Proposition 34: The Death Penalty in CaliforniaDownload audio (MP3)
Should California end the death penalty? If approved by voters, Proposition 34 on the November state ballot would convert the sentences of death row inmates to life in prison without the possibility of parole. We'll debate the measure as part of our election series, "What's Government For?"
