Death Penalty Initiative Gets Signatures of Past Governors

A coalition of death penalty supporters is gathering signatures for a proposed ballot initiative aimed at speeding up executions, and they have support from three former California governors. California has not had an execution since 2006. Supporters of the proposed initiative say it would will save the state money and promote justice for murder victims and their families. Opponents say backers of the initiative are on the wrong side of history. Christopher Martinez reports.
