Mass. Executions? Even Massachusetts is considering bringing back the death penalty. I guess it says something that a state with among the most stringent gun laws and a ban on capital punishment still suffers from murders and other crimes. It shows that we still are a long way from understanding the root cause of crime. And until we do, we're going to have to deal with it the only way we know how.

Don't get me wrong. I'm all for rehabilitation. But we have no idea how to effectively rehabilitate anyone reliably. Until we do, we still have to punish murderers and other criminals.
