Letter: AD was wrong about Prop. 34, death penalty
The Appeal-Democrat made the wrong recommendation on Prop 34.
California's death penalty is broken beyond repair. It is costing the state millions more than life in prison without parole, and it's not making any of us safer. Half of the murders in California go unsolved every year while we waste money on people who are already locked up for life and will die in prison.
Also, let's not forget that we still run the risk of executing an innocent person — something the editors did not even discuss.
California is ready for this — I encourage your readers to vote yes on Prop. 34 for justice that works for everyone.
