Use the Garland article to answer the following prompt:
“As a result of these struggles, the death penalty has been cured of its more egregious defects and cruelties. It has been domesticated, bureaucratized, sanitized, and, above all, legalized. And yet it has not been abolished” (p. 458). Do you think capital punishment on a case by case basis is fair? Do you agree with Garland that CP should be abolished in the US? Why?
What are the similarities and differences between the Henry Smith lynching example, and Malinowski’s description of the Trobriand Islander’s incest taboo? Do you think public executions give local communities retribution or revenge? Why or why not?
