Ginsburg 'would go back' to when death penalty was outlawed


Speaking at the University of California Hastings College of Law, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg said last Thursday that she won't taken an open stance on the death penalty. But then she sort of did.

“I would have no voice in what is going on. I would not be able to make things perhaps a little bit better," Ginsburg said, explaining why she hasn't declared whether she believes the death penalty to be constitutional in all cases.

Then, when asked what she would like to accomplish before she leaves the bench, she said, "I probably would go back to the day when the Supreme Court said that the death penalty cannot be administered with an even hand."

Any lawyers out there?
