Albert Pierrepoint
All the men and women whom I have faced at that final moment, convince me that in what I have done, I have not prevented a single murder.
Pierrepoint quotes
The trouble with the death penalty has always been that nobody wanted it for everybody, but everybody differed about who should get off.
I have come to the conclusion that executions solve nothing, and are only an antiquated relic of a primitive desire for revenge which takes the easy way and hands over the responsibility for revenge to other people.
