Punishment Not Feared
Certainty of punishment, not fear
of it, is the proper deterrent to,
crime, said Prof. John F. Shepard,
of the psychology department, in,
discussing the capital punishment
bill yesterday in an interview.
States which punish murderers
by death, in general, convict few
such criminals, said Professor Shep-
ard. Either they are not caught, ne
said, or they win freedom through
delays. Most of those eventually
convicted are not confirmed crimi-
nals, but persons who have com-
mitted only one crime, and that to
escape a particular unbearable cir-
cumstance, he asserted.
The gangster is seldom caught,
Professor Shepard pointed out, be-;
cause he knows his business andI
does not leave evidence. The Mich-
igan bill was passed with the par-a
ticular object of hitting at this type
of professional criminal, he contin-
ued, but previous experience has
shown that capital punishment is
"It is better that the life sen-
tence be kept for murderers, be-
cause of the posibility of reforming
the single offender, and also be-
cause of the danger of a mistake,
which would prove irremediable un-
der the suggested change," he said.
