(CNN)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.
Attorney General William Barr and the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs pushed the rule forward. Once the approved amendment is published in the Federal Register -- which could come as early as Friday, according to a Justice Department official -- it will become effective in 30 days.

It ultimately may be moot since President-elect Joe Biden campaigned to abolish the federal death penalty and four of the five inmates scheduled for execution already have their manner selected -- lethal injection.

The Justice Department did not provide comment on why the new rule was made.

The firing squad is too merciful.

I'm against capital punishment now. To big of a chance of an irreversible error.

In in favor of life in prison in solitary confinement. Perfectly legal in the United States.
That is the way it is in most of the Free World

But the US aligns with the Muslim world and Communist China and N Korea in eye for an eye justice

The "rush" is due to the high degree of probability that the end of the Trump Era may be nigh.

Last chance.
Last chance to kill people

God forbid they may live
Just a late term abortion, you should be all for that.
<sob> But....but.....What about ABORTION?
But....but.....What about ABORTION?
You know what the difference is between abortion and execution?


the person executed has actually committed a crime to be punished for, and been found guilty by a jury of their peers.

a fetus is 'executed' merely for existing.

Japan isn't the Free World? Neither is Singapore or India or Indonesia?

For being a so called burden.

Japan rarely executes
India and Singapore are not bastions of human rights

Can they at least let them smoke a cigarette before they shoot them?
