Prosecutor: ‘Nothing brings total justice’

Tom Moss, who prosecuted Paul Ezra Rhoades in 1987 and later served as U.S. attorney for Idaho, said after this morning's execution, “Nothing brings total justice. They don't get their loved ones back. But it brings some satisfaction to them.” He said, “I've often said I don't think I will live to see anybody executed. So there's a certain amount of closure to see one of 'em get executed. … There is satisfaction to see finally the law comes to its conclusion, it's done. These families don't have to read any more in the paper about there's something going on with Paul Rhoades. … This case is closed.”
