2. Death row inmates make one last request before execution

Two sentenced to death made the same strange last request just before execution. You wouldn’t have guessed what they asked for, even if you tried …

Two inmates, Donald Grant and Gilbert Postell, have demanded that their executions be postponed until a decision is made on their bizarre statement.

Scroll to see what their request was …

Now, although the death penalty has been abolished in many countries, it still persists in some parts of the world.

These countries include China, India, Indonesia, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Saudi Arabia, Iran and, of course, the United States of America.

The death penalty has been part of the US justice system for centuries …

And the punishment, which is often called the death penalty, has been in effect since about 1608 … that Old.

And over the years, this topic has become more and more controversial and taboo.

Many states in the United States have now abolished the death penalty for a variety of reasons …

Including risk factors for the execution of an innocent person, the fact that it does not prevent future crimes and the fact that it is both discriminatory and could be used for political purposes, according to Amnesty

Organizations such as Amnesty have fought for the complete abolition of the death penalty for decades. They have tried to expose and prosecute governments that continue to punish.

The death penalty is considered by many to be absolutely barbaric.

When asked questions, it is difficult to justify the killing of its citizens by the state.

Activists argued that many of those executed over the past few years have been killed despite severe mental and physical illness …

Which was supposed to make the death penalty an unconstitutional punishment.

And some states have made tremendous progress in this area.

History was made by Virginia being First ever The southern state of the United States to abolish the death penalty. Other states that have abolished the death penalty include Alaska, Maine, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Delaware, New York and Washington.

People were, to put it mildly, delighted with this news …

And many are even calling for the cancellation to be nationwide.

Virginia became the twenty-third state to abolish the death penalty.

And many hope that other southern states will follow suit.

1 state that seems to stick to its execution decision is Oklahoma.

Oklahoma passed the death penalty law in 1977, forty-five years ago.
State executions are carried out by lethal injection, with 194 executed since 1915.

There are 2 death row prisoners in Oklahoma. One is to be executed on January 27 this year, and the other on February 17, who asked not to die from lethal injection.

And people have something to say …

Donald Grant, a forty-five-year-old man, is to be executed on January 28, and Gilbert Postell on February 17.

Grant confessed to killing two women at a Del City hotel in 2001, and prosecutors learned that Grant’s earliest arrest was when he was fourteen, after he stole a car.

In accordance with Public radio, he has been described as: “A very anxious, restless young man.”

Gilbert Postell, a 35-year-old man, was on methamphetamine when he killed four people in 2005.

The attack was carried out by Postel, his brother and father, who praised their boys after being shot. reportedly saying, “These are my boys.”

Although their legal team has repeatedly argued that Grant was “brain-damaged” and suffered from poor mental health. And the fact that Postel was under the influence of “drugs and his father” … Nothing has changed in how they are going to live the rest of their lives.

So after being sentenced to death by lethal injection, two inmates recently demanded something that … Well, a little weird.

And it comes like Insider received the documents from the court case on Monday.

Keep scrolling to see what their request is.

The two inmates thought that death by lethal injection was too gruesome and therefore wanted to be executed in a different way.

Especially because lethal injections in Oklahoma have been known to fail. Clayton Lockett, who was convicted in 2000 of rape, kidnapping and murder, suffered a heart attack during lethal injection after being injected with an unverified drug that caused him to convulse and vomit, and died forty-three minutes later.

John Marion Grant, who killed a canteen worker in 1998, was also executed by injection, vomiting, and convulsions before dying.

And in 2015, Oklahoma actually used the wrong drug during an execution, stopping the heart of convicted rapist and murderer of eleven-month-old Charles Warner, according to Shale news, who reported that he had shouted: “My body is on fire.”

Execution by firing squad.

This is because they think it is a faster and more painless way to die.
