Report from Santa Cruz

On Wednesday Nov. 7th, death penalty activists gathered at the Court House in Santa Cruz to voice their support for an end to the death penalty and to join Richard Carlburg and Jeff Ghelardi on their walk from San Diego to Sacramento. Emily Malone, from Santa Cruz, expressed her appreciation to District Attorney Bob Lee who has not sought the death penalty and for the fact that there is no one currently on death row from Santa Cruz County. Derrel Myers, whose son JoJo was murdered at the age of 23, spoke passionately against the death penalty. The event was covered by the Santa Cruz Sentinel, and several other media outlets.

Report from Salinas

Richard and Jeff passed through Salinas on the way to Santa Cruz. About ten locals joined them on the outskirts of Salinas and walked en masse to the County Courthouse in downtown Salinas, with media coverage most of the way. Another ten or so supporters were waiting on the courthouse steps. There were few short speeches and some interviews, with coverage by KION (local CBS affiliate), Univision, and The Californian (Salinas newspaper), and the boys were on their way. Jeff and Richard reported that they were able to watch the unbiased KION tv story later that day.
