BREAKING NEWS: California Will Not Resume Executions This Year

The Los Angeles Times reports:

California corrections officials have put off until at least next year any attempt to resume executions among the 713 condemned inmates on death row, according to court documents.

The request by the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation to delay review of newly revised lethal-injection protocols until January at the earliest follows a decision last week by Gov. Jerry Brown to scrap plans to build a new death row facility at San Quentin State Prison.

Now would be a very good time to poll the public for support of the death penalty, including controls for information about expenditure.

Props to Simon Grivet.
