Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Checkyourfact.com: “FACT CHECK: No, The U.S. Navy JAG Corps Has Not Amended Its Method Of Execution”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

A post shared on Facebook purports the U.S. Navy Judge Advocate General (JAG) Corps has changed its method of execution from hanging to “a bullet to the brain.”

The claims stems from a satirical article. The Navy JAG Corps utilizes lethal injection in the case of capital punishment, not a firearm or firing squad.

The lengthy post purports that the JAG corps had recently changed its policies on how “future Deep State executions” would be conducted. “Anyone convicted of capitol crime and sentenced to death will get a bullet to the brain,” the post reads in part, claiming the decision was made “after weighing the costs” between hanging and the alleged new method.

The claim is untrue. The U.S. Navy has not made any mention of amending the method of military capital punishment on its website, Facebook or Twitter pages. Likewise, there are no releases from the White House suggesting the Navy or any branch of the military has made this change.
