Default Ryan vs. Ryan (about DP clemency hearings)

I posted a copy of an article I received in the Illinois forum about this case. The governor of Illinois will be giving every death sentenced offender an opportunity to present a personal "appeal" if you will to him and he will make a decision on clemency based on that presentation. I believe that there is an effort to block this event.

The governor's name is Ryan and so is the Attorney General. This is apparently in the Illinois Supreme Court now or headed there.

Regardless of a persons view on capital punishment, I think this article may be of interest. It is from the New York Times and was posted to the Yahoo Group TIFATALK.

Respectfully submitted,

Jim
