sorry. Couldn't let that personal attack go unanswered:
I was not defending, nor did I "paint in the most very narrow and most favorable terms possible" either the RTLers nor the pro-death penalty crowd. I merely pointed out that you referenced the wrong group in your post #2. It was then that you began your childish series of LOLs" instead of acting like an adult and replying to what I wrote. I didn't realize that you were looking at the RTLers through a tunnel filled with such misinformation. For you to think that I was defending them speaks poorly of your ability to comprehend the written word. Maybe you could have shared your knowledge of these "alliances" the RTLers have with all the advocates of the horrors you listed and enlightened me. But no. You had to get all snarky and cute. What are the particulars of these "alliances". Can you specify any of them, or will you just come back with another LOL or some other snide comment?
