I realize many of you have already seen this John McCain campaign ad….
Take a look at Richard Cooey.
Cooey is on death row.
He threw a large rock off an overpass, striking and disabling a car with two female college student passengers. Cooey pretended to come to their aid, then raped and killed them.
Now he claims it would be unfair to execute him.
Cooey says he's too fat, meaning it would be difficult to find veins to insert the needle to administer the lethal injection.
Did this fiend give his victims any medication to ease their pain before he took their lives?
It's a ridiculous defense that no self-respecting judge should allow. Cooey needs to be put to death.
Massachusetts has it, and today, the governor of Illinois signed legislation that will require violators of restraining orders to wear GPS tracking devices.
On March 7, 2008, Cindy Bischof was leaving her real estate job in Elmhurst, Illinois when she was shot and killed by her ex-boyfriend, Michael Giroux. The law is named for Cindy Bischof, who was shot and killed by her ex-boyfriend, Michael L. Giroux. Bischof had moved from place to place and even installed security cameras. But Giroux continued to find and stalk her. There was a restraining order against him when he killed Bischof. Giroux obtained a gun after he was prosecuted twice for violating restraining orders.
Republicans in the Illinois House proposed the GPS bill that is now law and goes into effect January 1, 2009.
We put GPS on sex predators to protect society. Why not on the creeps who prey on innocent women?
Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich, with Cindy Bischof's family behind him on Monday, signs a domestic violence law named for her. Behind him at Hull House Uptown Center in Chicago is Bischof's parents Barbara and Frank Bischof. Cindy Bischof was killed by an ex-boyfriend who was under a court order of protection. The new law allows for domestic abuse suspects to be fitted with GPS monitoring devices. (Chicago Tribune photo by Charles Osgood / August 4, 2008)
