22 Oct Proposition 66: Death Penalty Court Procedures (NO)
Explanation: Proposition 66 changes death penalty procedures to speed up the appeals process by putting the Supreme Court in charge of initial petitions challenging death penalty convictions, establishing a time frame for death penalty review, and requiring appointed attorneys to work on death penalty cases.
BWW Analysis: Ok, so this one is serious. Proposition 66 is terrible, just terrible. We know that there has been innocent people on death row, and that there is a high possibility, that they are still a number of innocent people on death row. This proposition will speed up the death penalty process, increasing the risk of putting to death innocent people. And like Prop 62, it also makes the folks who are on death row essentially slaves until they are killed by the state, by taking 70% of their wages as restitution to victims and families of victims.
