Once Again, Texas Leads the Way

WGAL The Susquehanna Valley: Since 1819, capital punishment has been used in the state of Texas. As of September 13, 2011, 1,225 criminals -- all of six whom have been male -- have been executed. Texas has executed more inmates than any other state, despite the fact that two states (California and Florida) have a larger death row population than Texas.

This slideshow recounts 50 of the most intriguing last statements by inmates put to death. Please note that many of these can be several paragraphs in length, so we have pulled one or two sentences from each.
