  • ✪ Top 10 Scary Last Words From Prison Inmates - Part 3
  • ✪ Dead Wrong, The John Evans III Story '84- Execution


Death row inmates are given one last opportunity to say their final words. This opportunity is usually given at the absolute last minutes just before the prisoner is executed. So here are the top 10 scary last words from prison inmates – part 3. How’s it going YouTube? I’m your host Landon Dowlatsingh. (Add intro) If you want to check out the first two parts to this series, click right over here and I’ll be sure to put the links in the description box down below. Let’s get this creepy list started in at number 10 with Gary Gilmore. During a robbery, Gilmore shot a man twice in the head even though he was cooperating with his demands. The next day, he attempted to rob a motel and he ended up fatally shooting the manger in the head. He confessed to the police that he killed two people in cold blood but he was only tried for one of the murders because there wasn’t enough physical evidence against him for the other murder. What the heck? If someone admits to a crime, isn’t that enough? The judge sentenced him to the death penalty and he had a choice of being executed by hanging or shot by a firing squad. I guess he’s a fan of irony because he chose to get killed by the firing squad. And his infamous last words were “let’s do it.” Those definitely wouldn’t be my final words. I’d probably be screaming, “Let’s not do it!” I think Nike must’ve been inspired by his final words though. Climbing up this list in at number 9 we are talking about Erskine Childers. Now I know what you must be thinking…everyone on this list must’ve committed a horrible crime in order to get the death penalty. Well he might be our one exception to this rule. Childers was actually an Irish author who wrote a lot of successful novels but he also had a little bit of a dark side. He would smuggle guns into Ireland with his sailing yacht until he was caught and sentenced to death. Wow seems pretty harsh but this was during the late 1800s. But what makes this even worse, he filed an appeal and it was pending when they executed him which is highly illegal today. So before he was executed by a firing squad he said, “Take a step forward, lads. It will be easier that way.” I don’t blame him for being bitter. I think this was a pretty cruel and unusal punishment for his crime. Number 8 we have Jimmy Glass who said “I’d rather be fishing.” Yeah no shit. I think I would rather be in a cave of sleeping grizzly bears or at a One direction concert than be on the chopping block about to die. It’s like Jimmy doesn’t really give a shit that he’s about to die. I think he must’ve come to terms with his death because those definitely aren’t inspiring or moving last words. I wonder what he picked to be engraved on his tomb stone. “I’d rather be alive?” But before you start feeling sorry for him, just know that he was a convicted murderer, so he had it coming. John Avalos Alba brings us to number 7. He was handed down the death penalty for fatally shooting his wife while he was out on bail for a child molestation charge. He was finally executed by lethal injection on May 25, 2010. I bet the judge who set his bail was feeling really guilty for not setting it higher. So, for his final statement on earth he said this eerie line. “Okay warden, lets do it. I love y’all. I can taste it already. I am starting to go.” Ugh that gives me the chills. I read that you can feel the cold rush of the lethal injection piercing through your veins. I don’t know whether or not that’s true but I guess I don’t really care to know. And now, in at our number 6 spot we have really odd last words. James French was a convicted murderer and he was actually the last person to be executed under Oklahoma’s death penalty. He was a pretty violent man. He was already convicted to life in prison for murdering a man who had picked him up from hitchhiking but he had the desire to die. So that’s when he brutally murdered his cellmate in order to get the death penalty. As he was prepped to be executed by the electric chair, he came up with these infamous last words… “How’s this for a headline? French Fries”. Do you guys get it? His last name was French and he was about to get “fried” by the electric chair. I know I shouldn’t be laughing but that’s pretty clever. From one scary but clever final statement to another. In at number 5 is George Appel. He said “Well gentlemen, you are about to see a baked appel.” I would like to think that if I was given the opportunity for a final statement I would say something clever like this. But it’s also pretty morbid if you think about it. So actually, maybe I would use that opportunity to say something wise. Well thankfully I don’t really have to think about it because I don’t intend to ever be on death row. But anyways George Appel was originally sentenced to death for committing an evil murder. So, I guess he had it coming. And now number 4 brings us to John Rook. In 1980 he kidnapped a 25-year-old nurse in a parking lot where she worked. She was taken to an empty field where she was abused and murdered by Rook. After the killing, he ran her body over with his car. Wow, was that even necessary? After he was sentenced to death, he made several appeals but they all failed. So on the day of his execution he said “Freedom, freedom at last! It’s been a good one.” Well I hope you enjoy your freedom and I’m glad you won’t be able to hurt anyone ever again. Torrey Twane McNabb takes the number 3 spot on this list. He was executed by lethal injection for killing a police officer back in 1997. His lawyers attempted to make an appeal stating that the state’s execution method was cruel and unusual. But the judge was pretty firm and declined their appeals. So during his final minutes he said, “Mom, sis, look at my eyes. I got no tears. I am unafraid. To the state of Alabama, I hate you…I hate you. I hate you.” And as the procedure began he raised his middle fingers to the police officers and died in that position. Wow, what a honourable way to go out…not. And now in at number 2 is Carlos Granados. During a heated argument with his girlfriend, he grabbed a large kitchen knife and stabbed her 3-year-old son. Whoa, talk about anger management issues. And he also stabbed his girlfriend 30 times but she survived and was able to testify against him in court. For his final meal he requested fried chicken, pizza and a soft drink. And right before he was given the lethal injection he said, “Kathy, you know I never meant to hurt you. I gave you everything, and that’s what made me so angry. But I never meant to hurt you. I’m sorry.” Well, I think it’s a little bit too late for an apology. I hope she didn’t even show up to his execution. Topping off this morbid list in at number 1 we have Peter Manuel. He is actually known as Scotland’s worst serial killer ever. He was convicted of murdering a total of seven people between the years 1956-1958. But it is believed that he killed many more people. He was hanged atGlasgow’s Barlinnie Prison and he was one of the last people to have been executed in these gallows ever since the death penalty was over turned. But before he stepped out to his death he said “Turn up the radio and I’ll go quietly.” There’s just something about that statement that gives me the chills and for some reason I hear necks breaking. I know, that sounds pretty weird right. Well there you guys have it
