Fiala on Ethics: What do we want when it comes to war or the death penalty?

Federal judge Cormac Carney recently ruled that California's dysfunctional death penalty is cruel and unusual because those who are sentenced to death are rarely executed. Since 1978 only 13 people have been executed in California, while more than 900 people have been sentenced to death. The average time spent on death row is 25 years. Execution in California is a matter of luck, not justice.
