“God, forgive my brothers and my sisters for the sins I have committed. God, forgive me. God, I give my life for my brothers and sisters.”

— Jesse De La Rosa, convicted of murder, lethal injection, Texas.
Executed May 15, 1985

De La Rosa was convicted of slaying a man during a convenience store robbery. Because the store’s cash register wouldn’t open, the take from the robbery was only a six-pack of beer.
