Calling the 3 strikes people "murderers"...

Does that mean that the repeal of the 3X law passed, or that it failed?

How exactly does the three strikes law work?

Is it just 3 felonies = life in prison?

If so then I dont really support it.

Or is it just for the more severe felonies?

Like for example if someone commits 3 murders and somehow managed to get less than life or the death penalty for for the first 2 then yeah the third should be automatically life if the jury doesnt give him the death penalty.

passed...but it's not a repeal. The judges have more say on whether the person should get 25 to life.

California Prop 66 would have weakened our existing 3 strike law. It would have given consideration to the...feloniousness....of the 2nd and 3rd felonies.

It's looking well and defeated.


EDIT: WHAT?! I must be looking at the wrong site.

59% Precincts Reporting

No - 2,866,317 (50%)
Yes - 2,814,234 (50%)

Most felonies are pretty serious crimes

WTF would they want to go backwards on crime and punishment?


Two things. The prop was initiated and bankrolled by a millionare whos son is in for 3 strikes. Add to that the urban legend of the guy who gets put away for 25-life for stealing a donut and the sheeple bleat.

I think many felonies are serious crimes, however I would not say all felonies are serious crimes.

Its good that they changed it.

Why does everybody forget about the two previous violent felonies that were committed prior to the last "minor" crime. A word to the wise, if you have two violent felonies, don't steal pizza from a little kid. And the last I looked, this proposition is being rejected by about 1.5%, hopefully it stays that way.

I hope it's defeated...

It's looking pretty well defeated. 52% against weakening the law at 68% reporting.
Link Posted: 11/2/2004 10:56:48 PM EST
I think 66 is pretty much defeated.

Think maybe they shouldn't f#cking be stealing pizzas then!!! Hell, if they get caught 3 times then they probably commited the crime 50-100 times!!! Get a grip and stop rationalizing excuses for these MF scumbagss!!!!

Sorry, but this kind of crap really chaps my ass!
