John David Duty

Offender: John David Duty of robbed a store, and kidnapped a woman. He and an accomplice took her to a barn and shot her. Surprisingly, she was able to walk a mile to get help. Not content with a life sentence, Duty tried to cause trouble to force his execution. The first time, he held eight people at medical unit hostage. One of them, a psychologist, took him to his office and talked him down. The second time, Duty convinced his cellmate, to act as a hostage, and killed him. To this day, his execution is seen an example of using the state as a suicicde method.

Meal: John David Duty choose a double cheeseburger, a footlong hotdog with onions, a cherry limade, and a bannana shake. I had all the items at Sonic, with the shake replaced with Bannana Cream Pie.

Cost: $5.19(double cheeseburger) + 4.39(shake) + $3.99(footlong dog) + $2.59(limeade) = $16.16
