Gov. Newsom Grants Clemency to 21 Convicted Murders, Gang Members & Drive-By Shooters | CA Senate Republican Caucus

Governor Gavin Newson has taken the left coast further left than anyone has in modern history. One of his first decisions as governor was to spare all 800 death row inmates by halting any executions during his term in office. No matter how heinous their crime, his moratorium covers rapists, mass murderers, even those who tortured and maimed young children.Now, eight months into his first term, Governor Newsom decided to commute the sentences of 21 prison inmates: 14 convicted of murder or attempted murder and 7 whose crimes earned them life sentences without parole.What makes Governor Newsom’s latest clemency decision even more confusing is that over the past year, he has complained mightily about gun violence, yet 19 of the 21 he granted clemency committed their violent crimes using a firearm.
