But will it go anywhere?

State Senator Alan Lasee (R-De Pere) will introduce a measure that will bring the death penalty back to Wisconsin. (link)

Last year Senator Lasee introduced Senate Joint Resolution 5 which allowed for the advisory referendum that was on November’s ballot. The advisory referendum passed!

“In the November election, the residents spoke loud and clear passing the referendum by 55 percent of the vote and in 68 of 72 counties,” said Lasee. In addition, over half of the counties passed this referendum by over 60 percent. “Clearly, people want to give judges and jurors this necessary tool when examining what sentence to impose upon a defendant charged with a heinous crime,” stated Lasee.

Lasee is right, the people of Wisconsin want to see justice and the legislature should move to reinstate the death penalty!
