    There Is No Travesty of Justice in Georgia. Execute Troy Davis

    If this article is true then it looks like the scumbag sympathizers mislead everyone to push their their anti-death penalty cause.

    In fact, one of the chief nuggets of the case is that there was no physical evidence. Except that is crap. There is the matter of Troy Davis’s bloody clothes that you’ve probably never heard of.
    There was a .38 caliber gun. Both Troy Davis and the man Davis’s team claims in the real murderer, Sylvester Coles, had a .38 caliber gun.


    snip..


    But then there is Officer MacPhail himself and what the defense all too conveniently forgets to bring up. Officer MacPhail “testified” at Troy Davis’s murder trial. See, MacPhail, an Army Ranger and police officer was working a second job that night as a security guard. He chased Davis and Sylvester Coles, who were assaulting a homeless man over a beer.
    MacPhail reported in that he had run passed Sylvester Coles. MacPhail was shot from the front in the chest and face — not from behind where Coles was, but from the front where MacPhail himself located Troy Davis.


    In the laundry they found Troy Davis’s shorts from that night with evidence on the clothing directly tying him to Officer MacPhail’s murder — Officer MacPhail’s blood. (editorial note: it should be noted that Troy Davis’s shorts were not DNA tested. There were multiple people’s blood on his shorts)

    According to Darrell Collins, who is now recanting everything or claiming not to remember anything, Davis admitted to Collins that Davis had shot MacPhail in the chest and then went back to shoot MacPhail in the head at close range because MacPhail had seen his face — hence MacPhail’s blood on Davis’s shorts. Oh, and at the time Collins gave his statement way back in 1989 it was not public knowledge that Officer MacPhail had been shot in the chest and then at close range in the face.


    (remember as well that there were 34 witnesses, not the 9 as claimed. The defense claims seven witnesses changed their testimony. That’s actually not true. Only two materially changed their testimony and 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.

But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Are you aware the Georgia Board of Pardons commutted the death penalty of a prisoner about whose guilt there was no doubt at all?

    This week....but he was white.

    Respectfully, if this link is as accurate about the Georgia case as they are about their brief description of Davis's, well, I think I see a problem. ;-)

    Did you know that every second on this planet someone is taking a ****? Every 10 seconds someone is probably saying the word ****. You are probably wondering how this is relevant.Its relevant just like your but he is white is why he got off and Davis didn't comment.

    The thing from the Davis case that I want looked into is how the witnesses said the police intimidated them into testifying against Davis. Whether or it would have changed his outcome, police intimidation is something that should be looked into.

    I oppose the death penalty, so for me, it matters not whether he was guilty. One reason I oppose it is, the imposition of this ultimate penalty is VERY uneven between the genders, races and classes. But I'd be dishonest if I said that was my main reason.

    I just think it's wrong.

    Re: There Is No Travesty of Justice in Georgia. Execute Troy Davis

    I sat as a member of the jury on a murder trial a few years ago. Though in that particular case, I have no doubt that they got the right guy, it might have been possible that we didn't. Given what I witnessed, it would have been quite easy to railroad someone who was inoccent. I shudder to think that we've probably already executed people for murders they didn't commit, and maybe even for which they didn't have anything to do.

    I'm not remotely against the death penalty. I think it ought to be applied to different crimes and with different evidentiary standards. I think I'd rather sentence someone like Jeff Skilling or Dennis Koslowski t death than Troy Davis, even if he was guilty of murder...

    Excellent information. But we all know most folks will refuse to give a **** about evidence that shows this is in fact, a justifiable execution.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    To me, no execution is justifiable...and I live in Cleveland.
