Law Triumphs Over Lawler

Convicted killer Gregory Paul Lawler was executed by the state of Georgia tonight for the murder of an Atlanta police officer in 1997. According to witnesses, Lawler shot two police officers without provocation as they were escorting Lawler’s drunken girlfriend home after Lawler and the girl had a dispute. Lawler used an AR-15 loaded with body armor-piercing bullets during the crime that left one office dead and another critically injured.

For his last meal, Lawler ordered a rib eye steak, a baked potato with sour cream, asparagus, dinner rolls with butter, French onion soup, strawberries, pistachio ice cream, and apple juice.

Last Meal Makes Fuller Fuller


Barney Ronald Fuller Jr. was executed by the state of Texas tonight for a double murder he committed in 2003. After feuding with his neighbors for years, Fuller shot and killed the married couple and wounded one of their children after firing 60 rounds into their house with an assault rifle. Fuller first shot the husband, then announced “Party’s over, bitch,” before he killed the wife. 

“It’s just a heinous crime,” said Randy Hargrove, a former deputy who worked the crime scene. “It’s really sad…but you reap what you sow. If you plant corn, you don’t harvest peas.”

Fuller had neither corn nor peas with his last meal, but he did have a boatload of beans. His entire last meal menu consisted of Salisbury steak, mashed potatoes, green beans, pinto beans, sliced bread, pear crisp, and a choice of water, tea, or punch to drink. Because Texas no longer allows special last meal requests, Fuller was served the same food as others in his unit.

John Wayne Conner Rides Off Into the Sunset

John Wayne Conner—no relation to the cowboy actor with the similar name—was executed by the state of Georgia tonight after spending 33 years on death row. Conner earned his death sentence for killing a friend after an evening of drunken merrymaking. Conner became angry when the victim, James White, remarked that he would like to sleep with Conner’s girlfriend. Conner then bludgeoned White with a whisky bottle and a tree branch, and also beat the man with his hands and feet. A shoe print was found in the middle of White’s forehead.

For his last meal, John Wayne Conner had 10 pieces of fried catfish, 10 hushpuppies, two triple deluxe hamburgers with bacon, two pints of vanilla ice cream, and one sliced raw onion.
