Constitutional restraint

As Judge Antonin Scalia says, the Constitution does not always match his own convictions, feelings and attitudes. Unlike "living constitutionalists", he does not expect it to.

I see a news story about two gangbangers who invade someone's home and shoot them in the process. For me, that would be automatic public execution. Were I in charge, any invasion of a private home which resulted in harm to residents would be a capital offense.

Unfortunately, I can't find any emanations or penumbras to support that.
