On July 14, 2020, the federal government restarted the practice of executions for the first time in 17 years. Over the span of four days, three men (Daniel Lewis Lee, Wesley Ira Purkey, and Dustin Lee Honken) were put to death at the United States Penitentiary in Terre Haute, Indiana.
Now, the government is intensifying its execution campaign, with four executions scheduled for August and September.
