Too Poor to Die

Republic of T has a rather disturbing post up concerning the death of Tyrone Garner, one of the plaintiffs in Lawrence v. Texas, which overturned state laws criminalizing same-sex activity.

Although Garner passed away on September 11, the family still does not have the financial means to have him buried. Terrance makes an interesting point:

"Thus, the state that sought to control his body while he was living may end up controlling it in his death. "
