“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.”
