Only the worst people in the world receive the death penalty. But just before these criminals kick the bucket, they are allowed to enjoy one last meal. For cannibal pedophile Doug Stephener, reports say that he has asked for… an 8-year-old kid. News of the story has many people asking: ‘This can’t be real!? Can it!?’
Various online media outlets have reported saying that his last meal application request asked for a child that was 8 years old or less. It is also reported that he did not want the child to be of Asian descent.
Can you believe this?! It’s hard to believe that a prison would accommodate a request like this. In many countries, the last meal request is a courtesy but not mandatory. In the United States, no states mandates that all requests must be fulfilled. In fact, Texas actually got rid of the last meal requests in 2011.
However, according to various media outlet reports, the Department of Corrections is actually trying to fulfill the man’s wishes. It’s been suggested that they were planning to buy a LIVE toddler from a third world country for up to $25,000. How is this even legal?!
A traditional last meal consists of a steak, eggs, hash browns, toast, milk, coffee, juice, butter and jelly. Never once have we heard someone ask for a child, so we decided to do a bit of digging.
According to the Texas Department of Criminal Justice, no one named Doug Stephener has been, or is about to be, executed in the state.
The story on Stephener was first reported on the French website, Nord Presse, which just so happen to be a satirical news site. Meaning, the story was completely made up.
