Obama's Latest Endorsement From Mississippi
Bishop's final words were:
"God bless America. It has been great living here. That's all."
Before he died Wednesday evening, death row inmate Dale Leo Bishop apologized to his victim's family, thanked America and urged people to vote for Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama. "For those who oppose the death penalty and want to see it end, our best bet is to vote for Barack Obama because his supporters have been working behind the scenes to end this practice," Bishop said.
Bishop, 34, was pronounced dead by lethal injection at 6:14 p.m. - the second inmate put to death in Mississippi in two months. Earl Wesley Berry, 49, was executed May 21...
Though Bishop eight years ago had asked a judge for the death penalty, officials said he had changed his mind.
