There are a few death penalty threads here, but I'm thinking that this discussion might be different, as the site: Death Row Information has listed all Texas offenders executed since 1982. The interesting portions of the list are: - "offender information," for each one a link to the bio and crime report that led to him or her being assigned an execution date and then executed - "last statement," the final words of the offender as s/he awaits lethal injection in the execution chamber, strapped to the table - "race," the ethnicity of the offender.. I find this interesting in that this particular data is required by the State of Texas for some reason Of note to me are the widely varying last statements. Some quite contrite, begging forgiveness from God, the victim's family, etc. Others professing innocence right up to the moment of death. Still others just thanking people who've supported them through the legal ordeals, etc. And then those who refused/declined to say a single word. .. etc.. (some "sound" drugged, as I read through the remarks.. making me wonder about requests for tranquilizers, etc). Macabre and interesting. "Just info" as the parent site states, but still very strange to read through elements of this list of people executed.
