Attorney General Bill Barr Reinstates Federal Capital Punishment for Child Killers


Department of Justice Attorney General, Bill Barr, announced the reinstating of executions for federal crimes on Thursday, after a two decade break, commuting and scheduling the capital punishment of five death row murderers’ and child killers, for the first time since 2003. 

These executions have now been scheduled during the months of December and January. Clearly, murderers’ and killers of children, should be put to death, and this aligns with the move to bring back federal capital punishment for such crimes. Once you look into the crimes of the five death row inmates set to be executed, they couldn’t be put to their deaths’ fast enough.

The five death row inmates are Daniel Lewis Lee, Lezmond Charles Mitchell, Wesley Ira Purkey, Alfred Bourgeois and Dustin Lee Honken, whom will all be put to death. One wonders why they haven’t already been executed, given their heinous crimes and after you read up on their horrific cases, with all the detail, that are even hard to read about, then you will most definitely agree that this just.

Their crimes, are unspeakable crimes, whose victims all included the killings of children, as is the case with Daniel Lewis Lee, who murdered a family of three, including an 8-year old girl, by drowning them in the Illinois bayou, weighed down with heavy rocks.

Whilst, Lezmond Charles Mitchell killed a 63-year old grandmother and a young girl aged just 9-years old. He slit the throats of his victims, then later smashed the head of the little girl with a 20lb rock, until she died.

Dustin Lee Honken shot and killed five people, including two girls, aged 6 and 10, for which he will now be executed on January 15th, 2020. Two of the men that he killed, were set to testify against him, after they were arrested, as they were going to out Honken for running a crystal meth lab in Arizona. Honken killed them and their families.

Federal inmate, Alfred Bourgeois, who raped, tortured and killed his own 2-year old daughter, will now be put to death on January 13th, 2020.

These people are all sick and twisted convicts, and it’s beyond enraging that they haven’t been put to death sooner, as when you read up on the horrifying details of their murders, it’s enough for you to question, why and how have they even been allowed to even live on death row, for all these years?

Attorney General Bill Barr is doing the right thing in bringing back the death penalty for federal crimes such as in the cases of these brutal murderers, who have killed women and children, that must now be put to death, after also being made to suffer sufficiently for their inhumane crimes.

Attorney General William Barr announced he has reinstated the federal governments use of capital punishment after a nearly two-decade hiatus, stating on Thursday:

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.”

“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.”

In a statement the Justice Department said that the five men who will be executed “are Death-row inmates convicted of murdering, and in some cases torturing and raping, the most vulnerable in our society—children and the elderly.”

To read up on the full details of the horrific crimes committed by Daniel Lewis Lee, Lezmond Charles Mitchell, Wesley Ira Purkey, Alfred Bourgeois and Dustin Lee Honken, refer to this article, but we must forewarn you that it will most definitely ruin your day, your week or even give you nightmares for years to come, so just imagine what it did for anyone involved.

But, what is worth noting is that Donald Trump and the Trump administration, along with the honourable Attorney General, Bill Barr, have clearly placed down a marker for justice against criminals and murderers, and one has to agree that those whom murder, including those whom rape and murder children, should definitely be executed.

There is more than one worthy reason for reinstating the death penalty for such federal crimes, not only due to these sickening murderous’ criminals mentioned here within, but also for any more of such murderers that are currently living on death row, as well as to those, whom have not yet been brought to trial, or been given any charges for their ‘crimes against children,’ for instance.

That such evil even exists in the world is enough to shock you to your core, but with justice coming to those whom have conducted such crimes, gives a little bit of rest-bite and or some resolve, knowing that it will be what the victims and victim’s families and friends, deserve to see in the course of definitive justice against such perpetrators.

Can you fathom those who commit such crimes, and partake in these types of barbaric, sick and unspeakable crimes, including the ‘crimes against children’, or to anyone else, for that matter? There are people out there, that are ‘Pure Evil’ and they should pay for their crimes, as the justice department now states within reinstating capital punishment for those types of federal crime cases.
