Clemency for the condemned? Remember the victims

OPINION: Democrats ask that as California Gov. Jerry Brown leaves office he provide mercy to California’s 739 death row inmates. The governor of California has the power to issue pardons, commute sentences or grant clemency to individuals convicted of crimes in the state.  The state Legislature does not review this power.
