OUTRAGE: Killer flees, family not responsible

Despite his brutal and fatal beating of Tombol Malik, Muaz Haffer was granted bail. He fled, most likely out of the country. His father and sister took the Fifth Amendment when asked by a grand jury if they encouraged or helped him escape. Now, get this. Under Illinois law, parents, siblings and spouses cannot be arrested or punished for concealing a bail jumper or aiding in an escape, no matter how serious the crime.

What could possible induce a majority of the legislature and a governor to be persuaded to pass such a law?
