Death death death death death

Gelman is ok with a cost-benefit analysis of the death penalty.  I am concerned that the analysis is skewed because by the biases of  policy makers and researchers.

is that you can only accept capital punishment if you’re willing to have innocent people executed every now and then. And, the more effective you want the death penalty to be, the more innocents you have to execute.
