California is transferring 700 death row inmates.

How does this make you feel?

California will be transferring 700 death row inmates currently housed at San Quentin to 8 other prison facilities. This has caused anger and frustration by some families of the victims.

The transferred inmates would be released from San Quentin and moved to prisons throughout California where they can participate in rehabilitation programs, and be living amongst low level criminals.

California has the largest number of death row inmates in the country. The sunny state houses at least 750 condemned inmates, yet has not carried out a single execution since 2006. 2019 Gavin Newsom imposed a moratorium on the execution of inmates last year, and said it would last as long as he’s in office.
