We are, what we do, and under the Trump Administration, you can expect nothing less than marching backwards. Federal Government Set to Resume Executions https://www.wsj.com/articles/federal-government-set-to-resume-executions-11564066216 The federal government will resume executing death-row inmates after a 16-year hiatus, Attorney General William Barr said Thursday, countering a national trend that has seen capital punishment decline. The Federal Bureau of Prisons scheduled the executions of five death-row inmates who were convicted of murder, undoing what essentially had been a moratorium on the federal death penalty during a Justice Department review of the drugs used to execute prisoners. The move is a reflection of President Trump’s own support for the death penalty. Mr. Trump has long pushed the Justice Department to pursue capital punishment more often, including against drug dealers and in cases where police officers are slain.
