Last Statements of Inmates Executed in Texas

I’ve excerpted one from Charles Nealy who was executed on March 20, 2007 but there are hundreds more here:

Ya’ll know I love you, you too Ward. You have been a good friend. You are a good investigator. Doug, I thank you for coming from Michigan. Chris and David, I love you. Thank them for their support Doug. Debra, James, I’m not crying so you don’t cry. Don’t be sad for me. I’m going to be with God, Allah, and Momma. I’m gonna ask dad why didn’t give you away at your wedding. Randy Greer, my little brother, I’ll be watching you, stay out of trouble. All my nieces and nephews, I love you all. Sammie, Vincent, and Yolanda, I will be watching over you all.

The reason it took them so long is because they couldn’t find a vein. You know how I hate needles – I used to stay in the Doctor’s Office. Tell the guys on Death Row that I’m not wearing a diaper. I can’t think of anything else. You all stay strong. Now you can put this all aside. Don’t bury me in the prison cemetery. Bury me right beside momma. Don’t bury me to the left of dad, bury me on the right side of mom.

Kim Schaeffer, you are a evil woman. You broke the law. The judges and courts helped you and you didn’t have all the facts. When you look at the video, you know you can’t see anyone. You overplayed your hand looking for something against me and to cover it up the State is killing me. I’m not mad or bitter though. I’m sad that you are stuck here and have to go through all of this. I am going somewhere better. My time is up. Let me get ready to make my transition. Doug, don’t forget Marcy.


    What struck me about this is that they found his expletive objectionable and deleted it from his last statement, but didn’t find killing him objectionable. But isn’t that the way the religious right works — gets in a tizzy about sex on tv (Janet Jackson’s breast gives my kid nightmares!) but has no problem with the bloody violence in Iraq or the cold-blooded murder of those sentenced to death.

  2. Shreeram, is Texas now the religious right? How did you come by your information that they don’t care about bllody violence in Iraq? I know they don’t have any problem with the bloody violence in Darfur, Solmalia etc, but I thought that’s why “they” went into Iraq, cause they had a problem.

  3. Honestly,why are these animals given a last meal or last statement…Some of these last meals sound like a feast for 4 or 5 people. Their victims didn’t get the benefit of a last feast,and their last words were probably statements and screams of terror as they were murdered. Death Row Inmates are the worst of our society and therefore,feeding them or their last words are truly irrelevant. Burn in hell cretins.
