While waiting in his cell, on efforts for clemency:
“I won’t get a break.”

— Ross King, convicted of murder, electric chair, Illinois.
Executed October 16, 1933

In a jailhouse interview, convicted cop killer King said, “Swift death in the ‘hot seat’ is better than life in prison. I know: I’ve been to prison. To go there for life would be a lifetime in hell.”
