My God Genghis. After reading that I realised that it had gone dark!
One of the reasons that it takes so long in CA is there is not enough qualified appellate attorneys that handle DP cases, consequently there is a backlog of inmates waiting to get assigned an attorney. Many inmates have had their sentence upheld by the CA State Supreme Court but have not started their federal appeals because of this lack of attorneys.Within the last 3 years although there were, I believe two inmates with dates, the Federal District Judge put a moritorium on executions, because for one, believe this...the death chamber was too small. This was fixed and the same judge, wanted the protocals for LI vetted which required months and months of public input. Dee
The big question is WHY doesn't Texas take decades to execute and California does?Yes, the Death Penalty is expensive, but it IS WORTH IT.California's DP appeal process needs to be FIXED, not abolished. Why would you throw a good car out if it needs a tune-up?Bring back California's old way of carrying out the DP. They executed on a regular basis and never overfilled North Seg., the original Death Row.As I've mentioned before, if the DP is taken away, there will be many more murder cases taken to trial because there will be no plea bargins as we know it today. This will save the State millions per year avoiding costly murder trials.
