The arguments in support of the ballot measure to abolish the death penalty are exaggerated at best and, in most cases, misleading and erroneous. Proposition 34 is being funded primarily by a wealthy company out of Chicago, the ACLU, and similarly-oriented trust funds. It includes provisions that would only make our prisons less safe for both other prisoners and prison officials and significantly increase the costs to taxpayers due to life-time medical costs, the increased security required to coerce former death-row inmates to work, etc. The amount “saved” in order to help fund law enforcement is negligible and only for a short period of time. Bottom line, the “SAFE” Act is an attempt by those who are responsible for the high costs and lack of executions to now persuade voters to abandon it on those grounds. Obviously, these arguments would disappear if the death penalty was carried forth in accordance with the law. Get the facts at and supporting evidence at and .

Of all endeavors that put innocents at risk, is there one with a better record of sparing innocent lives than the US death penalty? Unlikely.

2) Innocents More At Risk Without Death Penalty

I have no problem with putting down perpetrators of the worst crimes. However, too many innocent people are convicted of crimes because of bad witness identifications, bad police procedures, and bad judicial procedures. We know this from the number of people that have been freed based on DNA evidence. However, it only stands to reason that there are a lot more innocent people behind bars for which no DNA evidence is available and some of these people are on death row.
