Just Beans, No Sprouts, for Sprouse

Kent Sprouse obviously wasn’t in his right mind when he shot and killed two men, including a police officer, outside a Dallas convenience store in 2002. His lawyers have argued that Sprouse was mentally ill at the time, but have recently offered a more logical explanation: “He started hitting the meth and just went crazy,” Sprouse’s lead trial lawyer now says. “Even his family was afraid of him.”

Sprouse was executed by the state of Texas tonight by lethal injection. Since death row inmates there are no longer allowed to order special last meals, Sprouse was given the same food as others in his unit. For his last meal, Sprouse had beef noodle casserole, peas & carrots, black beans, and cornbread, with a choice of punch, tea, or water to drink.
