This is Why We Shouldn’t be Executioners
But he is an editor of the Thing That Used To Be National Review!
“The state has the legitimate authority to execute criminals, but it should refrain if it has other means of protecting people from them. Our government almost always does.”
See I agree with that, but I think I might have been deemed as “too pro-execution” here. Because I do think “almost always” is different than “always.” I support a very limited use of execution, but I think the ability of the government or psychology to rehabilitate or neutralize individuals with violent personality disorders is not yet absolute.
