Argument against California’s Prop 34 – banning the death penalty [Darleen Click]
Taking the death penalty off the table and replacing it with Life-without-Parole (LWOP) means either clogging up overburdened courts with yet more trials or pleading out known murderers to straight Life sentences. What incentive does a murderer have to skip a trial and plead to LWOP if the death penality is gone?
Murderers who know they are, to use an expression, caught dead to rights and know a jury will find them guilty will no longer accept LWOP plea-bargains.
