J.W. Ledford, who is schueduled to be executed Tuesday, has asked for a high-calorie last meal with three kinds of meat.
The Department of Corrections on Thursday released Ledfords requested menu: filet mignon wrapped in bacon with pepper Jack cheese, large French fries, 10 chicken tenders with sauce, fried pork chop, bloomin onion, pecan pie with vanilla ice cream, sherbert and Sprite.
Ledford has filed a petition for clemency and the State Board of Pardons and Paroles will hear from his lawyers and advocates on Monday. He also has a complaint pending in federal court in Atlanta, saying a death by lethal injection could be horrific

Are you kidding? All that cholesterol will kill you!
He’ll never shed those last few pounds eating like that...
I can’t imagine having an appetite for anything knowing im about to be executed the next day.
Death-row inmates should be executed within 30 days. This lingering on death row and appeal after appeal just makes a mockery of the whole judicial system. And the last meal is like a middle finger to the victims. They should get the regular prison slop as their last meal.
I read a book a long time ago about the death penalty.
They almost never eat their last meals, the cooks say.
The cooks say they love it when they order something fancy or tasty cause they get to eat it later on lol.
Makes sense. Feeling in pit of stomach before dying probably not conducive to chomping food down.
Feed them Moochies school meals and not a damn thing more. That in itself might be a deterrent.
I’d like Martian beef and a potato grown in Atlantis.
He should have asked for a Diet Coke to go with it.
The man has good taste.
I’d give them a year to allow for a fair appeal process.
Then I’d order lights out.
If there needed to be a quicker review process, I think Congress should consider a capital crimes review court, to expedite these cases so justice can be served.
Families deserve closure, and the victims didn’t get one minutes worth of appeal.
Guard to the prisoner: If you’re not eating that steak, mind if I do?”
The whole legal system is a mockery of justice.
Give him the same thing his victim got, a shit sandwich!
25 years later we are putting this animal to sleep. shame on us.
When a convcted felon is going to die by execution and all he wants is a good last meal, the only humane thing to do is to give the guy scheduled to die best damned meal possible. I’m not into clemency by dirtbag politicians , I’m not a soft-sellinf for forgiveness. However, when a human being/perp is sentenced to die we should carry it out quickly.
FAKE article idea:
“The cafeteria workers submitted a petition to change the name of the Marin County Corrections Cafeteria to
‘Last Supper Rendezvous’. The petition was considered, but rejected as ‘Culturally inappropriate and inefficiently secular.’
the price of filet mignon back in the early 90’s was way cheaper than it is today.
Moochelle Obama will be most unhappy.
It’s got a long tradition. In many ways giving the condemned a last meal is symbolic of how it is nothing personal. It is only the carrying out of the law. And by accepting the meal, the one soon to be executed is accepting his or her fate and relinquishing any blame on the judicial process.
