Letter: Criminals no model for decent society

Criminals no model
for decent society
Re: “ Letter: Trust our voters, juries regarding death penalty ” (, Jan. 8):
Letter-writer John Haggerty hoped Gov. Jerry Brown would not abolish the death penalty before he left office, “because many criminals, themselves, clearly believe in the deterrent effect of the death penalty every time they ‘execute’ the violators of their ‘rules.’ They do not give rule breakers ‘three hots and a cot’ for life as you now propose.”
