Famous Last Meals examines as you figured the last meals of the condemned. You might think you are what you eat, but some of the request are out of character. Here is a sampling of what Timothy McVeigh asked before he lethally injected.
Though convicted for only 8 counts of murder, McVeigh took the lives of 168 men, women, and children in the April 19, 1995 Oklahoma City bombing. A Gulf War veteran and militia sympathizer, McVeigh had carried out the terrorist attack in response to the 1993 siege at Waco, Texas. On death row, McVeigh remained unapologetic for his actions, dropped his appeals, and even requested that his execution be televised (a request that was denied). In 2001, he became the first criminal to be executed by the federal government since the 1963 execution of Victor Feguer. His last request of 2 pints of Ben & Jerry's mint chocolate ice cream is an interesting one, but can't match the irony of Feguer's olive. It's rumored that PETA had contacted McVeigh and urged him to select a meatless final meal; several years later, PETA would also urge Ben & Jerry's to switch from using cow's milk to human breast milk (another request that was denied).
