In trying to understand, one wonders if the backers of "an eye for an eye" were raised by parents who said. "I'll teach you to hit your little brother'1 wham! Or perhaps told lirtle brother to bite back if he was too small hit hard. Do really want the government to return to the old practice of showing the public it is wrong to kill, by veiling again? can be accomplished by it? Hanging saves money, it is said, but Joes ii?

Besides, hanging degrades the one who it and these who authorize it. since tfae. ano ecualiy resrvnsi- ble. Hanging is also justified by claiming "protection for society, but government orders to kill, either in war or for punishment 01 an individual, in turn justi- fies killing. Yes. we ere all afraid these days with so many distorted personalities threat- ening us. So let's do aw-ay with criminals to make us feel safer, it is said, in case they want to kill or rape again. But what if they don't, and someone else does, for the first time? Is it to really feel safe with would-be murderers around? Remember the calculating mur- derer never expects to get caught, but plans to benefit by what he has done. The recipe for peace of mind C3me to us centuries ago.
