The result of the vote won't really matter because either the Legislature, the Governor or the Courts will change the outcome if they don't like it just as they have done with other propositions.

Once again, the hand wringing, criminal loving and embracing liberal mindset simply cannot see the forest through the tree's.
"The state has spent $4 billion on the 13 executions, says Woodford, at a time when we're laying off teachers and cutting vital services."
The STATE has been FORCED to spend your $4 billion you... ______________(insert preferred conservative vs. liberal derogatory comment) because of the never ending series of appeals, roadblocks, and red tape thrown into the process of executing the convicted murderers, child rapists, serial killers and sociopaths. This is after ALL of the proceedings of the initial police investigations, arrest, arraignments, charges filed and case built, trial dates, legal pleadings and re-trials, appeal after appeal after appeal and every possible character witness has testified to the fact that "Johnny was just a good boy" the liberal mindset still refuses to accept that some people just need to have their Humanity Card revoked and sent to the court of a higher (or lower) order for their final judgement.
So, no. Don't abolish the death penalty, abolish the appeals process and create a 30 day window from conviction to execution, put a turnstile into death row and create a TRUE incentive to criminals that the state of California doesn't tolerate your behaviour.
Money saved, death row emptied in 2 months, lawyers/liberals pissed off, California a safer place to live, wow! A win, win, win, win situation if you ask me!

I don't care whether the execution takes 30 days or 30 minutes. I don't carewhether the guy is guilty or innocent. As long as it lowers my taxes I'm fine with it. (Liberal montra to follow.)
