We Spoke To Death Row Inmate Scott Academic Pressure Pushing S. Korean 2 days ago   02:46

Scott Dozier was ready to die. Not only did the Nevada death row inmate give up appealing his 2007 death sentence for the murder of 22-year-old Jeremiah Miller, but Dozier had no reservations about the possibility of becoming the first person to be executed in the United States with the opioid fentanyl.

Dozier’s circumstances made him one of the country’s best-known inhabitants of death row, as more and more pharmaceutical companies refuse to let states use their products in lethal injections and force them to scramble for substitutes, like fentanyl. But this weekend, Dozier apparently decided he was done waiting for Nevada to kill him: Prison officials found him hanging from a bed sheet, tied to an air vent in his solo cell on Saturday. They pronounced him dead at 4:35 p.m.

It is harder to live with the crime you've done, than die. Every day for the rest of your life you have to face what you've done. Day in and day out for years and years to come. In your little cell, you will have no escape. But if you're dead, you're dead. Just is no more. Black, gone, part of history.
If you have a good, fullfilling life a premature death can be seen as cruel. All those years of happy life that will never be. But if you are going to live in a small box, forever suffering for what you've done, death can be a release.

Pretty sad. I understand that one has to deal with the consequences of their choices, but I also believe in breaks and second chances. Not that that I did anything nearly as horrible as Scott here but God knows had it not been for second chances, I would have been either dead or in some loony bin locked up and forgotten about. RIP..
Darth Sidious
The said realization that their are so many here that can convinced by a poetic tone. There is a reason that the Devil is portrayed by beauty, music, and "certainty". This dude literally wanted his own will to be served. Clearly obvious by his willingness to control a situation even at the end. He committed suicide bc he finally realized he had no more power. No more influence, no more narcissistic avenues to pleasure himself with.
Samara Weaving
The Reporter / Interviewer was very emotional throughout.
Nick R
He set this all up so perfect so his family get a big ass settlement.

Did he really kill himself? From all accounts, the suicide watch was very thorough.
Zoleka Mncwabe

James Long
I’m glad this animal killed himself
Richard Ruiz
All he had to do is disrespect another inmate and they would have ended his life pretty quick
Vanessa bunnie
he died without Jesus
Samir Al-hafzi Said Mohammad Abou
I think that someone might have killed him!! Just coz they couldn't get the right drugs
Lisa Sam
Does anyone know why he killled the 2 people, did anyone stop to think that his victims may have been just as bad as he was. Don't talk smack if you don't know the facts.
VICE you interview tons of "death-row" inmates yet they appeal and win a few more years. You interviewed a guy a day before his so-called execution date yet he was acquitted right away. What a joke!
gary sillery

Academic Pressure Pushing S. Korean We Spoke To Death Row Inmate Scott 2 days ago   25:20

South Korea is home to a thriving $20 billion private education industry. But 15 hour school days and academic pressure on students are beginning to take its toll, and the authorities are finally taking notice.

"You get compared and because everyone does so well I feel pressured to do better. There's a lot of psychological pressure", says one Korean student. Here, making it to the top has become a national obsession. Schools stay open until 11pm, whilst half of teenagers report suicidal thoughts, mostly blaming school pressure. 19-year-old Jae-woo describes the stresses that accompany study for exams: "There's no me... I can't do things I like. When I'm prepping for exams, who I am just gets lost". Feeding off the system are entrepreneurs like Cha Gil-yong, a celebrity teacher who dons wigs and wacky costumes in online lectures. At any one time 300,000 students are logged into his website. "I try to entertain them and keep them from nodding off by wearing these wigs. Students really enjoy it", he says. Now, authorities are finally realising that the price of success may be too great, and are sending out patrols to enforce school closing times. Yet top performing students are even beginning to have plastic surgery in order to improve their job prospects. In a country where failure is not an option, how far will students go for success?
