Jonathan Newton, Tacoma, Washington, defense attorney, commenting in an
episode of the crime reality-show, Snapped:

"Sitting in a bare room with two cops _hoovering_ over you - yeah, that can
be felt as coercive."

All say, "How hard it is that we have to die!"---a strange complaint to
come from the mouths of people who have had to live.
