SAN JOSE - Gov. Jerry Brown, who has personal reservations about the death penalty but enforced it as state attorney general, said this morning that he is glad a measure to abolish the death penalty will be on the November ballot, though he declined to say how he will vote.

Brown vetoed death penalty legislation in 1977, when he was governor before. The Legislature overrode his veto, and he said during the 2010 gubernatorial campaign that he would uphold it as governor.

Boy, he’s going to be shocked when it slapped down by 60%+ of the California vote.
What did Moon Beam do that would make him subject to getting the death penalty?
How’s the moron going to “feel” when the CA voter’s reject this imbecilic ballot measure??
“Jerry Brown glad death penalty measure on November ballot”
Fabulous! Yet another Brown prop to vote down.
This November is going to be fun!
But, but I thought he was in favor of reducing the prison population.
Baloney. From 2007 to 2011, there were no executions with over 700 death row inmates to choose from. He knows as well as anybody that there was a moratorium on the DP that is still in effect now. He never had to enforce anything. What is the point of having it if you are not going to use it?
He is. That's why CA has been releasing inmates out onto the streets.
