Yes On 57

The LA Times endorses Prop 57 as a “much-needed check on prosecutorial power.”

The Times calls Prop 57 “Governor Jerry Brown’s effort to recalibrate California’s criminal justice system by returning to judges, parole boards, and prison officials some of the power that craven lawmakers and frightened voters have, over the years, unwisely transferred to prosecutors. It’s a welcome and needed measure, although less simple than the brevity of its language or various assertions on both sides would suggest. The Times urges voters to read it, understand it, and vote “yes.”
