There is no such thing as a mercy killing

Anywhere it calls a murder a mercy killing, the reality is this: a hate crime. Calling a hate crime a mercy killing gives way to much sympathy to the killer, and devalues the victim. It also often affects the verdict and gives the murderer a break, while reinforcing the idea that the group of people the victim is from is inherently worth less. I am mostly referring to in cases of parents or caregivers murdering a disabled person,but other cases may be discussed....
