I was looking for ingredients for a batch of beer I'm going to brew for my wife. After typing terms into a search engine, I stumbled upon a Texas Dept. of Criminal Justice web site that includes a list of executed death row inmates' last meal requests. After being amused by some of the requested items, I hit the "Offender Information" links and went to the reports of their crimes, including their photographs. The pictures and the descriptions of the crimes were chilling. I'm going to double-check the locks on the doors and windows before going to bed tonight:

I noticed that none of them requested alchoholic beverages. Maybe they weren't allowed. Interestingg

One request was: "Venison steak, baked potato, Lite beer & Camel cigarettes (Alcohol & tobacco prohibited by TDCJ policy)." I noticed that one prisoner requested bubble-gum, which is also prohibited b TDCJ policy. Go figure.

have the same idea about locks. Funny how all those I looked at had around 7-9 years of education. It also seemed that there were more whites convicted recently.

the thing that struck me is that there is a little star at the top of the list which ses: the actual meal served could actually be different.

I am starting to wonder if they ever got anything else other than a cheeseburger, fries, lettuce+tomato and ice tea. But man all that food sounds so good. Imagine 2 pounds of crispy bacon, hehe.

I'm locking my doors too. Add to that: not selling anything through the paper, not getting a job as a clerk in any retail store, not dealing in drugs, and no way as an arms dealer.

I did a lot of work in prisons. One, you really find some big people in prison. Second, they are not educated, but they are not dumb. Third, they are nice people in the main, however once you get to know them they are really scary people. Most of these people if let loose have to go back to crime because they cannot find jobs, have a trade or education. The recidivism is really high - most prisoners will commit crime again!
