VENTSday On Death Penalty

Scott Shafer/KQED

VENTSday returns to the air this week, with an issue that always generates strong feelings: the death penalty. 

Capital punishment is still on the books in both states, though California's vote on Props 62 and 66 will determine if executions will continue there. 

What is appropriate, in your mind?  Should the state have the power to kill people, as punishment for murder?  Should crimes other than murder be eligible for death sentences? 

VENTSday seeks YOUR thoughts, through our survey (below); by phone at 800-838-3760 live (or 541-552-6331 in advance); by email at JX@jeffnet.org.  VENTSday is a guest-free public forum.  You want to be heard; we want to hear your thinking.
