What Would Your Last Words Be If You Knew When You Were Going To Die?

Its a known fact that Texas Death Row is one of the most well-known and heavily scrutinized death penalty systems in the United States. Texas has the highest execution rate in the country, with a history of capital punishment that dates back to the early 19th century.

The conditions on Texas Death Row are notoriously harsh, with inmates often kept in solitary confinement for up to 23 hours a day. The legal process in Texas also faces criticism for its speed and the quality of defense provided to death row inmates. Critics argue that this can lead to wrongful convictions and executions.

Despite these controversies, Texas maintains a strong pro-death penalty stance, reflecting broader public opinion in the state.

But if you've ever been curious as to what is going through the minds of men and women who are going to be put to death and what their last words may be, the Texas Department of Public Safety, keeps a historical record of what these people had to say before their deaths.
