  1. #1 Death Row Inmate Eyes..........Well, No, He Doesn't. 
    Texas death row inmate in psychiatric facility after pulling out eye, eating it

    HOUSTON ó A Texas death row inmate with a history of mental problems pulled out his only good eye, authorities said Friday.

    Andre Thomas told officers he ate it.

    Thomas, 25, was arrested for the fatal stabbings of his estranged wife, their young son and her 13-month-old daughter in March 2004. Their hearts also had been ripped out. He was convicted and condemned for the infant's death.

    While in the Grayson County Jail in Sherman, Thomas similarly had plucked out his right eye before his trial later in 2004. A judge subsequently ruled he was competent to stand trial.

    A death-row officer at the Polunsky Unit of the Texas Department of Criminal Justice found Thomas in his cell with blood on his face and had him taken to the unit infirmary.

    ""Thomas said he pulled out his eye and subsequently ingested it," agency spokesman Jason Clark said Friday.

    Thomas was treated at East Texas Medical Center in Tyler after the Dec. 9 incident. Then he was transferred and remains at the Jester Unit, a prison psychiatric facility near Richmond southwest of Houston.
    I'm guessing they need to hurry up and kill this guy or there won't be enough left over for the execution. :eek:

    Does anyone else find it funny that the prison psych unit is called the Jester Unit?

    I would like for it to be named "The Mad Hatter's Tea Room and Lounge"

    Because outrageously tragic topics naturally lend themselves to humor. Thankfully. If they didn't, we'd all be morose feminist vegans who "choose" to be celibate and childless for the sake of the Planet. :D

    The human condition - good, bad, or indifferent - is inherently amusing.
