The federal government will resume executing death-row inmates after nearly two decades without doing so,the Department of Justice announced on Thursday.

美国司法部(Departmentof Justice)周四宣布,联邦政府将在近20年没有执行死刑的情况下,重新执行死刑。

Attorney General William Barr directed the Bureau of Prisons to schedule the executions of five inmates convicted of murder and other crimes.The executions have been scheduled for December 2019 and January 2020.

总检察长威廉·巴尔指示监狱管理局安排处决五名被判犯有谋杀罪和其他罪行的囚犯。死刑定于201912月和20201月执行。

The department also announced a new execution protocol,replacing the three-drug cocktail previously used in federal executions with the single drug,pentobarbital.

司法部还宣布了一项新的执行方案,用单一药物戊巴比妥替代联邦执行死刑时使用的三种药物混合物。

The last federal execution was carried out in 2003.There are 62 individuals on federal death row,according to a tracker maintained by the Death Penalty Information Center.

上一次联邦执行死刑是在2003年。根据美国死刑信息中心保护协会的数据,联邦死囚牢房里有62个人。

The Supreme Court outlawed state and federal death penalty laws in the 1972 decision Furman v.Georgia.The decision invalidated the laws then on the books,but did not outlaw the death penalty under all circumstances,leading states and the federal government to draft new legislation.

最高法院在1972年的《弗曼诉佐治亚州案宣布州和联邦的死刑法律为非法。这一决定使当时的法律无效,但并没有在任何情况下宣布死刑为非法,导致各州和联邦政府起草了新的立法。

The federal death penalty was reinstated in 1988,and expanded by Congress in 1994.No federal executions took place,however,until 2001,according to to the Bureau of Prisons website.

联邦死刑于1988年恢复,并于1994年由国会扩大。然而,根据监狱管理局的数据,直到2001年,联邦政府才执行过死刑。

"Congress has expressly authorized the death penalty through legislation adopted by the people's representatives in both houses of Congress and signed by the President,"Barr said in a statement."Under Administrations of both parties,the Department of Justice has sought the death penalty against the worst criminals,including these five murderers,each of whom was convicted by a jury of his peers after a full and fair proceeding."

巴尔在一份声明中说:"国会已经通过由国会两院人民代表通过并由总统签署的立法明确授权死刑。""在两党执政期间,司法部一直寻求对最恶劣的罪犯判处死刑,其中包括这五名谋杀犯。在经过充分和公正的诉讼程序之后,他们每个人都被陪审团判定有罪。"

"The Justice Department upholds the rule of law—and we owe it to the victims and their families to carry forward the sentence imposed by our justice system,"he said.

他说:"司法部维护法治ーー我们有责任为受害者及其家属执行我们司法系统的判决。"

Executions have been scheduled for Daniel Lewis Lee,Lezmond Mitchell,Wesley Ira Purkey,Alfred Bourgeois,and Dustin Lee Honken,according to the Justice Department.In its release,the Justice Department provided brief summaries of the crimes committed by each inmate.

据司法部说,已经安排了对丹尼尔·李、莱斯蒙德·米切尔、韦斯利·艾拉·珀基、阿尔弗雷德·布尔乔亚和达斯汀··霍肯的处决。在其中,司法部提供了每个犯人所犯罪行的简要概述。

In a statement,Ruth Friedman,the director of the Federal Capital Habeas Project,said it was a"pervasive myth"that the federal death penalty was applied to only the worst offenders who committed a narrow class of crimes.

联邦资本人身保护项目主任鲁思·弗里德曼(Ruth Friedman)在一份声明中表示,联邦死刑只适用于犯有少数罪行的最严重罪犯,这是一个"无处不在的神话"

"In fact,the federal death penalty is arbitrary,racially-biased,and rife with poor lawyering and junk science.Problems unique to the federal death penalty include over-federalization of traditionally state crimes and restricted judicial review,"Friedman said."These and other concerns,including troubling questions about the new execution protocol,are why there must be additional court review before the federal government can proceed with any execution."

"事实上,联邦死刑是武断的,带有种族偏见的,充斥着糟糕的律师和垃圾科学。联邦死刑的独特问题包括传统的州犯罪的过度联邦化和限制司法审查,"弗里德曼说。"这些问题以及其他一些令人担忧的问题,包括有关新执行协议的令人不安的问题,是联邦政府在执行任何死刑之前必须进行额外法院审查的原因。"

The Justice Department said each of the inmates had"exhausted their appellate and post-conviction remedies,and currently no legal impediments prevent their executions."The executions will take place at the U.S.Penitentiary Terre Haute,in Terre Haute,Indiana.

司法部表示,每名囚犯都"用尽了上诉和定罪后的补救措施,目前没有任何法律障碍阻止他们执行死刑。"死刑将在TerreHaute的美国TerreHaute监狱执行。

The Justice Department said that additional executions will be scheduled at a later date.

司法部表示,更多的死刑将在晚些时候执行。

The announcement comes as a number of Democrats running for president have promised to do away with the death penalty altogether.In 2016,the Democratic Party made abolishing the death penalty a part of its official platform.

宣布这一消息的同时,一些参加总统竞选的民主党人已经承诺完全废除死刑。2016年,民主党将废除死刑作为其官方纲领的一部分。
