Default Justice Department rushing to expand execution methods like firing squads

Justice Department rushing to expand execution methods like firing squads for federal death row inmates

"The Justice Department has rushed to change the rules around federal death penalties as they expedite a slew of scheduled executions in the final days of the Trump administration, including expanding possible execution methods to include electrocution and death by firing squad.

The approved amendment to the "Manner of Federal Executions" rule gives federal prosecutors a wider variety of options for execution in order to avoid delays if the state in which the inmate was sentenced doesn't provide other alternatives.
The rule was included among three dozen policy changes President Donald Trump is attempting to push through before the end of his term. The proposed changes were first reported by ProPublica."

More of the same from AG Barr and the outgoing president. I'll be glad to see them gone. They forgot to add the rack and the guillotine to the approved execution methods.

Voters must never allow another Trump in the Oval Office again. I’ve read he’s contemplating a 2024 run, though he may just be claiming that so he can continue to hold his ego-boosting rallies. His niece Mary Trump says she doesn’t think he will ever put himself in a position to be declared the loser again, like he is now. Thank God he and his family are on the way out.

apparently the guillotine was replaced with the knee on the neck so no need to reapprove.
