Anti-Death Penalty Bill is Sound – Letter to the Editor

San Francisco Chronicle – Letters to the editor – July 11, 2011 —– We applaud Sen. Loni Hancock’s well thought-out legislation (SB490) to abolish the death penalty (“Death penalty far costlier than life sentences,” June 21). The cost of prosecuting and defending such cases; the unimaginable societal costs of executing the innocent; the costs of appeals; the misuse of monies that could have been spent elsewhere in our cash-strapped state – all these costs make abolishing the death penalty a reasonable, sound and ultimately just decision.
