Re your comment below:

". . . it's hard to understand how [Patrick] might be encouraged by the history of capital punishment. Not much evidence of a total solution there."

Actually, the best evidence available, based on research conducted by OPPONENTS of capital punishment, is that every murderer who's executed prevents, on the average at least six murders, and the sooner after conviction the execution takes place, the more murders are deterred.

This was exactly the opposite of what the researchers hoped to prove.
