When the Illinois House Bill 1812 reached the Illinois senate, Obama voted against it.

In part, it read "Amends the Criminal Code of 1961 and the Unified Code of Corrections. Expands the offenses of aggravated battery, aggravated battery with a firearm, and aggravated discharge of a firearm to include offenses committed by gang members upon persons who are not gang members, and provides that anyone convicted of aggravated battery
with a firearm or aggravated discharge of a firearm and sentenced to a term of imprisonment must serve the entire sentence imposed by the court. Provides that a person who is convicted of first degree murder may be sentenced to death if he or she committed the murder in furtherance of the activities of an organized gang or by his or her membership in or allegiance to an organized gang, and the murdered victim was not a member of an organized gang."

Makes me wonder if Obama would pardon these criminals if they are convicted.
