California: Death Row Inmates Oppose Prop. 34 Repealing Capital Punishment

Interesting angle:

It's not that they want to die, attorney Robert Bryan said. They just want to hang on to the possibility of proving that they're innocent, or at least that they were wrongly convicted. That would require state funding for lawyers and investigators - funding that Proposition 34 would eliminate for many Death Row inmates after the first round of appeals.

(For the record, I oppose capital punishment).
