STATEMENT BY OCDA TONY RACKAUCKAS ON CALIFORNIA SUPREME COURT DECISION TO UPHOLD PROPOSITION 66
The decision by the California Supreme Court to uphold Proposition 66 (Prop 66) means that crime victims are spared further anguish and can sleep at night knowing they may finally get justice. As long as I have breath left, I will continue fighting for the death penalty, as I have as line prosecutor handling capital cases, then as a statewide leader campaigning to remove rogue justices who refused to uphold the death penalty, and most recently as Co-Chair for Prop 66. I want to especially thank Dr. Henry T. Nicholas, Collene and Gary Campbell, Tami and Kermit Alexander, Steve Craig, District Attorneys Anne Marie Schubert and Michael Ramos, and so many law enforcement and crime victim partners. The People of Orange County and crime victims who have suffered at the hands of the worst of the worst murderers deserve closure and a speedy execution.
