Voters in California will have a chance to kill the Death Penalty this November

1 post / 0 new

Opponents of the death penalty collected the 800,000 signatures necessary to put a ballot measure up for a vote in November to abolish the state’s death penalty. Currently – California has the largest death row population in America – and it costs roughly 300 million to put each inmate to death. If opponents of the death penalty succeed in November – then California will become the 17th state in the nation to abolish capital punishment.
