"Any change in death penalty procedures typically are met with legal challenges and sometimes lengthy administrative reviews, Dieter added, noting that California has not had an execution since 2006 because of exhaustive review procedures. A measure has qualified for the ballot in November in California calling for repeal of the death penalty."


It would be interesting to see what would happen to the rest of the country concerning the death penalty if California were to abolish it.

Disgusting! Read more here.

"The people of Oklahoma would be extremely disappointed in their Republican-led Legislature and executive branch, if we let the death penalty effectively fall away...................Oklahomans believe in the execution of brutal and cold-blooded killers. They expect us to carry out their will.”


This Republican representative Armes DOES NOT speak for this Oklahoma native. I am a proud Anti-Death Penalty Liberal!
