Trump’s Call to ‘Bring Back the Death Penalty’

“Although Trump did not mention this to his audience, the federal government reinstated the death penalty in 1988, and there are currently more than 60 prisoners on federal death row, according to the Death Penalty Information Center” writes Eugene Kiely for factcheck.org. And I think they should stiffen up laws, and I think they should very much bring the death penalty into vogue.At a campaign rally hours after the mass murder in Pittsburgh, President Donald Trump told his supporters “we have to bring back the death penalty.” The federal government and 31 states already have the death penalty.When people do this, they should get the death penalty, and they shouldn’t have to wait years and years.There have been only three executions since the federal death penalty was reinstated, and the last one occurred in 2003.
