Is It Morality Or An Inability To Deal With The Problem?

According to the Inter Press Service, "Since late 2001, more than 300 sick inmates [in the final stages of AIDS] have been freed by President Levy Mwanawasa on compassionate grounds."

On one hand, it seems nice that dying prisoners can spend their final days with their families. On the other hand, you can't help but think that Government is simply washing their hands of the whole mess.
