'Support for the Justices'

October 26, 1986

Your editorial states that the judiciary is the stabilizing force in the American system of government. In America, maybe. In California, hardly. If our judiciary were a stabilizing force, there would be no turmoil in this election.

The Times further states, "the courts are not so easily swayed"--right on point. Rose Bird (59 for 59 death penalty reversals) supports this point 100%. But the really galling statement to California voters is where The Times implies that the California Supreme Court is, "the true conservative branch of government . . . that prevents the majority from trampling on the minority."
