On the off chance that you were on death line, what might you ask for your last dinner?
On the off chance that I were on death line, I would decline a “last feast.”
From the jail framework’s perspective, the entire thought appears like an obsolete method for “rubbing it in,” in a manner of speaking – we’re going to slaughter you, however first we’ll give you one final opportunity to taste what you’ll be lost for forever!
A few states fundamentally confine your choices. In Florida, a last supper must be under $40 and must be discovered locally.
In Oklahoma, a last feast must be under $15 dollars. That is not in any case enough for a better than average steak! In Texas, the custom was as of late nullified when Lawrence Russell Brewer, a white supremacist indicted dragging a dark man to death along a black-top street with a pickup truck, asked for a plate of two pan fried steaks with sauce and cut onions, a triple-patty bacon cheeseburger, a cheddar omelet with ground hamburger, tomatoes, onions, chime peppers, jalapeños, a dish of fricasseed okra with ketchup, a pound of grilled meat with half of a roll of white bread, a part of three fajitas, a meat-beau’s pizza (finished with pepperoni, ham, meat, bacon, and wiener), a half quart of Blue Bell, a serving of frozen yogurt, a chunk of nutty spread fudge with smashed peanuts, and a serving proportionate to three root lagers.
At the point when the nourishment arrived, Brewer wasn’t eager. Texas disdained this.
I don’t comprehend what the first motivation behind this custom was, and I don’t realize what it’s intended to finish today. On the off chance that our expectation is charitableness towards killers, the goal doesn’t tally unless we satisfy demands without conditions. On the off chance that we will likely make some sort of humorous circumstance that prompts regret on the killer’s part, the aim is savage and, if LRB is any sign, insufficient.
In any case, I’d can’t. Some way or another, diminishing on a vacant stomach sounds more judicious than biting the dust with an entire one.
