Top 6 Last Words of Prisoners on the Death Row
They were cruel murderers, rapists, criminals and truly dangerous people who were waiting their death penalty. Not that this article wants to glorify their deeds, but they had some really interesting last words before they were executed. Some were simply ready, while other wanted some particular food before their death.
#1. Let’s do it
No, this is not the famous slogan that the sport clothing company uses (they got inspired from the prisoner’s words much later). Gary Gilmore was a convicted Utah murderer who was demanding his own death. Gary had killed two people in two days during the summer of ’76. In that year the American state Utah had two options for execution, hanging and firing squad and Gary chose to be shot. “Let’s do it” were the words that Gary said right before he was executed. Immediately after his death, Gary’s corneas were donated to awaiting recipients, per his request. Gary became somewhat of a cultural icon, his words being used in popular song, a film and a TV show. But most notably, Gary’s parting words were accommodated for Nike’s tagline, “Just Do It.”
