Death Penalty

Today on Your Call: Should the death penalty be abolished in California?


On today's Your Call, we’ll continue our election coverage with a debate on Proposition 34, which would repeal the death penalty and replace it with life imprisonment without parole. It would also apply retroactively to the sentences of the 725 people currently on California’s Death row. Supporters of Prop 34 say it will save the state money.  Opponents say it is not fair to victims and their family members.  Join us at 10am Pacific or post a comment here.  Do you think it's time to abolish California’s Death Penalty? It’s Your Call with Holly Kernan, and you.
