Default Attorney General Barr Reinstates Federal Death Penalty, Schedules 5 Executions

It's about time.

Might be nice if Congress also legislated that if a person is found guilty of horrific crimes meriting the death penalty and duly sentenced to get it, it will be carried out within 365 days unless the perp is found Not Guilty during that period. Knock off the decades of endless appeals. He was sentenced to DEATH, not to comfortable housing and board for the rest of his life.

Barr Reinstates Federal Death Penalty, Schedules 5 Executions

Thursday, 25 July 2019 02:37 PM

The U.S. Justice Department on Thursday reinstated a two-decades long dormant policy allowing the federal government's use of capital punishment and immediately scheduled the executions for five death row federal inmates.

"Congress has expressly authorized the death penalty through legislation adopted by the people’s representatives in both houses of Congress and signed by the President," Attorney General William Barr said in a statement.

"The Justice Department upholds the rule of law - and we owe it to the victims and their families to carry forward the sentence imposed by our justice system."

The last federal execution took place in 2003. Since then, protracted litigation over the drugs historically used in lethal injection executions prevented the government from continuing the practice, according to Justice Department officials.

Finally, the State can get back to what it does best: killing people.

Think I'll send in a few more tax dollars this week to help the initiative along.

Actually it does it quite poorly, as the record of the last 14 years demonstrates. What it's much better at, is taxing people, restricting them (often in unconstitutional ways), transferring their money to others who didn't earn it (always unconstitutional), and generally burying them in paperwork and regulations.

I disagree.

What the State does best is spend money and mismanage budgets.

People who kill others should get the same penalty of death that they gave to their victims.

Personally I think Timothy McVeigh met the end that he deserved. Hopefully you didn't have any loved ones or friends in that building.



His actions were no different than those who were behind 9/11.

At least 10 inmates have been wrongfully executed in the U.S. Who knows how many more there were that we don't know about. And 144 prisoners on death row have been exonerated.

One innocent person executed is one too many.

Agree about the innocent people. The obvious cases should be a no-brainer.
