The Peace and Freedom Party gives critical support to this latest attempt to repeal the death penalty. We look forward to a time when voters do not need to be enticed to end state murder. We are opposed to the automatic imposition of “life in prison without the possibility of parole,” which is required under current law. Mandatory sentencing neither deters criminal activity nor promotes a just society. Vote Yes, but keep working to make the justice system just.
