#1. James Allen Red Dog—”I’m going home, babe.”

James Allen Red Dog was born in 1954 in Poplar, Montana. Red Dog was a mixed Sioux and Assiniboine who was raised on a Native American reservation. Blaming his poverty-stricken reservation for his lot in life, Red Dog turned to a life of crime so he could make a living for himself. In 1973 he staged an armed robbery with a partner that resulted in a prison sentence for Red Dog. In 1991, years after he was released from prison, Red Dog raped and sodomized a 52-year-old woman and slit the throat of her male roommate. While on trial for his crimes, Red Dog asked to be executed, despite his legal team who wanted to plead that he was mentally incompetent. Before his execution by lethal injection, he received his last rites from a tribal medicinal man from his reservation, then told his wife, “I’m going home, babe.”
