News out of Texas is that Houston State Senator John Whitmire is hoping to abolish the death penalty.
Just kidding! In Texas? Are you insane? That's considered good, wholesome family entertainment in the Lone Star State. No, actually he's looking to abolish the last meal of the soon-to-be-offed.
And why you ask?
Because greedy bastard, Lawrence Brewer - finally snuffed last night for the 1998 dragging death of James Byrd in Jasper, TX - went a little overboard with his last meal request, which may I add, he didn't even EAT.
According to The Beaumont News, Brewer ordered:
Two chicken fried steaks smothered in gravy with sliced onions; a triple meat bacon cheeseburger with fixings on the side; a cheese omelet with ground beef, tomatoes, onions, bell peppers and jalapenos; a large bowl of fried okra with ketchup; one pound of barbecue with half a loaf of white bread; three fajitas with fixings; a meat lovers pizza; three root beers; one pint of Blue Bell vanilla ice cream; and a slab of peanut butter fudge with crushed peanuts.
Really, why go healthy and order the wheat bread at this stage in the game?
"Enough is enough," Whitmire wrote to the Texas Criminal Justice Division. "I am asking you to end this practice immediately or I am prepared to do so by statute next session."
Way to ruin it for everybody else, Brewer, you selfish douchebag.
