Harry S Truman on Crime

 


Opposes capital punishment

"I've never really believed in capital punishment. I commuted the sentence of the fellow who was trying to shoot me to life imprisonment. That's the best example I can give you."
Source: The Wit & Wisdom of Harry Truman, by Ralph Keyes, p. 21 , Jan 15, 1953
