It is the crime not the scaffold which is the disgrace.
We are often deterred from crime by the disgrace of others.
The law which attempts a man's life [capital punishment] is impractical, unjust, inadmissible. It has never repressed crimeâ€”for a second crime is every day committed at the foot of the scaffold.
Sade, Donatien de
Capital punishment would be more effective as a preventive measure if it were administered prior to the crime.
Punishment is the last and the least effective instrument in the hands of the legislator for the prevention of crime.
One is absolutely sickened, not by the crimes that the wicked have committed, but by the punishments that the good have inflicted; and a community is infinitely more brutalized by the habitual employment of punishment than it is by the occasional occurrence of crime.
I should be very willing to redress men wrongs, and rather check than punish crimes, had not Cervantes, in that all too true tale of Quixote, shown how all such efforts fail.
Whenever a human being, through the commission of a crime, has become exiled from good, he needs to be reintegrated with it through suffering. The suffering should be inflicted with the aim of bringing the soul to recognize freely some day that its infliction was just.
Death rather than disgrace.
One may survive distress, but not disgrace.
