Bitter Irony of the Week

A man recently cleared of guilt and released from Death Row was hit by a truck and killed this week.
  • "He always wanted to talk about his new life and what he would do once he got his clemency money," his attorney, Kathleen Zellner, said after learning of Young's death. "He wanted to know if I would help him get a red brick house. He certainly didn't deserve any of this."
Kind of makes you think the dude was safer in the clink. I bet you his family is pissed off at how hard they had fought to save him. At least he would have lived longer had he stayed in there.

I rank this the second most ironic way to die. The first is, of course, retiring from the police force and getting killed on your last day.
