It’s a Deterrent, It’s a Deterrent Not.

BTK killer Dennis Rader has gone to prison for life. He won’t be executed because Kansas did not have the death penalty when he committed the murders:

“Rader could not face the death penalty because Kansas did not reinstate capital punishment until 1994, three years after his last killing.”

If Rader is telling the truth, did the institution of the death penalty deter him from claiming more victims? Or did he remain undeterred and only confess to killings he committed during the non-death penalty period?

Either way, he's still the lowest form of life in the universe.
