Gov. Gavin Newsom is putting a moratorium on the death penalty in California, sparing the lives of more than 700 death-row inmates.

Newsom plans to sign an executive order Wednesday morning granting reprieves to all 737 Californians awaiting executions – a quarter of the country’s death row inmates.

His action comes three years after California voters rejected an initiative to end the death penalty, instead passing a measure to speed up executions.

If they ever decide to become another country, it may be in our best interest to negotiate the debt, turn them loose, and build a wall.

first off in defense of CA voters:

"His action comes three years after California voters rejected an initiative to end the death penalty, instead passing a measure to speed up executions."

Newsome is going against the expressed will of voters.

Heis a pathetically weak public speaker.

I feel terribly sorry for the 737 or more families who now have to deal with the fact that their loved one's killer now gets to avoid their just rewards.  Geez CA sucks.

It’ll probably save the state some significant bucks.

How will keeping 737 of the worst of the worst alive, with food, medical care, and sex change operations at will, save money?

$200 cost of chemicals x 737 = $147,400

$32,000 housing & feeding x 737 = $25,058,000/per year

I don't think so.

Gavin Newsom had better hope that no harm comes to one of mine because of this.  End of transmission.
