### alan alan three people have been convicted of death row crimes in butte county. vo district attorney mike ramsey said today he is disappointed in governor newsom's decision to go against what the people want. three times voters acted to keep the death penalty. ramsey expressed some concern for the language of thegovernor's order. sot full 36 seconds ; 00:00 - 00:20 da mike ramsey 00:20-00;36 brian holcombe - for the death penalty on death row and this is where it's confusing does it mean that he's death to life without possibility or to some other sentence which would them allow them at some point to be out i deter people from doing violent crime and i think its important that we keep the death penalty i voted to keep the death penalty i think it's wrong to put a moratorium on what we voted on. vo ramsey said he believes in the death penality. but he argues for that sentence sparingly... and this order could mean a less safe state. ## debbie
