NBC News - AG Barr reinstatement of Federal Death Penalty


I'm sure the timing is just a coincidence right?



Attorney General William Barr has ordered the reinstatement of the federal death penalty after a 16-year pause, the Department of Justice announced Thursday.

Barr also directed the Federal Bureau of Prisons to schedule the executions of five death-row inmates convicted of murder, the Justice Department said in a news release.

The executions are slated to take place in December 2019 and January 2020.
“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,” 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," he added.
The last federal execution occurred in 2003, when Louis Jones Jr. was put to death for raping and murdering a 19-year-old female soldier.
There are currently 62 inmates on federal death row, according to a list compiled by the Death Penalty Information Center, a Washington, D.C., nonprofit.

Not going to reduce the murder rate, god help him if any scheduled are innocent, many innocent people have been executed, and many have been exonerated whilst sitting on death row.

Even though I wrote that, sometimes there are people so vile..well, you know.

hmm.
What is the penalty for treason again?

I think we might be needing this penalty soon for a few traitors.

The timing is not coincidental.

Too many people are on the loose taking murder to the next level these days, especially MS13 when they lop of peoples heads. Then you have ongoing Treason. I assume that you are aware that we are at war in this country. Also toss in ANTIFA and stir.

Has anyone been accused of working with Iraqi or Afghani enemies right now?

If not, I think sedition is the crime many people mean to say in this context.

I think death is an easy way out.

Why not send them to one of the more rapey jails so they can get some karma?

With DNA, cameras, phone records the odds are remarkably low these days of getting it wrong. For people like serial killers, the amount of damage they do is enormous. It's the people they killed plus all the people that loved those people that have to live with that loss forever. Knowing the killer is dead as a door knob is a small gesture that relieves some of that grief.

My thoughts exactly.

My pity meter for all these folks is sitting on empty right now.

Treason? like who you feel should be executed?

As for murder, the death penalty doesn't effect the murder rate, it's a revenge thing..and I get it sometimes.

Except sedition doesn't carry the possibility for the death penalty....

And I know people love using the treason word, but I have yet to see an accusation lately that would fall under the constitutional guidelines for treason.

You must not be familliar with how the police and prosecutors operate at times, crooked labs even.
Those phone records or dna may be suppressed by LE, or prosecution. Many people found innocent by the various entities like the Innocence Project, have found just that.

And, of course, it's often a matter of how much you have to spend on a legal defence.

This is one of my favorite trees to bark up... In the end people's denial doesn't matter, the laws are quite clear on sedition vs treason.

I just find it ironic the "constitutional" defenders are willing to ignore this most times it's brought up, because it's inconvenient.

Both parties prove their willingness to ignore the rule of law when it comes to going after their opponents.

Meanwhile countries that have outlawed the death penalty and focus on rehabilitation have a much lower recidivism rate.

Instead here in the US we have turned prisons in to a for-profit business. And people are still surprised that we have the highest prison population in the world?
