  • Artist’s message about why Illinois should return to rehabilitation and an improved parole system: Personally, I feel that enough is enough. Draconian sentencing laws were passed for the worst of the worst; however, the [reality] is that, if they can give anyone the max, they will. This is politics, and the creation of union jobs, which fill union coffers, which in turn fund political campaigns.
