“I deserve this. Tell everyone I said good-bye.”

— Charles William Bass, convicted of murder, lethal injection, Texas.
Executed April 12, 1986

After robbing a lounge at gunpoint, Bass was coincidentally stopped by two city marshals on a traffic warrant. When the officers noticed that Bass’s pockets were stuffed with rolls of coins and dollar bills, he pulled a pistol, shot at both men, and killed one.
