Proposition 6 on California’s November ballot would increase funding for law enforcement and stiffen penalties for certain drug and gang-related crimes. We discuss Prop. 6 in the first half hour, and then turn to Proposition 9 which seeks to empower crime victims by giving them more access to information about the judicial process. Prop. 9 would also reduce the opportunities for parole hearings for those serving life sentences.

Guests:
Todd Spitzer, state assemblyman and statewide chairman of the Yes on Prop. 9 Campaign (second half hour)
Jakada Imani , executive director of the Ella Baker Center for Human Rights and treasurer of the No on 6 and 9 Campaign
George Runner, California state senator and author of Proposition 6 (first half hour)
