Ed Koch Is Still Right

Ed Koch, once the charismatic mayor of New York City, recently died.  In 1985, he wrote an essay in the liberal magazine The New Republic arguing in favor of the death penalty, and taking on the major opposing arguments.

Thanks to Prof. Doug Berman at Sentencing Law & Policy for reminding us of Koch's work, which rings as true today as it did a generation ago.  A reprint of Koch's piece is here.
