Question 9 ~ Killing

Post by Scott » September 12th, 2016, 4:44 pm

This is a discussion question for the June 2016 Book of the Month, Justice by Scott Hughes.


Question 9 ~ Killing

Prosecutor Joseph Bronson is repeatedly described as trying to “kill” Marcus Malley. However, he does this so-called “killing” by using his veteran skills as a prosecutor to get Marcus convicted and legally sentenced to death. How does Joseph “killing” Marcus compare and contrast to a husband killing his spouse? Is one just and the other not? Why or why not?
