For those with an interest in SF, Larry Niven's stories about
'harvesting' body parts from condemned criminals sprang immediately to
mind when I read the original post. Many of the stories feature a
policeman ('Gil the Arm') fighting organleggers - criminals who capture,
kill and then offer for resale body parts, but the most chilling aspect
is the ratcheting up of crimes that warrant the death penalty so as to
increase the available body parts.
