Talk about a conundrum for the doctors and medical staff, saving a man's life, with the realization that he will more than likely face the death penalty after his trial.

They have their oath to uphold, yet it must be a moral dilemma for some as well!

I have zero sympathy for this bastard who had no problem burning several people to death because his pride was wounded.

I don’t think the doctors and nurses treating the arson suspect are facing any moral dilemma. There’s a person suffering from life-threatening burns right in front of their eyes and they’re just doing what they can to save his life.

autogenous skin? Good. He doesnt deserve donated skin. In fact, just keep him alive but make sure it hurts.

The most important thing, above all, is that he face justice in a court of law, before victims and relatives of victims. The doctors are working towards that end.

Besides the doctors' "duty" to treat this guy, obviously they are hoping to learn something from his treatment. In that way at least something good can come out of such a monstrous deed. It's still hard to believe someone can do what he did.

No need for the death penalty – just life imprisonment in a mirrored cell.

A true living hell. His only hope is to repent.

Using his body for testing out new medical procedure is a good idea, if it's successful we'll get useful medical data that will help others, and if it fails not so many people will be too broken up about it.

Who will pay for it?

Unfortunate that ambulance reached the scene in time to save him, he should have been the last one in the queue. 38 other innocent victims weren't so lucky.

Words fail. Life can be so grotesque and cruel. Praying that something good will have been learnt.

Who will pay for it?

In the end, us the taxpayers, and while some may find it disgusting, he has the right to a trial as well.

I'm sorry....why is this news again?

burn victims suffer horribly let him rot

He is a horrible horrible man, not worthy of any sympathy or care at all. His crime will stand for all time as one of the worst in modern times. I am sure the doctors did what they could for him but they were morally right to put the victims ahead of the criminal who tried to kill them.

Meh, find some old t-shirts or table cloths and wrap him up. He'll be as good as new. Or not.

-1 ( +0 / -1 )

He’s a waste of skin.

0 ( +0 / -0 )

Who is paying for this treatment? The only treatment he needs is to be eaten by a pack of wild boar!

Does the new skin still make him look think skinned and wrinkly (typical lifetime burn look) or will he look as he did before?
