Man’s Unexpected Last Words Before Execution

A man’s surprising last words before execution.

Texas death row inmate Richard Cobb was recently executed. When asked for his last words, the man said, “Life is death, death is life. I hope that someday this absurdity that humanity has come to will come to an end. Life is too short. I hope anyone that has negative energy towards me will resolve that.”

As the lethal injection took effect, Cobb completed his final words to the world with, “Wow! That is great. That is awesome! Thank you, warden!”

Cobb earned his capital charge by killing one of the three people he and a partner abducted during a convenience store robbery. All three were shot and left for dead, and one woman was raped.

One of his victims attended the execution, but said she did not see the remorse she was hoping for.

The father of the man slain by Cobb said, “I think justice was served but it doesn’t change anything to speak of. All he did was go to sleep. That’s it.”

The violent crimes occurred on September 2nd of 2002. At his trial, Cobb said he robbed the store to support his drug habit.
