Singer Bill To Reinstate Death Penalty For Cop Killers, Child Killers And Terrorists, Blocked By Dems

Trenton Democrats yesterday blocked Senator Singer’s consideration to have the death penalty reinstated for heinous crimes. Earlier this year, Senator Singer asked that legislation be considered to reinstate the death penalty in New Jersey for those who murder a child, kill a police officer in the line of duty or commit a terrorist attack that results in fatalities.

“I do not support the death penalty out of a need for revenge or due to malice in my heart, neither do the many individuals I have met who have suffered from heinous crimes,” Singer stated regarding the parliamentary tactic used by the Trenton Democrats to block the consideration. “I support the death penalty because sometimes it is the only way to achieve justice for the victims and families affected by horrible crimes.”

(See exclusive TLS video from earlier this year).

Singer noted that his legislation would apply in the tragic murder of 2 year old Tierra Morgan-Glover. She drowned when her father allegedly tossed her off a bridge, still strapped in her weighted down car seat while conscious and alert.

“I am well aware that the death penalty will not bring back a murdered child, slain police officer or a victim of terrorism,” Singer continued. “For certain crimes, life in prison is just not punishment enough.” TLS.

  1. While I am not surprised that the Dems blocked the bill (moderated), I would have wanted to see a bill from the honorable Bob Singer to reinstate the death penalty for all killers, not just cop killers.

  2. Thank you for your efforts on this bill. Continue to push this legislation, attempt to get the Governor to help, and publish the names of the opponents.

  3. Larry, you are 100% wrong. This bill is very important and the Senator has never stated that a cops life is more precious than a civilian. Nor does this bill state that. In an effort to gain bi partisan support for this bill, it did not include all killers. In addition, how about we talk about the fact that the Democratic Senate President, who decides which bill is posted and which is not, will not even post this bill for a vote by the entire NJ Senate. Wonder why? Because if it is posted, it will pass. What we should be talking about in addition to this legislation is why one individual, the Democratic Senate President has so much power and decides which bills are posted and which are not.

  4. I don’t think a cops life is more important then a civilian’s and would like to see the death penalty for both but bear in mind that in jail a cop killer is given enormous reverence by other thugs.Therefore someone with an arrest warrant for murder has a big incentive to kill a cop prior to being detained.I meet many corrections officers (prison guards)at work.They all felt that was the motive behind the murder of Matsloz.The death penalty would of taken that motive away.

  5. Let New Jersey not forget Poetry Night hosted by the President and his wife on 5/10/11. One of the honored guests was a rapper, Common, who wrote “Song for Assata”. Assata Shakur shot State Trooper Werner Foerster on the NJ Turnpike in 1973 with his own gun.
