Death Penalty

Enough Is Enough!

Sorry Texas death row inmates. No more steak for you before being executed by Rick Perry.

SAN ANTONIO (Reuters) - The Texas prison system on Thursday abolished the time-honored tradition of offering an opulent last meal to condemned inmates before their executions, saying they would get standard prison fare instead.

"Enough is enough," state Senator John Whitmire wrote on Thursday to prison officials, prompting the move. "It is extremely inappropriate to give a person sentenced to death such a privilege. It's a privilege which the perpetrator did not provide to their victim."

Yeah! Persons sentenced to death are privileged enough as it is! They don't need a last meal!
