"There's A GOP Plan For An Execution Spree If Trump Wins The White House"


Buried on page 554 of Project 2025 is a directive to execute every remaining person on federal death row — and dramatically expand the use of the death penalty. - HuffPost

What is Project 2025? How many people are on death row? Which states executes the most people? What is the percentage of people executed are White, Black or Brown?

Which states have the most executions?

The Census contains information on 9,820 death sentences imposed on 8,842 defendants. It includes the name, race, and gender of each defendant, along with the region, state, county, and year in which the sentence was imposed.

All live should matter equally

“When it comes to executions the data show that white lives matter more than Black lives. Executions carried out over the 50 years were six times more likely to involve a white victim than only to involve victims who were Black. Defendants of color were disproportionately likely to be wrongfully convicted of capital offenses, took longer to be exonerated, and comprised an overwhelming majority of the likely intellectually disabled people who continue to be executed in the U.S. despite the constitutional prohibition against that practice. - Robert Dunham, Death Penalty Information Center (DPIC) Executive Director.

Fewer than 1.1% of counties account for half of death row. Thirty-year-old cases are coming up for execution that wouldn’t even be capitally prosecuted today. And when you look behind the data, the features that best characterize executions — race of victim, vulnerable defendants, what side of the county line the crime occurred and when it was tried, and the lack of meaningful judicial process — are all illegitimate bases to administer the law. The Court said America wasn’t able to administer the death penalty fairly or reliably a half century ago. The data show we still can’t do it today.

The 2% Death Penalty

Since the time of that report, the death penalty has grown even more geographically concentrated, with 34 counties — 1.1% of all U.S. counties — accounting for more than half of everyone on death row. Just 75 counties (2.4%) account for half of all death sentences imposed in the last 50 years. Just five counties — Harris (Houston), Dallas, Tarrant (Fort Worth), and Bexar (San Antonio) counties in Texas and Oklahoma County (Oklahoma City) — account for more than 20% of all the executions in the U.S. in the past half-century. - DPIC

Death penalty executions by race and state

Trump's killing spree

During the final six months of Trump’s presidency, his administration carried out an unprecedented execution spree, killing 13 people on federal death row and ending a 17-year de facto federal execution moratorium. Trump has openly fantasized about executing drug dealers and human traffickers. He reportedly suggested that officials who leak information to the press should be executed, too. And behind the scenes, there’s a team of pro-Trump conservatives who are pushing for a second Trump term that involves even more state-sponsored killing than the first.

Police killings target minorities.

Project 2025

A coalition effort by conservative groups known as Project 2025 released an 887-page document that lays out policy goals and recommendations for each part of the federal government. Buried on page 554 is a directive to execute every remaining federal death row prisoner — and to persuade the Supreme Court to expand the types of crimes that can be punished with death sentences. Gene Hamilton, the author of the transition playbook’s Department of Justice chapter, wrote that the next conservative administration should “do everything possible to obtain finality” for every prisoner on federal death row. - HuffPo
