CKUT's Prison Radio edition of Off The Hour featured a speech by Kenneth E. Hartman from a panel discussion held in California regarding the SAFE California Act. The SAFE California Act, which, if voted in, will replace California’s death penalty with a sentence of life in prison with no possibility of parole as the maximum punishment for murder.
Kenneth E. Hartman leads The Other Death Penalty Project, a group composed exclusively of prisoners with LWOP sentences, which has called upon death penalty abolitionists to stop promoting LWOP as a “supposedly humane alternative to lethal injection.” The group rejects the proposition that LWOP “is a necessary first step toward ultimate abolition of the death penalty.”
Originally Aired on CKUT's Off the Hour Thursday, September 13, 17-18h.
