The Last Words Of People About To Be Executed

‘Love’ Is the Most Common Word in Death Row Last Statements.

Before getting executed, every person is allowed to speak their last words, and this has been practiced for centuries now. But do their words really mean anything?

Most people are apologetic during this time, and before we pass away, we ask for the forgiveness and mercy of others. However, there are others who boast about their criminal records before execution. While in other cases, people are mentally ill and whatever they speak is nothing but gibberish. But then again, people say that the true nature of a person is revealed in these times.

Last rites before execution
In Christianity, the last rites, also known as the Commendation of the Dying, are the last prayers and ministrations given to an individual of the faith, when possible, shortly before death. They may be administered to those awaiting execution, mortally injured, or terminally ill.

Even though the persons life will be taken away soon, this chance to speak gives him a bit of power. You have probably noticed that during arguments or fights, everyone wants to be the last person to be able to speak, which they think gives them some sort of authority in the circumstance.

4.Carl Panzram

Carl Panzram was executed by hanging on September 5, 1930. The reasons are best explained by the man himself:

“In my lifetime I have murdered 21 human beings, I have committed thousands of burglaries, robberies, larcenies, arsons and, last but not least, I have committed sodomy on more than 1,000 male human beings. For all these things I am not in the least bit sorry.”
