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.
