Should California resume executions? State moves a step closer
California moved a step closer to resuming executions after a five-year ban.
The state is scheduled on Sept. 29 to execute Albert Greenwood Brown, convicted of raping and murdering a 15-year-old girl in 1980. But a federal judge could still delay executions, and another inmate has challenged a new lethal injection protocol.
There has been much debate about whether the type of execution California administers is cruel. The state has remade he execution process and wants to resume the practice.
