Justice and Equality



Let me now turn back to a moral aspect of the death penalty that is connected with the constitutional one just discussed. I wish to argue that even if there were discrimination against some groups, and even if discrimination were unavoidably connected with the death penalty rather than with its distribution—both these assumptions are contrary to fact—the death penalty still should not be abolished. Those who argue otherwise confuse justice and equality.
