This week Laurie is joined by LARB legal affairs editor Don Franzen to discuss two competing California Ballot Initiatives related to the death penalty: Proposition 62, which would put an end to the death penalty in the state, and Proposition 66, a confusing pro-death-penalty measure, which calls for speeding up executions. Stephen Rohde (from Death Penalty Focus) and legendary former District Attorney of Los Angeles County, Gil Garcetti, contribute to the clarifying conversation.
