Chops for Chester

Sometimes "good" and "bad" are subjective terms. For proof, just look at the last words of Elroy Chester, executed tonight by the state of Texas.

Chester confessed to five killings but was executed for the murder of a fireman which took place during a six-month crime spree that involved rapes, robberies, and multiple homicides. In his last statement, however, Chester announced "Elroy Chester wasn't a bad man. I don't care what anybody says." he then told the execution witnesses, "I'll see you later."

Since Texas did away with special last meal requests in 2011, Chester was served the same food as everyone else in his prison unit. His last meal included baked pork chops, mashed potatoes with gravy, and green beans.
