About this Quote

He is recommending that even with the most comprehensive legal procedures and proof, there is always a risk of an innocent individual being sentenced to death. This declaration highlights the flaws and prospective injustices within the justice system, and raises questions about the morality and effectiveness of capital punishment. Simon's words serve as a pointer that the use of the death sentence is a complex and questionable issue that needs careful consideration and assessment.
