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.
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."

Why do we fall?
So we can learn to pick ourselves up.
Justice has failed.
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.
