A quick Google search can tell you what John Lennons last words were, but for anyone who isnt a celebrity, last words are either forgotten or unmemorable.
In the case of death row convicts in the state of Texas, they may not all be famous, but their words are being preserved forever.
Ever since the death penalty was reinstated in December 1982, last words have been recorded, and more recently theyve been posted on a penitentiary website.
Texas euthanizes more convicts than any other state in the U.S., having reached their monumental 500th execution on June 26.

Very tiresome when the DM uses the liberal slant.
Honestly, I have not killed anyone: The website that records the last word of EVERY prisoner executed in Texas even those who turn out to be innocent
Who won the Cowboys ga......
Didn't think so ...
I’ve seen it.It’s a site run by the State of Texas Dept of Corrections.A surprising number of the ones I’ve read contain admissions of guilt and responsibility along with requests for forgiveness by the killer to his victim’s family.There are some that say “I ain’t guilty”...”the DP is murder”...and worse...but many seem to own up.
You would think that the anti-death penalty people would be against handing the government more power....
But they are dumbarses
From the link: Jesse Hernandez: 'Go Cowboys!'. Hernandez was executed in 2012 for the death of a baby after hitting it over the head with a flashlight.
Figures that most murderers would be cowboys fans.
I’m sure when he got to the other side Tom Landry gave him a good swift whack upside the head for that.
BS. Finding the Lord in prison only brings to Him. She helped murder two people for a pos motorcycle striking both with an axe multiple times.
Why should even a genuinely repentant person not pay the temporal price for their crime?
But think about this. I feel that the only reason that she wasn't pardoned was because she was a female. Had she been in fact spared death, then every male death row inmate in Texas would have been filing a Supreme Court lawsuit alleging that Texas discriminated in how it applied the death penalty. It would have stopped executions in Texas for at least a decade..
See my #11..
I don’t believe it is harsh. The one thing that really wears me out is the defense that I was “drunk” or “on drugs”. Sorry you chose to use, you chose to murder, you get the chair.
Tucker was not just along for the ride, she participated and actually initiated the physical part of both murders. After they killed the man she came back in the room and axed him some more. She then left then left the room again to return and found the girl under the bed hiding. She attacked the girl and when her companion re-entered the room and held the woman, Tucker murdered her.
Here is a brief description of the murders (it does not do justice the crime scene, pay attention to Tuckers own admission in the last sentence):
After having spent the weekend doing drugs with her boyfriend Danny Garrett and their friends, Tucker and Garrett entered Jerry Dean’s home around 3 a.m. on Monday 14 June 1983 intending to steal Dean’s motorcycle. James Leibrant, a friend, went with them to Dean’s apartment complex. Leibrant reported that he went looking for Dean’s El Camino while Tucker and Garrett entered the apartment with a set of keys that Tucker claimed Shawn Dean had lost and Tucker had found.
During the burglary, Tucker and Garrett entered Dean’s bedroom, where Tucker sat on him. In an effort to protect himself, Dean grabbed Tucker above the elbows, whereupon Garrett intervened. Garrett struck Dean numerous times in the back of the head with a hammer he found on the floor. After hitting Dean, Garrett left the room to carry motorcycle parts out of the apartment. Tucker remained in the bedroom.
The blows Garrett had dealt Dean caused his head to become unhinged from his neck and his breathing passages to fill with fluid. He began making a “gurgling” sound characteristic of this type of injury. Tucker wanted to “stop him from making that noise” and attacked him with a pickaxe. Garrett then re-entered the room and dealt Dean a final blow in the chest.
Garrett left the bedroom again so as to continue loading Dean’s motorcycle parts into his Ranchero. Tucker was once again left in the room and only then noticed a woman who had hidden under the bed covers against the wall. The woman, Deborah Thornton, had met Dean at a party earlier that afternoon. Upon discovering Thornton, Tucker grazed her shoulder with the pickaxe. Thornton and Tucker began to struggle, but Garrett returned and separated them. Tucker proceeded to hit Thornton repeatedly with the pickaxe and then embedded the axe in her heart. Tucker would later tell friends and testify that she experienced intense multiple orgasms with each blow of the pickaxe.
Women in Texas are already not executed on an equal basis as men. That is hypocrisy at its best. Their are some women in this world that are just as bad as men or worse. If you are a woman and get executed in Texas you are really one low-life waste of space.
That was then. Nowadays they are Patriot fans.
Romans 13:4 still applies here. This is from the NIV:
“4 For the one in authority is Gods servant for your good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for rulers do not bear the sword for no reason. They are Gods servants, agents of wrath to bring punishment on the wrongdoer.”
She played the sympathy card well. But the truth is she was one evil woman. I want to believe her conversion. But I have to wonder how long would it have taken her to get back on drugs if she had ever been released.
I know she wasn’t asking to be released. Her reasoning was she could minister to others in prison. Apparently God didn’t feel like He needed her to do that.
Maybe God said “I’ve got enough converted preachers in here already.”
I’m not completely in favor of the death penalty. But if anyone deserved it, it’s David Wayne Spence. I knew people who knew him and they said they were afraid of him. He was pure evil. In his final words he says he didn’t kill anyone. But when he had a conversion in jail he told the cop who arrested him that he had been forgiven and would be set free. The cop explained that God might set him free in the next life but he wasn’t going to be set free in this one.
If you aren’t familiar with the case Spence was paid by a muslim to kill a teenage girl who teased him. Problem is, he killed the wrong girl. Vic Feazell gained my respect when he got both of them convicted. He held up a picture of the dead girl’s body and told the jury “This is the last picture her mother will ever see of her.” It didn’t take them long to come back with a guilty verdict. I was a personal friend of one of the assistant DAs. There’s a great book about the case called CARELESS WHISPERS.
One more thing, the cop was contacted by a “seer”. She gave him the description of the clothing two of the guys were wearing. The cop told them what they were wearing and one of them said “I knew someone seen us.”
Karla Faye Tucker killed a man with a pickaxe. Even though she found the Lord in prison, she still needed to be executed for her crimes. Our rewards are in heaven but we still must answer to man’s laws while we are on this Earth.
You’re correct about the statistics...my point was that had Bush pardoned the first female sentenced to death in what, decades..THAT factoid alone would have generated a ton of lawsuits..
