Game Over for James Freeman

James Freeman was executed by the state of Texas tonight for murdering a game warden on the victim’s birthday. On the night of the killing, Freeman drank “about nine beers” while watching football, then decided to drive around shooting at snakes and birds. After shooting a possum, Freeman panicked and drove away when approached by a game warden. This led to a high-speed chase that ended when Freeman opened fire on law enforcement with first a pistol, then an AK-47. The game warden was shot and killed in the exchange of gunfire.

Because Texas no longer allows special last meal requests, Freeman was served the same food as others in his unit. For his last meal, James Freeman had pepper steak with brown gravy, steamed rice, mixed greens, a vegetable blend, black eyed peas, sliced bread, chocolate cake with peanut butter icing, and a choice of water, tea, or punch to drink.
