Seek death penalty you bastard

Unfortunately, Illinois has politicians that would rather keep this killer alive and have us taxpayers pay through the nose so he can be comfy and cozy in prison- without having to face the death penalty. Remember this the next time you vote for Quinn. Remember this when he gets parole someday that if you voted for Quinn that you knowingly voted to keep this killer alive yet se good contributing member of society is no longer alive because of this killer.
