Tripoli Six Sentenced To Death

When looking for scapegoats, is it just human nature to go after workers first? Today, six health care workers - five Bulgarian nurses and a Palestinian doctor -- were convicted of infecting over 400 Libyan children with HIV, despite scientific evidence that the children were infected before the health care workers arrived.

I'll leave it to Revere at Effect Measure to express the disgust we all feel.
Science and justice have met vengence and science and justice have lost. It is a lesson that goes beyond Libya, but for now it is Libya that stands accused.
