As we write this post, convicted murderer Donald Dillbeck has been dead for exactly one hour, having been executed in Florida Thursday evening. As the headline says, Dillbeck used his last breaths to criticize Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis — guess he was salty about not getting that pardon.

That eloquent statement reads, “I know I hurt people when I was young. I really messed up. But I know Ron DeSantis has done a lot worse. He’s taken a lot from a lot of people. I speak for all men, women and children. He’s put his foot on our necks. Ron DeSantis and other people like him can suck our d**ks.”
He did indeed “hurt people” when he was young:
Convicted murderer Donald Dillbeck is scheduled to be executed at 6 p.m. ET tonight at Florida State Prison after the U.S. Supreme Court rejected a last-minute petition by Dillbeck’s attorneys on Wednesday. Dillbeck, now 59, was sent to death row after he was convicted of the 1990 murder of Faye Lamb Vann in a Tallahassee mall parking lot.
At the time of the murder, Dillbeck had escaped from a work-release catering job in Gadsden County, where he was serving a life sentence for killing Lee County Deputy Dwight Lynn Hall, 31, in 1979, when he was 15.
Dillbeck went to Tallahassee and tried to carjack a vehicle, according to court documents. Vann, who was sitting in the car, resisted and was fatally stabbed. He was convicted in 1991 of first-degree murder, armed robbery and armed burglary, Department of Corrections records show.
The system kept him alive on death row for a very long time … long enough to die with DeSantis as his governor. Shame.
Florida Democrats just lost their most articulate candidate for statewide office. https://t.co/75i8OXxGxQ
