    Gov. Newsom orders halt to California’s death penalty

    Bold move. Could cost him politically.

    Gov. Newsom orders halt to California’s death penalty

    Gov. Gavin Newsom is declaring a moratorium on California’s death penalty Wednesday and granting reprieves to 737 condemned prisoners on the nation’s largest Death Row, calling capital punishment discriminatory and immoral.

    In the process, he is ordering an end to prison officials’ struggle for more than a decade to devise lethal injection procedures that will pass muster in federal courts. Newsom also ordered an immediate shutdown of the state’s execution chamber at San Quentin prison, where the last execution was carried out in 2006.

    Especially since the voters vote to “Git ‘er done”.
    Prop (62)Repeal was 46%
    Not repeal was 52%
    Another proposition (66) was to fix the appeal limit to five years
    Pass at 51% to 49.

    The biggest cause of death on death row is old age. Now they want them treated like regular lifers.

    Just a little trivia that may surprise some people. Gavin Newsom's first wife is none other than Donald Jr's. new squeeze, Kimberly Guilfoyle, formerly a Fox Network personality on The Five. Kimberly Guilfoyle was fired from The Five after passing around some lewd photos of male genitalia to her cast-mates. I'm not saying the private parts belonged to Don Jr. but they were dating at that time despite him still being married and living with his now former wife, Vanessa.

    I don't think he's overturning the vote. Just halting executions for now. They can be restarted at any time. At least that's how I read it.

    Hmm... because locking someone up in a cage until they die (LWOP) is not barbaric. Is it not also barbaric for other inmates to be placed among those who have absolutely nothing to lose if they commit further violent acts?

    The last execution was 2006.

    Inmates Executed, 1978 to Present

    We are at the point where we have kill two two a day to get done in a year.

    There's no easy solutions for those instances when one is deemed unfit to be free in civil society. But I find the death penalty particularly abhorrent for two primary reasons:

    1] Mistakes cannot be rectified; One cannot be brought back from the dead.

    2] I do not believe we have the right to play God, to no immediate physical threat.

    Some people have it coming. CP is a humane way to deal with barbarism. Here is a case that took place back when I was attending the University of Akron so it always held my attention.

    Richard Cooey - Wikipedia

    The act of 'barbarism' took place Sept 1, 1986. Justice was served October 14, 2008
