    Why are most District Attorneys opposed? Will rapist and murders go free?

    No, of course not. Best that can be obtained is life in prison without parole.

    Mercy goodness, I guess as long as the crime was not commited against your children, wife or grandmother. I just read of the ones on death row, 153 out of the 157 was going to use the law for appeal. I think the victims of crime should do their occupy whoever is behind this law. Do you not care about the victims? Who is their voice? I am aware the Democrats allow a poorly run SBI lab creates many issues. But to rape and murder of the worst kind against a child and that person is given life or parole, really? What about the victims?
