David Martin Long “They Create Monsters In There.”
David Martin Long had committed 5 murders during an 8-year period. However, he was arrested in 1986 after killing three women in their home in Lancaster, Texas.
He was hitchhiking and he claimed he had no place to go so the women offered him a place to stay. He killed all three of them in return.
He blamed the system for what he had become and it is clear from his last words before his execution where he said, “I was raised by the California Youth Authority, I can’t really pin point where it started, what happened, but really believe that’s just the bottom line, what happened to me was in California.
I was in their reformatory schools and penitentiary, but ah, they create monsters in there. That’s it, I have nothing else to say.”
