Last Statement

                  Yes I do. Um Abel, Love ya’ll, Evelyn love ya’ll, Armando and Delia I love ya’ll. Do what I told you and you will see me one day. Do that and promise me. First, Veronica’s sister. I know what you’ve been told and that’s all a lie. John Gomez killed your kids and sister. I know ya’ll love John Gomez but he was a violent man. I wish I would have shot him in the leg, then he would be here. Those investigators were just trying to convict somebody. My gun had a hair trigger. Veronica told me to come and get my herb book and she went to the back of the closet. Her kids had asthma and I lent her the book. She said she would give it to me next time. She didn’t want to break up, we still talked. She told me to come over. John Gomez said Veronica does not have the money for your book so don’t come over. Me being a hot shot I went over there and I had my gun. I had children and nephews where I lived so I had to keep my gun in my truck for self defense. Veronica invited me in her house, the kids were still awake fixing to go to bed. I put the gun under my shirt and said Hi to Josh and Cassandra. John Gomez was there he told Veronica that “he doesn’t love you” I didn’t care.

Johnny Johnson 999197 Executed 12th February 2009

Last Statement:

     The Polunsky dungeon should be compared with the Death Row Community as existing not living. Why do I say this, the Death Row is full of isolated hearts and suppressed minds. We are filled with love looking for affection and a way to understand. I am a Death Row resident of the Polunsky dungeon. Why does my heart ache. We want pleasure love and satisfaction. It. The walls of darkness crushed in on me. Life without meaning is life without purpose. But the solace within the Polunsky dungeon, the unforgivesness within society, the church Pastors and Christians. It is terrifying. Does anyone care or who I am. Can you feel me people. The Polunsky dungeon is what I call the pit of hopelessness. The terrfying thing is the US is the only place, country that is the only civilized country that is free that says it will stop murder and enable justice. I ask each of you to lift up your voices to demand an end to the Death Penalty. If we live, we live to the Lord. If we die we die to the Lord. Christ rose again, in Jesus name. Bye Aunt Helen, Luise, Joanna and to all the rest of yall. You may proceed Warden. (began singing)

Well, first I want to say. They may execute me but they can’t punish me because they can’t execute an innocent man. I am not mad. Jack Herrington, I am not mad. You were given a job to do but that’s neither here nor there. I am not mad. I am disappointed by the courts. I feel like I was upset and let down by them. But that’s O.K. I just played the hand that life dealt me. Look at my life and learn from it. I am very remorseful about what I did. I apologize. To my kids, Daddy loves you. Irene Wilcox, Thank you. It’s been a long journey. Thank you for being there. Tell Jack hello. I know I am wrong but I am asking ya’ll to forgive me.
