25 Memorable Last Words From Condemned Criminals

Society has an obsession with bad men. Even our superheros have started turning into brooding and dark fellows that have mysterious pasts and questionable bad streaks. But that is reality. In some ways we can all relate to the “bad thing”. Who hasn’t been put on time-out at some point in their lives. Thankfully, most of us don’t go too far past the occasional scolding or possible fight with our siblings, but that is not always the case. We all know that people can go over the edge. Typically, this involves murder, at least when we are talking about the worst possible offenses. And perhaps not surprisingly, our list today will be dominated almost exclusively by people that were condemned to death by the court for having killed others. And that is where our list comes in. As a society we are obsessed with the grim and the macabre. Did you know that many people idolize mass murders and send them fan mail the same way teenage girls idolize Justin Bieber? It’s a terrifying phenomenon but it’s real. Our society is backwards in this way. We detest the things they have done, but their lives interest us immensely. Why did they turn out the way they did? We may never know, but maybe what they say can give us a little hint. These are 25 Memorable Last Words From Condemned Criminals.
