Gov. Rauner seeks to reinstate death penalty

Gov. Rauner seeks to reinstate death penalty Gov. Rauner seeks to reinstate death penalty
Patty Aguilar | 15 May, 2018, 13:53

That proposal is part of a public safety initiative Rauner unveiled in an amendatory veto of House Bill 1468.

When asked why Rauner hadn't laid out his policy goals when lawmakers were crafting legislation earlier this year, Brady said, "Well, that's a better question for the governor".

"These individuals who commit mass murder, who choose to murder a law enforcement officer, they deserve to have their life taken".

If the death penalty returns to IL, as Gov. Bruce Rauner proposed Monday, it might not have much of an effect on the strategy of criminal defense attorneys.

Gov. Bruce Rauner tied the death penalty plan to gun restrictions favored by Democrats who control the Legislature - inserting it into legislation that lengthens the waiting period for taking possession of rifles or shotguns from 24 hours to 72 hours, and adding other limits on firearms possession. Bill Brady, the Illinois Senate Republican Leader, said, "Reinstating society's most serious penalty for the most serious of violent crimes, with the proper safeguards, is an appropriate response to the horrific violence we have witnessed far too often in recent times". Last year, he bucked his own party to help override Rauner's veto on the state's first budget package in more than two years.

WHO urges global ban on trans fats
The initiative, called REPLACE , offers a "step-by-step" guide for nations to follow to remove trans fat from their diets. It estimated that every year, trans-fat intake leads to more than 500,000 deaths of people from cardiovascular diseases.

Authorize restraining orders to disarm risky individuals. He said, "If someone is perhaps on the verge of committing suicide, if someone is potentially a risky person and they have violent acts in mind, that extra two days could make the difference between life and death". "Doing so is in large part why we had so many problems and overturned convictions". Lawmakers can turn Rauner's changes into law through a simple majority vote.

"I don't think it would change how a defense lawyer approaches his or her job", said Jeffrey Urdangen, clinical associate professor of law and director for the Center of Criminal Defense at Northwestern University.

But even if someone was found guilty of Death Penalty Murder, imposing a death sentence would still be left to the discretion of a judge.

Defendants would be tried using a higher standard for determining guilt. Throughout a information convention, the Republican governor stated individuals who kill a police officer "deserve to surrender their life", the Chicago Solar-Instances reported. Death penalty murder suspects would have to be convicted by juries "beyond all doubt" - not just 'beyond a reasonable doubt'. Pat Quinn signed legislation that officially repealed the death penalty in 2011. "Any suggestion that it should be brought back without a full public discussion and full public hearings is incredibly reckless".
