Is the life of a killer as valuable as that of the victim? Does the state have a right to kill in response to a killing? And above all, does the death penalty have its place in a democracy? Raphaël Enthoven speaks with the philosopher Benoît Basse and the former Minister of the Seals Robert Badinter, who abolished the death penalty in France.
