Grant that those who kill illegally, shall pay the penalty
with their lives. If they do not pay thus, the law enforcing
machinery needs repair or it should be junked altogether and
new machinery installed. ; . -
: But to offer a premium of dollars for killing even robbers
may be stimulus to hair-brained, nervous and highly imagin
ative men with or without definite official authority to shoot
to kill when human life is not in immediate danger. It may
increase the present altogether too free use of the gun in law
enforcement. The use of the gun when under full authority
of the law requires poise, and rare judgment. ' " ;
; Such offer through placard publicity, though made witk
good intent, places human life on the, bargain counter. It 13

opinion if not condemned by law. .
