Calif. Bill Would Let Voters Decide on Abolishing Death Penalty
July 08, 2011
A California legislative committee has approved a Berkeley lawmaker's proposal to allow voters to decide whether to abolish the death penalty.
The Assembly's Public Safety Committee approved legislation by Sen. Loni Hancock (D-Berkeley) that would put a measure on the ballot replacing the death penalty with life in prison without the possibility of parole as the state's most extreme punishment.
The bill must clear several other legislative hurdles before making it to the ballot.

It does not surprise me that this would originate in Berkley. If any state needs a death penalty in my mind it would be California. Nuts and gangster types run amuck down there. When a thousand officers ( I kid you not ) show up for a gang sweep, you know there is a need for some significant attitude adjustment. This could be a money issue or Berkley doper mentality.
