I have always been for the death penalty, but how long has it been since any one of the inmates on death row was executed? According to the article in the Lodi News-Sentinel, "Three California ex-governors oppose repeal of death penalty," by AP Writer Michael R. Blood (front page), there are 700 of them on death row and no execution since 2006! How many executions then — one?

Let's put a stop to this attorney haven and abolish the death sentence. Let's put the inmates in prison for life, since they are dying from old age on death row right now anyway.

Of course the prosecutors and attorneys want to keep the death penalty. It's money in their pockets as the prisoners sit with time on their hands preparing lawsuit after lawsuit and appeal after appeal.

Since 1979, $4 billion has been spent on this, and who pays it? The taxpayers.

Let's give them life without parole. That's how it is now anyway. Vote "yes" on Proposition 34.
