Preempting The Death Penalty

JewishPress Logo

With this understanding of the Rosh the question does not start because the Rosh never said that we could apply the halacha of moridin to one who sins after being warned with his life. Therefore it is clear why the Torah commanded us not to kill a sinner until after his day in court – since he cannot be killed before then. And one who does kill him prior to his day in court will be considered a murderer.
