California to shut down death penalty, relieving 737 death row inmates
Newsom plans to sign an executive order Wednesday morning granting reprieves to all 737 Californians awaiting executions – a quarter of the country’s death row inmates.
Newsom says the death penalty system has discriminated against mentally ill defendants and people of color. It has not made the state safer and has wasted billions of taxpayer dollars, according to prepared remarks Newsom plans to deliver Wednesday morning when he signs the order.
The moratorium will be in place for the duration of Newsom’s time in office, the governor’s office said. After that, a future governor could decide to resume executions.

In the Linux kernel through 4.20.10, af_alg_release() in crypto/af_alg.c neglects to set a NULL value for a certain structure member, which leads to a use-after-free in sockfs_setattr.

42-year old Muslim executed in Alabama
Ray had argued Alabama's execution procedure favors Christian inmates because a Christian chaplain employed by the prison typically remains in the execution chamber during a lethal injection, but the state would not let his imam be present.
Man, you were executed in Alabama, a state located in the Deep South. Of course Christians are privileged, they don't care for "dem Muzzies!". Did you expect anything else from a state that is well-known for its cotton-pickin' enslavement of black people?
Prison system spokesman Bob Horton said Ray was visited by his imam both Wednesday and Thursday. Ray's imam, Yusef Maisonet, watched the execution from an adjoining witness room. There was no Christian chaplain in the chamber.

Sri Lanka prepares for mass executions after 43-year hiatus
The country's justice minister told parliament Tuesday that legal and administrative procedures for the five condemned Sri Lankans were completed last month, paving the way for the first hangings since 1976.
Following a visit to the Philippines last month, Sirisena reaffirmed his plans to replicate his counterpart Rodrigo Duterte's "success" in dealing with illegal drugs.
To eradicate great parts of your own population on purpose can hardly be called a success in fighting drug abuse. Moreover, you don't do harm to anyone but you when you do drugs. Thus, why fight it with such a fierce policy? What do you expect to change by approaching it this way? There are too many questions unanswered when it comes to drug indictments.
