Here Are The First 5 People In Line for the First Federal Executions Since 2003

 Attorney General William Barr


Daniel Lewis Lee, a member of a white supremacist group, murdered a family of three, including an eight-year-old girl. After robbing and shooting the victims with a stun gun, Lee covered their heads with plastic bags, sealed the bags with duct tape, weighed down each victim with rocks, and threw the family of three into the Illinois bayou. On May 4, 1999, a jury in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Arkansas found Lee guilty of numerous offenses, including three counts of murder in aid of racketeering, and he was sentenced to death. Lee's execution is scheduled to occur on Dec. 9, 2019.

Lezmond Mitchell stabbed to death a 63-year-old grandmother and forced her nine-year-old granddaughter to sit beside her lifeless body for a 30 to 40-mile drive. Mitchell then slit the girl's throat twice, crushed her head with 20-pound rocks, and severed and buried both victims' heads and hands. On May 8, 2003, a jury in the U.S. District Court for the District of Arizona found Mitchell guilty of numerous offenses, including first degree murder, felony murder, and carjacking resulting in murder, and he was sentenced to death. Mitchell's execution is scheduled to occur on Dec. 11, 2019.


Wesley Ira Purkey violently raped and murdered a 16-year-old girl, and then dismembered, burned, and dumped the young girl's body in a septic pond. He also was convicted in state court for using a claw hammer to bludgeon to death an 80-year-old woman who suffered from polio and walked with a cane. On Nov. 5, 2003, a jury in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Missouri found Purkey guilty of kidnapping a child resulting in the child's death, and he was sentenced to death. Purkey's execution is scheduled to occur on Dec. 13, 2019.

Alfred Bourgeois physically and emotionally tortured, sexually molested, and then beat to death his two-and-a-half-year-old daughter. On March 16, 2004, a jury in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas found Bourgeois guilty of multiple offenses, including murder, and he was sentenced to death. Bourgeois' execution is scheduled to occur on Jan. 13, 2020.

Dustin Lee Honken shot and killed five people — two men who planned to testify against him and a single, working mother and her ten-year-old and six-year-old daughters. On Oct. 14, 2004, a jury in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Iowa found Honken guilty of numerous offenses, including five counts of murder during the course of a continuing criminal enterprise, and he was sentenced to death. Honken's execution is scheduled to occur on Jan. 15, 2020.

  1. Now watch, all the liberals are gonna come out of the closet and protest this saying they are so misunderstood and they are trying real hard to turn their lives around and have found Jesus... I say why wait, take them out back the courthouse and put a 9mm in the back of the head then bury them in an unmarked grave.

  2. And yet,there will be howls of protest by many in this country who oppose all executions.

    Lefties often claim that those who oppose abortion by saying that all life is precious are hypocritical if they support capital punishment. They conveniently leave out the issue of "innocent" life.

  3. They all seem to deserve death, soon. But I don't see why any of these are federal and not state crimes. Murder is normally state. Are there seriously no federal criminals who deserve death? I nominate joker zernaiev... Boston bomber.

  4. That is a tough post to read. Had to pause a few times. The degree of depravity. Feeding them to sharks is a quick death. Put each one in a tank with a only a "few" hungry piranhas. Slow, painful, excruciating. Air it live on TV or livestream it. Seriously.

  5. Indeed, murder is usually a state level offense. The Federals can get involved if the murder is part of interstate, or multi-state criminal enterprise. Individual states might not have the jurisdiction or the resoures necessary for such an operation or, in some cases, the political will. The Federals have lots of resources to draw from and a different perspective than the "locals".

    That is the good and bad of "federalism". If there is an "interstate hook", or now a civil rights aspect, the big machine can invite itself into your game.
