Voices from California's Death Row

Delaney G. Marks

My opinion of your six questions.

1.      Would you like to see “The Justice that Works Act” passed or not? Why or why not? 

I believe some violent killer need harder punishment until they shape up and be a better people. I don’t believe every case should be executed with death. I would like to see some sections of Justice Acts passed. Reason it grants some justice for some inmates who have just mistaken. 

2.      How do you feel about the replacement of Life Without the Possibility of Parole (LWOP), instead of the death penalty?

I am strongly in favor of (LWOP) Life Without the Possibility of Parole. 

3.      How do you feel about the requirement that all those with LWOP sentences have to work (this would include all those currently on death row)?

I feel that is dangerous; but Justice and all inmates should be working. 

4.      How do you feel about the mandate that all those with LWOP sentences would have to pay 60% of their wages earned toward restitution if they have restitution orders in their case?

I believe the restitution is high but it is fair to the State of California. 

5.       There is also a ballot initiative called "The Death Penalty Reform and Savings Act" that seeks to speed up executions. If both pass, the one with the most votes will go into effect. Does that change how people should vote? Does that change your opinion of the Justice that Works Act?

Depending upon the case rather it should be speeded up. My opinion. I believe it should change how people vote; not to leave out consideration for others. Human morals should have a right to be give thought; and the time needed to be given thought.
