Albert Camus Centenary

Camus by Henri Cartier-Bresson, 1950

Capital punishment is the most premeditated of murders, 
to which no criminal’s deed, however calculated, can be compared. For there to be an equivalency, the death penalty would have to punish a criminal who had warned his victim 
of the date on which he would inflict a horrible death on him and who, from that moment onward, had confined him at his mercy for months. 
Such a monster is not to be encountered in private life.
