The Green Line is film American written and directed by Frank Darabont, released in 1999. This film is based on the memories of a former prison guard. Among the convicts.

This film received four Oscar nominations 2000, and one at Golden Globes.

The death penalty was reinstated after being suspended for a decade or so from 1967 to 1977. It had been suspended after being declared "cruel and inhumane" by the Supreme Court of the United States Constitution. It has only been restored in 38 states out of 50 in the United States. In 2001 the United States exceeded the threshold of 756 executed. In 2005, the death penalty was abolished for minors under 15 years old. In the United States 37 states to date have restored the death penalty and 12 have abolished it to know Alaska, North Dakota, Hawaii, Iowa, Maine, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Rhodes Island, Vermont, West Virginia , Wisconsin and a 13th joined them in 2007 namely New Jersey. Of 37 states that have reinstated the death penalty since 1977, only 34 have also resumed executions. Since 1977 these 34 states have executed 1474 men, 16 women, 22 minors and 33 foreigners. Only 3 states that reinstated the death penalty were not executed, namely Kansas, New Hampshire and New York.

The state of Texas with 550 executions is the "first" far ahead of the others followed by Virginia with only 113 executions. In the United States four methods were used: lethal injection is the main with 1298 executed, followed by the electric chair with 158 executed. Two are no longer used to end a person's life, there is the gas chamber with 11 executed and the hanging with only 3 executed. At the end of 2007, lethal injection operations were suspended.
