Prop 34 fails but signals the imminent demise of California's death penalty | David A Love

PUBLISHED November 9, 2012

California's Proposition 34 ? the anti-death penalty ballot initiative also known as Safe California ? was narrowly defeated by a vote of 52.8% to 47.2%. The loss is a setback for the death penalty abolition movement, but a temporary one. California's death machine is irreparably broken, as is the state's larger criminal justice system, making the abolition of capital punishment inevitable.
