Into Resuming Federal Executions - Into America Podcast – Ep.

On July 13th, Daniel Lewis Lee is set to be the first prisoner executed by the federal government in 17 years. Executions have decreased on the federal and state level since their height in the 1990s, and for the first time in decades, a majority of Americans support life imprisonment over the death penalty. But Attorney General Bill Barr announced last month that four inmates would be scheduled for execution in rapid succession starting next week.
On the latest episode of Into America, host Trymaine Lee speaks with Yale Law professor Miriam Gohara, who spent years representing clients on death row for the NAACP Legal Defense Fund. They discuss the long complicated history of the death penalty in America and how demands made by leaders of the movement for Black lives are tied to the fight against capital punishment. https://link.chtbl.com/obvkRMCh?sid=ep38» Subscribe to NBC News: http://nbcnews.to/SubscribeToNBC
