Bloomington residents Deb Fish and Glenda Breeden joined a small group to protest in Bloomington against the execution of federal inmate Orlando Hall in Terre Haute, Indiana.
Hall’s execution was delayed, but then carried out Thursday night. The federal execution is the 8th this year after a 17-year hiatus on federal executions ended in July 2020.
The U.S. Department of Justice issued a press release on the execution:
Three more current federal inmates on death row are scheduled to be put to death by the end of 2020, including the first woman executed since federally since 1953 (67-years-ago):
A total of 15 prisoners have been executed by both states and the federal government in 2020.
