Following last-minute court challenges, Alabama Thursday evening executed Torrey Twane McNabb, convicted of killing Montgomery police officer Anderson Gordon in 1997.

McNabb's attorneys filed appeals in the case throughout Thursday to halt the execution that was set for 6 p.m. at the Holman Correctional Facility in Atmore. the last stay was lifted between 8 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. McNabb's official time of death was 9:38 p.m.

Gordon's family issued a statement after the execution.

"Over 20 years ago we lost a companion, a father a brother and a friend who only wanted to make a difference in his community. Brother, who we affectionately called him, worked to make a difference in his community until his life was taken from him," the statement read in part. "Though this has been a difficult day for the Gordon family, we also continue to pray for the family of Torrey McNabb."

McNabb's final words were as follows:

"Mom, sis, look at my eyes. I'm unafraid ... To the state of Alabama, I hate you motherf***ers. I hate you. I hate you."

A brief portion of his final words was unintelligible.

McNabb raised both of his middle fingers twice during the lead-up to his death.

He raised his right arm and grimaced about 20 minutes before he was declared dead, just after a corrections officer performed the second round of consciousness checks. McNabb's family members and attorneys audibly expressed concern that he was not yet unconscious at that point.



Comments:
It took 20 years for him to finally get his medicine. So unfair to Officer Anderson's family.
