Peter Camejo on Crime
Reform Party nominee for Vice President; previously Candidate for CA Governor
Since the Civil War, without exception, the Democratic Party has opposed all mass struggles for democracy and social justice. These include the struggle for ballot reform, for the right of African Americans to vote and against American apartheid ("Jim Crow"), for the right to form unions, for the right of women to vote, against the war in Vietnam, the struggle to make lynching illegal, the fight against the death penalty, the struggle for universal health care, the fight for gay and lesbian rights, and endless others. Many of these struggles were initiated by or helped by the existence of small third parties.
CAMEJO: In Illinois they found about 15 innocent people on death row. I'm totally opposed to the death penalty as are most advanced industrial nations in the world, if not all of them, except the United States.
CAMEJO: I'm against Three Strikes where we put a person in jail for life for stealing $150 worth of videos. When our court ruled that that was unjust, Governor Davis appealed it to the Supreme Court to make them remain in prison for life for a minor crime. These policies we have on the death penalty, and on Three Strikes are wrong.
