New law passed to block suicide onstage
The St. Petersburg city council passed a law Monday designed to scuttle a rock group’s plans to feature an onstage suicide.
The hard-rock band Hell on Earth had said that a suicide by a terminally ill person would take place during a concert Saturday to raise awareness of right-to-die issues
In response, the city council met Monday morning to unanimously approve an emergency ordinance making it illegal to conduct a suicide for commercial or entertainment purposes.
What a bunch of grumps.
