AG Barr to Start Executing Child Murderers and the Left Freaks Out

The Left's war on the criminal justice system has largely been successful.
Republicans, who were once tough on crime, have been co-opted into supporting "criminal justice reform". Meanwhile police departments around the country have been terrorized with the Ferguson Effect. And the death penalty has become precarious because of a sustained effort to cut off access to the medications needed for lethal injection.
And now comes an unexpected announcement from Attorney General Barr.
Attorney General William P. Barr has directed the Federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP) to adopt a proposed Addendum to the Federal Execution Protocol—clearing the way for the federal government to resume capital punishment after a nearly two decade lapse, and bringing justice to victims of the most horrific crimes. The Attorney General has further directed the Acting Director of the BOP, Hugh Hurwitz, to schedule the executions of five death-row inmates convicted of murdering, and in some cases torturing and raping, the most vulnerable in our society—children and the elderly.
“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 Barr said. “Under Administrations of both parties, the Department of Justice has sought the death penalty against the worst criminals, including these five murderers, each of whom was convicted by a jury of his peers after a full and fair proceeding. 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 details are horrifying. And the timing is important.
Governor Newsom in California decided to give monsters that were just as bad a pass. The Trump administration won't.
