A PERSON in Georgia set to be executed Tuesday asked some seriously top-calorie food for his final meal.
Keith Tharpe — who used to be sentenced to loss of life in 1991 for the homicide of Jacquelin Freeman — asked three highly spiced hen breasts, roast red meat sandwich with sauce, fish sandwich, tater logs, onion jewelry, apple pie and a vanilla milkshake, consistent with the Georgia Department of Corrections.
Now Not each state honors inmates’ final meal requests. Some restrict the fee — Florida’s ceiling is $FORTY, in step with the dept of Corrections website, with meals to be bought in the community. Others, like Texas, which never had a delegated buck restrict, mandate meals be prison-made. Some states don’t acknowledge final foods, and others will reveal the guidelines only if the inmate is of the same opinion, said K. William Hayes, a Florida-based totally demise penalty historian.
there may be something prisoners won’t ever be allowed as part of their last meal: alcohol, which was requested by way of inmate Marcus Ray Johnson in 2015, who wanted a six-pack of beer, Atlanta Magazine Constitution studies.
In Georgia, if an inmate makes no special request for his last meal, they’re given the usual menu of rooster and rice, rutabagas, seasoned turnip greens, dry white beans, cornbread, bread pudding and fruit punch, in line with the Georgia Department of Corrections.
Final meal requests from neatly-known prisoners became fairly famous. In 1994, John Wayne Gacy requested 12 fried shrimp, bucket of authentic recipe KFC, french fries and a pound of strawberries. In 1963, Victor Feguer asked a unmarried olive with the pit in it, in keeping with Industry Insider.
