A Reaction to the September tour stop in St. Charles
Linda Robertson, who attended a September tour event, wrote a wonderful Letter to the Editor in the 'Kane County Chronicle', talking about her reaction to the true stories that she heard at the St. Charles Public Library on September 14th. In the article she emphasizes the speech given by Vicki Scheiber, who lost her daughter to murder, and highlights the suffering of murder victims' family members as a direct result of the death penalty.

KANE COUNTY CHRONICLE
'Letters: Against the Death Penalty'
To the Editor:
The presentations on Sept 14, True Stories of Illinois’ flawed Death Penalty, by the Illinois Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty at the St. Charles Public Library were real eye-openers for me. I thought I was well informed. As a scientist I have been concerned about the poor data and technical issues coming from cases that have caused exonerations. But I never expected that judges and juries would convict someone like Randy Steidl in a case with corroborating witnesses testifying that he was elsewhere at the time of the murders and no evidence to support the conviction. It totally offends my sense of justice.
