The Random Horror of the Death Penalty

The powerful title of this excellent New York Times editorial foreshadows what I believe is one of the best, most important articles about capital punishment I've read in some time:

The Supreme Court has not banned capital punishment, as it should, but it has long held that the death penalty is unconstitutional if randomly imposed on a handful of people. An important new study based on capital cases in Connecticut provides powerful evidence that death sentences are haphazardly meted out, with virtually no connection to the heinousness of the crime.
