You know what is sad this is fictional, but here in Oregon a few of years back or so. There was a man who had raped and murder a child and he happened to be an illegal immigrant and he happen to be from Mexico, he was caught and sent to prison. Well while he was in prision, he got cancer and desperately need a bone marrow transplant. You know what he got it, the state paid for it. However around this same time there was a young girl, I think her name was Casey. Who was also in need of a bone marrow transplant and the community had to rally up a fund raiser for her to get her transplant. The cost was over $250,000 dollars for the surgery alone.Â What does this tell you.Â Do you see what is wrong with this picture?
