No more field trips for criminally insane murderers.

"[Y]ou will want laws and magistrates to protect your property and persons, and to punish those among you who commit crimes. You will find that our laws are good for this purpose." Thomas Jefferson (Address to Delawares, 1808) We also need tougher laws for sex offenders and felons, not reduced sentences as some Democrats suggest. I fought hard in 2009 to prevent the passage of a bill restoring the voting rights of felons prior to restitution being paid and I strongly oppose the program which provides three months worth of rent to newly released convicted felons.

BREAK IN TRANSCRIPT

I will continue working toward crime prevention, as well, to include introducing legislation requiring accident and crime statistics be kept on illegal aliens and funding warrant enforcement at the state and local level.
