Second Bill Introduced That Would Strengthen NJ’s Crime Laws

Senator Robert Singer (R-Ocean) introduced legislation today that would increase the penalty for individuals interfering with the apprehension, prosecution, or conviction of a person following the commission of a crime. This legislation comes on the heels of a bill introduced last week by Senator Singer that would reinstitute the death penalty for individuals who murder a child, kill a police officer in the line of duty or commit a terrorist attack that results in fatalities.

“Anyone who assists an individual after the commission of a crime is just as guilty as the original perpetrator and the punishment received should reflect that fact, ” Singer stated. “Tough enforcement today is crime prevention tomorrow.”

Senator Robert Singer (R-Ocean) introduced legislation today that would 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. “I support the death penalty because sometimes it is the only way to achieve justice for the victims and families affected by horrible crimes.”

“These men and women serve an important role in providing for our public safety and they should be recognized for their hard work and sacrifice, ” Singer stated. “These investigators perform the same basic functions as local police officers, yet remain ineligible to participate in certain programs or apply for certain grants. That is not right.”
