First topic message reminder :

The final hour. I can't believe they couldn't stop this insanity. I don't know what else to say.

I am not saying it is right, I don't believe in the death penalty, it is geared towards the poor who can't afford their own attorneys.

By the way, the state of Georgia just murdered an innocent man at 11:08 p.m. Sad day for this already broken country.
Please explain to me how you can say that the state has "murdered an innocent man"? Were you a witness to this crime ? Have you read the pages and pages of legal briefs that the court reviewed last night ? Preposterous

"Witness" is the key word here. All they had was eyewitness testimony, of which 7 of the 9 recanted. The shooter confessed to someone that he was the one with the gun, and that person came forward. Jurors on the case stated they would have changed their verdict had they known the truth! In my opinion, he was not proven guilty. As far as I know, in this country you are innocent until proven guilty!! This whole thing was a set-up, that is what is preposterous!

It was 34 witnesses, not the 9 as claimed.
"The defense claims seven witnesses changed their testimony. Only two materially changed their testimony Davis’s attorneys refused to present those two in federal court in 2010 to be examined in the evidentiary hearing even though they sat outside the courtroom door. Eyewitnesses? three airmen in the Air Force in a bus who had prime viewing for the murder and all identified Troy Davis as the wearer of the white Batman t-shirt, (which is what the murderer wore) so 9 of his friends out of 34 witnesses."

He was guilty but the Death Penalty is wrong they just tried everything to spare his life.

I have very strong doubts about his guilt, tristen, but I do agree that the death penalty is wrong. It is state sanctioned premeditated murder. I don't believe that we have the right to pick who lives or dies, especially when the majority of death row inmates couldn't even afford their own attorney. O.J. Simpson and Robert Blake walked!

Very well said and I agree completely! God help those of us who say or believe in his guilt if were wrong; life in prison protects us from those mistakes. What is the saying let three guilty men go free least one innocent man be imprisoned?

Some of the Tea Party members are making profiles called the Ghost of Troy. Sick WACKOS.. Ann Coulter says troy is our new baby seal? BIACH has an Adams apple that looks more like a WATERMELON

This is the philosophy that the founding fathers used when building our bill of rights and the constitution. We don't believe this anymore. Now we believe in "kill him just in case". Yet another step toward fascism.
