One witness, Clay Laird, had to be ousted from the hearing after telling lawmakers they "would hear from him" if they didn't vote for the bill, adding that the comment was "promise written in blood," the Chronicle reported.

Laird had testified earlier that his elderly mother was raped and killed more than 20 years ago by a former Texas inmate freed by court order because Texas prisons were overcrowded.
