What is the probability of recovery from "cryonic suspension"? I'd suggest that it is only marginally better than for cadavars, in otherwords slight to non-existent. Why be squeamish and call it cryonic suspension when it is effectively a death sentence? Why not just harvest executees for parts, instead of using an expensive embalming procedure?

But this suggestion logically leads to other thoughts.

If accidental execution of the innocent is acceptable in order to prevent harm to other individuals, then we have to ask ourselves whether, seeing that we can detect those statistically likely to engage in such behaviour (statistically based on family environment and poverty; and using genetic markers (refer The God Module), should we not simply execute such people as well, as a preventive measure. After all, this would be a really proactive step saving far more people than a purely reactive solution...

Of course, this might result in the appearance of massive racial bias, but what the hell, it is for the good of society, is it not?

Kind Regards
