Family of Murdered DCFS Worker Wants Answers From Lawmakers
(Springfield, IL) — The husband of a murdered DCFS worker wants to know why keeping people out of prison is more important than his wife. Don Knight went to Springfield yesterday to ask statehouse Democrats to explain themselves. Quad Cities state Rep. Tony McCombie says Democrats killed the plan inspired by Knight’s wife’s death last week because it would increase prison sentences for people convicted of attacking a state employee. Knight asked lawmakers to tell him why they’d vote against the idea. Pam Knight died in February after lingering in a coma since September of last year after a brutal beating while checking on a child on a DCFS field call.
