The handwritten confession of a Canadian killer nurse has been released as part of a public inquiry into long-term care homes for seniors.
The inquiry was launched by the province of Ontario following Elizabeth Wettlaufer’s conviction on eight counts of first degree murder.
Wettlaufer was arrested in October 2016 for a string of deaths in two nursing homes spanning several years.
Her victims were between the ages of 75 and 96 and were killed over 2007-14.
She was caught confessing her crimes to doctors after checking herself in for emergency psychiatric care.
In her confession, scrawled over four pages in sloppy cursive handwriting, Wettlaufer describes feeling deep anger at her victims, whom she injected with fatal doses of insulin.-BBC

If the nurses had been 'paid to kill', like how the spycops had been 'paid to lie', I'd probably react by saying:
"Yikes – these nurses and everyone who sanctioned them needs to go to prison"
As opposed to supporting the killer nurses' friends harassing Wetherspoons' employees https://t.co/Bgf8Yuv88b
