Woman Becomes Texas’ 500th Execution [VIDEO]

Protestors of death penalty protesters chanted, clapped and sang Wednesday as Dallas County convicted murderer Kimberly McCarthy became the 500th Texas inmate executed since the state reactivated the death penalty 31 years ago.

She was executed for the July 1997 robbery and murder of her Lancaster neighbor, Dorothy Booth, 71. New York does not have capital punishment as of 1963.

But, what do you think? Is the death penalty OK? Or is it completely unconstitutional?

I don’t know if I have a distinct opinion on this one, but I can tell you I do agree with this decision in Texas.

Texas, in 2011, finally got rid of the inmate “last meal”, where the inmate was granted anything they wanted to eat the night before they were to be executed. That all ended when one man requested a last meal that included: two chicken-fried steaks with gravy and sliced onions; a triple-patty bacon cheeseburger; a cheese omelet with ground beef, tomatoes, onions, bell peppers and jalapeños; a bowl of fried okra with ketchup; one pound of barbecued meat with half a loaf of white bread; three fajitas; a meat-lover’s pizza; one pint of Blue Bell Ice Cream; a slab of peanut-butter fudge with crushed peanuts and three root beers.

Now THAT is a bunch of bull.
