Death Penalty Opponents Rally Ahead of November Election

Victims of violence and families of murder victims rallied in front of the Ronald Reagan state building in downtown Los Angeles this morning. They shared their stories and urged voters to repeal California's death penalty in November. The SAFE California Act would replace capital punishment with life without parole, saving the state hundreds of millions of dollars. Some of the savings would go to solving murder and rape cases and compensating victims' families. Pacifica's Dan Fritz files this report.
