Los Angeles – A California district attorney announced today that he will seek the death penalty for a suicidal man who drove his vehicle onto the railroad tracks in an attempt to kill himself, but instead caused a catastrophic passenger train crash.

Said the D.A., “I know that the death penalty is a harsh punishment, but we need to put these people to death in order to deter other suicidal people from trying to kill themselves in the future.”

Sister Helen Prejean, a vocal death penalty opponent and author of the book “Dead Man Walking,” responded to the news by telling reporters, “Yeah, we might need to fry this one.”
