Reader Input: Vote no on Prop. 34

-A +A

I strongly urge you to vote No on Prop 34. If Prop. 34 passes then the death penalty will cease and desist. A life sentence without parole will be put in its place which will place a huge financial burden on our state. This will apply to all future murder convictions, as well as all current inmates on death row. With the death penalty in play, it takes away all of the murderers from filling up our prisons, which lead to an overflow of inmates, causing the wrong people to be let out of jail. If this does not pass, there will be a huge increase of inmates, costing the government millions more per year. This would be bad because they will let out the people that have caused horrible crimes and put them back on the streets.
