Rod Blagojevich: Supports death penalty, but keep moratorium for now

I oppose the abolition of the death penalty, but I also believe that lifting the moratorium at this time would be unwise. We need time to see whether or not the criminal justice system can work again in capital cases.

Rod Blagojevich: Supports reducing recidivism and re-entry assistance

I have made reducing recidivism and re-entry assistance one of my top priorities. We have reopened the Sheridan Correctional Center as a facility to rehabilitate drug offenders. And, in my recent Budget address, I also proposed creating a specialized prison and treatment facility for meth addicts at the Southwestern Illinois Correctional Center.
