California's death row is significantly larger than Texas's. And everyone knows why.

Last one was just back in January. Check here. He was on death row almost 21 years.

Bonner, or Bonyers? Guy who raped 14 boys and killed most of them. Execution in 1994 or 95. I was there at San Quentin amongst the protestors, handing out tracts.

The last person executed in California was Donald Beardslee on January 19 of this year, a little less than 21 years after being sentenced to death. He was the first person to be executed in California in almost three full years.

Too many liberal lawyers sucking off the government teat. This way they are guaranteed a pension.

Donald Jay Beardsley, January 2005. Unfortunately California commuted the sentence of a man who attacked my mom in 1963. He later went home and bludgeoned his invalid sister and elderly mother after my mom fought him off. My mom was the star witness who put him away, and this man, who also killed a vagrant while in jail awaiting trial, haunts her to this day because he comes up for parole every once in a while. Why would a man sentenced to death EVER get a chance for parole? Shouldn't we parole the pot smokers first? Just a thought.
