    The death penalty is a tricky one, in this case, did this guy get what was coming to him? Yes absolutely, he deserved to die for what he did...

    But that doesn't automatically remove the fact that innocent people do get executed, two wrongs do not make a right. And I find it awfully funny how so many people on the right side of the aisle have such a problem with government, that they shouldn't be involved at all in education, shouldn't look out for the welfare of the elderly, shouldn't be involved in Health care, regulation because government can't do anything right... but hey, we're perfectly ok with the government being able to put people to death, knowing they sometimes screw it up.
    Actually, the victim's family have begged to make this a, "hate crime", as if that would make any difference.

    And I Suppose you're going to claim it's because Troy was black, and this guy was white.

    Rather then the real reason it won't get as much attention, because of human nature, knowing he was positively guilty of this heinous crime, and wanting to see him put to death because of it. Which proves the death penalty has little to do with Justice and more to do with feeding the animalistic human yearning of vengeance, which is why it's probably a good idea that the victims relatives don't have legal rights in these situations, especially if, or should I say when they do catch the wrong guy.

    That has everything to do with it; plus this asshole killed a black dude. If he had killed a white dude, we would see more action.

    That's your opinion.

    The arguments have nothing to do with that, it's that one conviction seemed incredibly hazy and the other did not. But while even I would like to see this guy put to death, overall the chance that innocent people could be executed is enough to put a stay on it all.

    Hey man if the system were perfect, and we could know 100% that the people we were executing were guilty, screw lethal injection, hang the mother****ers.

    But since we can't, I'd say it's just not right.

    Having said that I'd rather be put to death myself quickly then have to sit in prison for 60 years or some ****.

    The lack of pissin-n-moanin over this cat getting iced will prove my opinion correct.

    The fact that one was guilty beyond any reasonable doubt and the other had boatloads of doubt is why the "pissin' and moanin'" is where it is. Along with the fact that one made the national news and the other most people didn't even hear about to even know about doing any "pissin' and moanin'" in the first place.

    The freegin' pope chimed in on the one for crying out loud. It got the press.

    Both, are guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.

    No they weren't. Which is why there is so much noise.

    How did Troy Davis get convicted, then?

    By a trial with people who now recanted their testimony saying they were pressured by the prosecution.

    The evidentiary hearing was held in June 2010, during which affidavits from several prosecution witnesses from the trial changing or recanting their previous testimony were presented. Some of the affidavits implicated one of the original prosecution witnesses, Sylvester "Redd" Coles, in the crime, and other affiants asserted they had been coerced by police. The State presented witnesses, including the police investigators and original prosecutors, denying coercion. Evidence that Coles had confessed to the killing was excluded as hearsay because Coles was not subpoenaed by the defense to rebut it.
