Against the death penalty?
Oct 21, 2012

There is a ballot measure here in California that I just voted on when I mailed in my vote by mail ballot. It is measure 34. If it passes it would permanently replace the death penalty with life without the possibility of parole

I voted yes. In the past I supported the death penalty, but over the years I have seen that our system is not good enough to insure that no wrongly convicted individuals get put to death and if even one does that is not acceptable to me.

Also it has been proven that in this state with all of the automatic appeals and other guarantees that convicted killers get that the death sentance actually cost tax payers 3 times more than life without parole and it is more likely that a convect will die of old age before they actually get put to death - - it just doesnt work

so to my fellow conservatives - - please tell me why you can still support the death penalty?
