I wish we could [have done] something to stop it, but by the time it happened it was too late to stop it. Given these circumstances, the sons' own testimony that they were surprised by the killings, and did not expect them to occur, appears more plausible than the Court's speculation that they "subjectively appreciated that their activities were likely to result in the taking of innocent life."

The petitioners' own personal involvement in the crimes was not minor, but rather, as specifically found by the trial court, "substantial." 13-454(A) (Supp.1973) (repealed 1978).

Enmund, supra, 458 U.S., at 798, 102 S.Ct., at 3377, citing Gregg v. Georgia, 428 U.S. 153, 183, 96 S.Ct. We hold that the Arizona Supreme Court applied an erroneous standard in making the findings required by Enmund v. Florida, 458 U.S. 782, 102 S.Ct. On the other hand, even after Enmund, only 11 States authorizing capital punishment forbid imposition of the death penalty even though the defendant's participation in the felony murder is major and the likelihood of killing is so substantial as to raise an inference of extreme recklessness.10 This substantial and recent legislative authorization of the death penalty for the crime of felony murder regardless of the absence of a finding of an intent to kill powerfully suggests that our society does not reject the death penalty as grossly excessive under these circumstances, Gregg v. Georgia, 428 U.S., at 179-181, 96 S.Ct., at 2928-2929 (opinion of Stewart, POWELL, and STEVENS, JJ. App. 13-703(G)(3) (1978 and Supp.1986); Colo.Rev.Stat. In my opinion this very fact had a severe influence upon the personality structure of these youngsters. might be used . Fitzjames Stephen put the case of a man who 'sees a boy sitting on a bridge over a deep river and, out of mere wanton barbarity, pushes him into it and so drowns him.' Enmund held that when "intent to kill" results in its logical though not inevitable consequence the taking of human lifethe Eighth Amendment permits the State to exact the death penalty after a careful weighing of the aggravating and mitigating circumstances. Each of petitioners' actions was perfectly consistent with, and indeed necessary to, the felony of stealing a car in order to continue the flight from prison. Vt.Stat.Ann., Tit. Although we state these two requirements separately, they often overlap. On the other hand, some nonintentional murderers may be among the most dangerous and inhumane of allthe person who tortures another not caring whether the victim lives or dies, or the robber who shoots someone in the course of the robbery, utterly indifferent to the fact that the desire to rob may have the unintended consequence of killing the victim as well as taking the victim's property. It therefore remains open to the state courts to consider whether Arizona's aggravating factors were interpreted and applied so broadly as to violate the Constitution. On this ground alone, I would dissent. No. See ante, at 143-145. We now take up the task of determining whether the Eighth Amendment proportionality requirement bars the death penalty under these circumstances. 77, 84, 656 S.W.2d 684, 687 (1983) ("There was direct evidence from more than one source that appellants had discussed among themselves the necessity of murder if they met resistance" and evidence that victim "was immediately attacked by appellants, sustaining blows to his head and face from the metal chain and a mortal wound to the chest"), cert. . Despite finding that petitioners did not specifically intend that the victims die, plan the homicides in advance, or actually fire the shots, the court ruled that the requisite intent was established by evidence that petitioners played an active part in planning and executing the breakout and in the events that lead to the murders, and that they did nothing to interfere with the killings nor to disassociate themselves from the killers afterward. And an intuition that sons and daughters must sometimes be punished for the sins of the father may be deeply rooted in our consciousness.20 Yet punishment that conforms more closely to such retributive instincts than to the Eighth Amendment is tragicly anachronistic in a society governed by our Constitution. Pp. Creation of a new category of culpability is not enough to distinguish this case from Enmund. No. 79, 672 P.2d 862 (1983), construed its capital murder statute to require a finding of intent to kill. For example, the Model Penal Code treats reckless killing, 'manifesting extreme indifference to the value of human life,' as equivalent to purposeful and knowing killing"). And it took us by surprise as much as it took the family [the victims] by surprise because we were not expecting this to happen. Indeed it is for this very reason that the common law and modern criminal codes alike have classified behavior such as occurred in this case along with intentional murders. All but 16 of these were physically present at the scene of the murder and of these only 3, including Enmund, were sentenced to death in the absence of a finding that they had collaborated in a scheme designed to kill. Id., at 41, 111. Thus, in Enmund's case, "the focus [had to] be on his culpability, not on that of those who committed the robbery and shot the victims, for we insist on 'individualized consideration as a constitutional requirement in imposing the death sentence.' More recently, in Lockett v. Ohio, 438 U.S. 586, 98 S.Ct.

Florida, 458 U.S., at 801, 102 S.Ct., at 3378 (Enmund's "punishment must be tailored to his personal responsibility and moral guilt"). 689, 699, 88 L.Ed.2d 704 (1986) ("Considerations of federalism and comity counsel respect for the ability of state courts to carry out their role as the primary protectors of the rights of criminal defendants"). 15A-2000(f)(4) (1983). . 39, 108. Similarly, we hold that the reckless disregard for human life implicit in knowingly engaging in criminal activities known to carry a grave risk of death represents a highly culpable mental state, a mental state that may be taken into account in making a capital sentencing judgment when that conduct causes its natural, though also not inevitable, lethal result. * Under the felony-murder doctrine, a person who commits a felony is liable for any murder that occurs during the commission of that felony, regardless of whether he or she commits, attempts to commit, or intended to commit that murder. We do not approve or disapprove the judgments as to proportionality reached on the particular facts of these cases, but we note the apparent consensus that substantial participation in a violent felony under circumstances likely to result in the loss of innocent human life may justify the death penalty even absent an "intent to kill." See, e.g., Clines v. State, 280 Ark. Deeply ingrained in our legal tradition is the idea that the more purposeful is the criminal conduct, the more serious is the offense, and, therefore, the more severely it ought to be punished. . McGautha v. California, 402 U.S. 183, 204, 91 S.Ct. In Furman v. Georgia, supra, 408 U.S. 238, 92 S.Ct. 200.030(1)(b), 200.030(4), 200.033(4)(a)-(b) (1986); N.J.Stat.Ann.

The Arizona Supreme Court has made formal findings of "intent to kill" to comply with the perceived "dictate of Enmund." . What would be relevant, and what the summary in Enmund does not tell us, is how many of the 41 who did not participate were also found not to have intended that the murder occur. The Court held that capital punishment was disproportional in these cases. They searched for days with temperatures nearing 120 degrees.

The Court found: "The record establishes that both Ricky and Raymond Tison were present when the homicides took place and that they occurred as part of and in the course of the escape and continuous attempt to prevent recapture. After a 30 minute gunbattle with police, Randy, boys, Ricky and Raymond, were captured. This was impermissible under the Eighth Amendment." In my view, this rejection completes the analytic work necessary to decide this case, and on this basis petitioners' sentences should have been vacated and the judgment reversed. . Thus, the Court in Enmund examined the relevant statistics on the imposition of the death penalty for accomplices in a felony murder. The father fled. He was 76. After Gary Tison rendered the Lincoln inoperable by firing into its engine compartment, petitioner assisted in escorting the victims to the Lincoln.

Id., at 798, 102 S.Ct., at 3377 (emphasis in original). . 146-1158. Nevertheless, the court upheld the jury's verdict that Ricky and Raymond Tison were liable under the felony-murder doctrine for the murders that their father and Randy Greenawalt had committed. We should be reluctant to conclude too much from the Court's survey of state decisions, because most jurisdictions would not approve the death penalty in the circumstances here, see n. 13, infra, and the Court neglects decisions applying the law of those States. The Tisons' high level of participation in these crimes further implicates them in the resulting deaths. The occupants of the house, an elderly couple, resisted and Enmund's accomplices killed them. 2 * Gary Tison was sentenced to life imprisonment as the result of a prison escape during the course of which he had killed a guard.

Arbitrariness continues so to infect both the procedure and substance of capital sentencing that any decision to impose the death penalty remains cruel and unusual. This website offers a compilation of articles and concise quotes that represent Divine consciousness as interpreted through the individualized mind of Hope Johnson.

First, the Court's dictum that its new category of mens rea is applicable to these petitioners is not supported by the record. This Court, citing the weight of legislative and community opinion, found a broad societal consensus, with which it agreed, that the death penalty was disproportional to the crime of robbery-felony murder "in these circumstances." 1759, 64 L.Ed.2d 398 (1980).

Traditionally, "one intends certain consequences when he desires that his acts cause those consequences or knows that those consequences are substantially certain to result from his acts." Thus it appears that about three-fifths of the States and the District of Columbia have rejected the position the Court adopts today. denied, 474 U.S. 1073, 106 S.Ct. As petitioners point out, there is no evidence that either Ricky or Raymond Tison took any act which he desired to, or was substantially certain would, cause death. The Tison family assembled a large arsenal of weapons for this purpose. In light of this evidence, it is not surprising that the Arizona Supreme Court rested its judgment on the narrow ground that petitioners could have anticipated that lethal force might be used during the escape, or that the state probation officerwho reviewed at length all the facts concerning the sons' mental statesdid not recommend that the death sentence be imposed. Trop v. Dulles, 356 U.S. 86, 101, 78 S.Ct. This conclusion supports the verdicts of murder in the first degree on the basis of the felony murder portion of section 782.04(1)(a).'

The discrepancy between those aspects of the record on which the Court has chosen to focus and those aspects it has chosen to ignore underscores the point that a reliable and individualized Enmund determination can be made only by the trial court following an evidentiary hearing. The remaining States authorizing capital punishment for felony murders fell into two somewhat overlapping middle categories: three authorized the death penalty when the defendant acted with recklessness or extreme indifference to human life, and nine others, including Arizona, required a finding of some aggravating factor beyond the fact that the killing had occurred during the course of a felony before a capital sentence might be imposed. denied, 469 U.S. 1230, 105 S.Ct.
