A Quote by Thurgood Marshall on belief, concern, danger, defense, failure, guilt, insanity, and punishment

[Jurors who are opposed to capital punishment are] more likely to believe that a defendant's failure to testify is indicative of his guilt, more hostile to the insanity defense, more mistrustful of defense attorneys and less concerned about the danger of erroneous convictions.

Thurgood Marshall (1908 - 1993)
