SPRINGFIELD – The Illinois Senate voted against one of the governor’s picks to continue serving on the Prisoner Review Board, who approved the early prison release for criminals charged with murdering police officers. Attributing to her vote against the appointment, State Senator Meg Loughran Cappel (D-Shorewood) released the following statement:
“Each time we hear an officer is murdered, we are reminded that these men and women risk their lives for us every day. The early release of criminals convicted of murdering a police officer makes a mockery of our justice system, and it’s disappointing to see this nomination before us to serve on the Illinois Prisoner Review Board.
“The early release of these criminals sends a horrible message and the governor needs to do right by reappointing worthy candidates.”
