"If there was anything, short of selling my soul to the devil, I could do to bring them back to their families or stop the suffering or pay back what I did, I would be willing to do it. But I know there ain't no way I can do that. I'm always thinking about these people I killed, every day, every day. That's why it just don't bother me if these people take my life."

- David Leroy Washington
