Founders' Daily Quote: 4 Sept 08

"To prevent crimes, is the noblest end and aim of criminal jurisprudence. To punish them, is one of the means necessary for the accomplishment of this noble end and aim."

--James Wilson (Of the Study of the Law in the United States, Circa 1790); Reference: The Works of James Wilson, McCloskey, ed., vol. 1 (441-43) [Sheehan (5:14)]
