Will California Voters Speed the Pace of Executions?

Hosted by

There are 746 inmates on death row in California, which hasn't conducted an execution since 2006. Yesterday, after 28 years on death row, Wilbur Lee Jennings died of natural causes. Today, a group of former politicians were the first to sign an initiative that would speed up the process.  Three former Governors — Democrat Gray Davis, along with Republicans George Deukmejian and Pete Wilson — are on board along with LA County's former District Attorney Steve Cooley.
