Former Govs Come Out For "No On Prop 34" Rally
Los Angeles, California (CNN) - When California voters head to the polls next week, one of the issues they will vote on is whether to eliminate the state's death penalty.
And three former governors of the state are urging voters not to do it.
Republicans Pete Wilson and George Deukmejian, along with Democrat Gray Davis, joined the families of several murder victims in L-A on Tuesday.
They warned that Proposition 34 would potentially free imprisoned killers.
The A-C-L-U, which supports the bill, say the four-billion-dollars used to implement the death penalty since 19-78 could better be used investigating unsolved cases.
Davis called the proposal to eliminate the death penalty a "horrible injustice" that would reopen old wounds for the families of murder victims.
