Alfie Evans' Father: "If Alfie Dies, I'll Sue Everyone for Murder"
Alfie Evans was removed from life support and, because the UK's health system is made up of what I can only conclude are sadistic torturers and those who stand by and do nothing, basic human necessities like food and water. Alfie Evans is still alive. Despite the best hopes of the UK court system, who probably wanted the child to perish. To protect the precious reputation of the NHS. Not even murderers and convicted terrorists are treated this inhumanely. Finally, the "doctors" at the "hospital" are giving the poor kid food and water. But now Alfie Evan's father, who's witnessed how his innocent son is being treated, is threatening to charge everyone with murder should his son die. I say, do it.
NEW: The court has just heard that Alfie's dad Tom Evans started private prosecution to have three doctors charged… https://t.co/lfI1zlWjho— Alan Jenkins (@Alan Jenkins)1524665351.0
“But if my son dies now, I will instruct lawyers to start private prosecution of every single person who helps to make that happen,” he said.
“You say that to withdraw life support from a sick child is a humane medical act - I say it is murder. You say that using force to prevent me from trying to save his life is no more than upholding the law - I say it is murder. You say you are acting in the best interests of the child. Perhaps King Herod used that phrase, too,” he continued.
“I will not allow you to kill my son just because a bunch of smug lawyers in London has concluded this would be good for him. If you make my son die tomorrow, you will face justice from a jury of your twelve countrymen in this world, and a terrible judgement of God in the world to come,” the toddler’s father added.
I'm not a British citizen (thank God) or a lawyer, but from what I've seen of this case, if this isn't a conspiracy to kill a small child, I don't know what is. From the doctors up to the UK judge to sycophantic Brits who mindlessly nod their heads in agreement, that yes, the government gets to play God in deciding who lives and who dies, Alfie's case exemplifies human cruelty.
The Italian government has already sent representatives and a medical helicopter to take Alfie to their country to try to save him or extend his life. But of course, if the UK were to allow that, and Alfie got better, how terrible would that make the UK look? So the British government likely wanted to force Alfie to die, quickly, to save face for their precious NHS and God-like authority.
If Alfie dies now, I'm with his father. Sue them. Sue as many doctors, judges, and authorities as you can. It's the least these monsters deserve.
