At least Claus von Bulow got it right

Come on, people. Insulin may very well be "one of the most effective murder weapons a hospital could offer," but only if the victim is unconscious during the injection! A syringe-stabbing during a vicious fight to the death is NOT going to be effective:
But now he had another problem to deal with--the man swung his right arm around behind him, jabbing the injector pen at Carver like a deadly snake, with insulin as its venom.
Don't they know that a lethal dose of insulin would take a number of seconds to inject into the skin, that those pens are slow as hell? Or that it would take something like twenty minutes for the insulin to have any real effect?? The dude could just pop an IV of glucose solution after he offed the baddy - it's not virulent, James Bondian-poison for chrissakes!!

Don't authors do research?! Oy vey.

  1. i like the idea of injecting someone with a big ol' batch of insulin and then being like "you better promise not to eat any cookies!!!"
