Insight Examines Prop 34

The question of whether a society should punish criminals who commit extreme acts of murder and violence with death is largely based on a person's moral, ethical, and/or emotional stance on the issue. 
 
But Proposition 34 adds one more factor to California's death penalty debate: the financial cost of killing criminals. 
 
Proponents of Prop 34 say abolishing the death penalty will save the Golden State $100 million a year, which can be redirected to investigating crimes. 
 
Opponents say the cost savings are misleading and California's death penalty should be reformed to be more efficient, not scrapped entirely.
