Justice and Despair

February 1975
National Review;2/14/1975, Vol. 27 Issue 5, p148
This article presents information on the bombing of Fraunces Tavern Museum in New York City by a Puerto Rican nationalist group. It is reported that the clues in the case are few, but even if they were plentiful one would still despair. The chances of catching the bombers are slim. It is stated that execution is the obviously appropriate punishment for a crime so heinous, premeditated, cold-blooded, subversive and terroristic, not because capital punishment deters, but because sense of justice cries out for it. Edward Levi, the Attorney General designate, favors the death penalty for certain crimes, and even said so in public.
