SPRINGFIELD, IL-(Effingham Radio)- There’s not a lot of support at the Illinois Capitol to resurrect the death penalty in the state.
Democrats at the statehouse yesterday grilled the governor’s office about the need to bring back the death penalty, and the mechanics of how it would work.
State Rep. Christian Mitchell called the governor’s proposal slap-dash, haphazard and pathetic.
The governor’s office says Illinois must once again have the ultimate penalty for cop killers and mass murderers.
