Should one be rewarded for stealing?

When one takes money that is not his, he is breaking the law and he does not expect to be reimbursed for his deed. When the state of Illinois took the money that should have been deposited into the retirement reserve funds, which is mandated in the Illinois Constitution, the state broke the law. And now some Illinois politicians expect the retirees, from whom the money was stolen, to reimburse the state for the state's illegal action.
