Quote from CNN on line today:

"It's a very unusual case in many respects for a little town like this ... and it's pretty clear it's had some effects on the politics in Connecticut."

State Sen. Andrew McDonald, co-chairman of the Senate's Judiciary Committee, said the killings spurred lawmakers to change the state's criminal justice system.

"It was really a function of people who were very shaken, including legislators, about the tragedy," he said in a phone interview. Lawmakers "wanted to use that opportunity to reflect and act upon deficiencies that could be clearly identified and isolated within our criminal justice system."

"The Petit case is in my experience probably the most violent crime in my tenure," said McDonald, who was elected to the Senate in 2002. "This crime ... was unique in its violence and viciousness. It was particularly heinous, in my opinion."
And out state rep, Elizabeth Esty, who lives in our town - voted against the death penalty.
