The Theater of the Absurd, Part II

Whoever said that life is stranger than fiction must have had things like the following in mind:

Item 1. - Convicted sex offenders are accused of killing two young girls in recent weeks. One of them has confessed to his crime. Because these vermin are considered extremely dangerous to society they are expected to register with law enforcement authorities after being released. Why are they are they released from prison in the first place?

Item 2. - Why is it that murderers condemned to death have numerous opportunities for judicial review of their cases on the chance that a mistake was made, but Terri Schiavo, who has never been convicted of a crime or hurt a soul, cannot have her case reviewed?
