    Texas records the last words of its condemned prisoners. They have 500 on file. The most recent, the woman they executed named McCarthy, Kimberly Lagayle, was this:

    "I just wanted to say thanks to all who have supported me over the years: Reverend Campbell, for my spiritual guidance; Aaron, the father of Darrian, my son; and Maurie, my attorney. Thank you everybody. This is not a loss, this is a win. You know where I am going. I am going home to be with Jesus. Keep the faith. I love ya'll. Thank you, Chaplain."

    One interesting tidbit of info also included is the race of the victim. McCarthy's victim was a white female.

    An elderly white female, no?

    Anyway, good thing I don't believe in Jesus. If that's the kind of company he keeps, I'll be safer without him! :hide:

    The only thing I want to say is that I appreciate the hospitality that you guys have shown me and the respect; and the last meal was really good. That is about it. Thank you guys for being there and giving me a little bit of spiritual guidance and support.

    Yeah. The only statement I want to make is that I am an innocent man - convicted of a crime I did not commit. I have been persecuted for 12 years for something I did not do. From God's dust I came and to dust I will return - so the earth shall become my throne. I gotta go, road dog. I love you Gabby. [Remaining portion of statement omitted due to profanity.]

    Ok. I guess I'll address the Morgan family. Mrs. Morgan, the sister from the trial. Thirteen or fourteen years ago, I had a non-caring attitude at the time. I'm sorry for shooting your son down at that particular robbery. Politicians say that this brings closure. But my death doesn't bring your son back - it doesn't bring closure. I wish that I could do more, but I can't. I hope this brings you peace. Ursula, Manon, and Irene, I love y'all - take it easy. They've gotta do this thing. I'm still warm from the pepper gas. I love you. I'm ready to go. Call my mom and tell her that this particular process is over. Tell all the brothers to keep their heads up, eyes toward the sky.

    See, now that is bullshit they omitted the remainder of the guy's words because of profanity. So, I did some research on the guy's last words. From the accounts I get from witnesses, those were his last words, however, Texas omitted this:

    "I hope you rot in hell, bitch."

    Witnesses say he directed that part to his ex-wife.

    I just wanted to say why would Howard Stern ruin his legacy. AGT is such a crap show and why would Stern stoop to this level. I assume that he is desperate for attention and is willing to sacrifice dignity for relevance. I honestly believe he wears a hair hat. Who has black hair and no grey color at the age of 60. In closing, goodbye everyone and baba boo e to you all.

    This was an interesting thread in the Bar and they never scream we let them pass too humanely.

    They should go out in the same way as the victims.

    It should be the victim or victim's family choice of means of death.

    If found guilty, they should let the victims family pass the sentence.

    Im anti death penalty, only because I don't trust modern politicians to do things correctly. They're all in it to hold the office, not to do the job. I say build island prisons, force them to do hard labor, develop a product and generate revenue. Make them earn their keep.

    Some of the more conservative prisons actually do well in this regard. The fucking ACLU crowd fucks it up.

    My father had a similar idea; he said, bring back Devil's Island. You don't want to live by the rules of our society; fine. Go live there, and "good luck" to you .....

    There are no atheists in a fox hole. When the chips are down and you are faced with certain death, everyone grasps for some last chance. No matter how cool and edgy you think you are, you will too.

    Whether its true in this case or not. How many innocent men have we killed because our justice system is severely flawed, biased, corrupt and purchased?

    If it's one it's one too many.

    I agree we need to make sure that doesn't happen - but the verified number right now is zero.
