Next on the agenda: THE DEATH PENALTY

By Gilbert Creutzberg


Justices Breyer and Ginsburg appear close to announcing that the court will soon rule whether the death penalty is unconstitutional. Of course, much will depend on how one interprets those terms of the Eighth Amendment, “cruel and unusual punishment.”

As a person born in The Netherlands, I’m proud that my country was one of the earliest, in 1870, to put an end to the death penalty. I say, “my country,” because as much as I love the United States of America, as a naturalized citizen, I feel embarrassed that the death penalty still persists in this beautiful land. All the nations of Europe have disallowed the death penalty, calling it “cruel and inhumane.” The only one unwilling to sign, so far, with the European Union, has been Turkey.

I’m rather surprised by Justice Scalia’s comment of “gobbledygook” in his debate with Justice Breyer, which showed no appreciation by a learned scholar for another in a matter just as important as permitting the Confederate flag, that infamous relic of slavery of our fellow human beings, to stay on official buildings and also on cars, licensed by states of the USA.

The death penalty does not serve as deterrence, it does no equal justice, since statistics show beyond doubt that it is discriminatory. Yet, the costs are staggering.

Justice Scalia has only cynical mockery for his Supreme Court colleague. That is a shame.
