Is the death penalty worth the high economic cost?
Asked at Dillons, 3000 W. Sixth St. on January 19, 2003
“In different cases, yes. It depends on what the crime was.”
“No. I don’t think the death penalty is a deterrent to crime.”
“No, because I think there’s nothing to be gained by another death. I guess it’s more the principle than the economics.”
“The death penalty isn’t about deterrence, it isn’t about economic costs, it’s about justice.”
