    Sorry to hear that. At least you are here. This is a good forum. You will like it. Trolls are effectively dealt with here. And, once you reach 250 posts, a hidden subforum will open up for you. Can't tell you what it is. Just say that it is a world like no other. LOL.

    Of course. When guilt is obvious, it's not as controversial. Some people are always going to be against the death penalty and protest every execution, but this wasn't one of those executions. The law shouldn't support a government that kills innocent people... The law isn't working properly, and this could have likely cost an innocent man his life. And if an innocent man died, every single person serving the state of Georgia ****ed up big time. Executing somebody should NEVER prompt this type of public response. There should be no doubt. I am afraid that executions are more about politics than about justice. The people working for the government seem to be more afraid to look soft of executing somebody than they are afraid of killing an innocent person.

    it's not appropriate for the President of the United States to intervene in the Davis case who happens to be one of his own citizens but it apparently is appropriate to be selectively spreading freedom and democracy in the Middle East when it suits.

    awesome.


    Meanwhile, a spokesman for US President Barack Obama said he will not intervene in the Davis case, because it was "not appropriate" to become involved in specific state cases.

    "Dating back to his time in the Illinois State Senate, President Obama has worked to ensure accuracy and fairness in the criminal justice system, especially in capital punishment cases," Press Secretary Jay Carney said ahead of the planned execution.

    "However, it is not appropriate for the president of the United States to weigh in on specific cases like this one, which is a state prosecution."

    Yeah, I noticed none of the death penalty opponents in this thread (except PoweRob) had anything to say in that thread. Why is that?

    I'll posted what I posted on facebook:

    Closing statements for the night before I go to bed...I'm am genuinely bothered and angry that my country - one that claims to stand for civil rights, for freedom, and for justice and equality - has on this night perpetrated a gross and senseless injustice.

    This is seriously going to keep me awake tonight, because I am that pissed off and disappointed at our justice system.

    Well, I'm not really a "death penalty opponent" (although I may be on my way to becoming because my views have changed somewhat recently), but the problem most people have with the death penalty isn't that it kills guilty people, it's that it kills innocent people as well...
