Death Row Murderer Requests Huge Last Meal Before Execution

Death Row Murderer Requests Huge Last Meal Before Execution

There's something oddly fascinating about hearing what death row inmates request for their final meals.

Sure, it's pretty morbid, but it also gives us a glimpse into who they really are.

You may have heard of famous instances, such as Ted Bundy who requested nothing so was served the standard death row meal and ate none of it, or that guy who supposedly asked for a bible and then devoured it - badass, but unfortunately not true.

Neither of those two are particularly appetising, but one death row inmate in Georgia just put his order in for one of the most epic last meals we've ever seen.

Keith Tharpe, aged 59, is scheduled to be executed by lethal injection next week for the murder of his sister-in-law almost 30 years ago.

Before he breathes his last breath, Tharpe is due to sit down to a feast of three spicy chicken breasts, a roast beef sandwich with sauce, a fish sandwich, potato wedges, onion rings, apple pie, and a vanilla milkshake.

Not a bad selection at all.

The 59-year-old will be the 48th inmate put to death by lethal injection in Georgia since the US Supreme Court reinstated the death penalty in 1976.

His legal team obtained a signed affidavit from one of the jurors, Barney Gattie, in which he said: "I have observed there are two types of black people: 1. Black folks and 2. N******."

"Like I said, the Freemans were nice black folks. If they had been the type Tharpe is, then picking between life or death for Tharpe wouldn't have mattered so much. My feeling is, what would be the difference?" the affidavit reads.

"As it was, because I knew the victim and her husband's family, and knew them all to be good black folks, I felt Tharpe, who wasn't in the 'good' black folks category in my book, should get the electric chair for what he did.

"Some of the jurors voted for death because they felt that Tharpe should be an example to other blacks who kill blacks, but that wasn't my reason. The others wanted blacks to know they weren't going to get away with killing each other. After studying the bible, I have wondered if black people even have souls."
