    I was reading about this case tonight. Amazing what lies people will tell in order to further their political/ideological agenda. Responsibility? Accountability? Nah. Why let those things bug you? His supporters are disgusting pieces of human debris.

    Court after court have reviewed this case and come to the same conclusion -the evidence is overwhelming against him.


    BTW, I don't mean to get off on a tangent, but IMO I have always believed the death penalty is not only for the benefit of the victim's family (so they can have some closure), and society (so justice and accountability are preserved), but it also for the benefit of the condemned. Yes, that's right, the condemned prisoner actually benefits from his impending date with death. How? If not for the finality attached to the punishment of execution, many of those guilty of heinous crimes would never come to terms with what they did. I know probably most do not anyway, but for a small few who do, there is the opportunity for peace with God. Afterall, there can be no peace without forgiveness, there can be no forgiveness without repentence, there can be no repentence without remorse, and there can be no remorse without an acknowledgement of guilt. I remember the scene in Dead Man Walking when Sean Penn's character finally admits to the nun his guilt for rape/murder. It is very likely had he sat in prison his entire life, he would never have had to confront his culpability under these very stark circumstances. I know that that is a fictionalized account of a real story, but the point is the same.

    Anyway, I hope for Mr. Davis' sake that he ignores the pleas of his supporters and does the right thing for once in his life, and for the sake of his soul.

    Duh...
    I'll bet those marchers are like those that support Wesley Cook aka Mumia Abu Jamal.

    In the movie The Barrel of a Gun by Tigre Hill, he explores the murder of Philadelphia Police Officer Danny Faulkner in December of 1981 from a different perspective than those of the previous films about the case like Justice On Trial: The Case of Mumia Abu-Jamal.

    In The Barrel of a Gun, they have interviews with Ed Asner and Mike Farrell (BJ Hunnicutt from M*A*S*H*) in support of Mumia Abu Jamal.

    My point is, I'll bet that the marchers haven't read the whole transcript of the trial and educated themselves on the facts.

    I saw the movie The Barrel of a Gun which was shown at the National Fraternal Order of Police Convention in Salt Lake City, Utah in August.

    It is supposed to be released today 09/21/2011. See it if you get the chance.

    Yep, the prison in Jackson will be a hopping place throughout the day. I am sure it is on lockdown now.

    This has been put off for too long, it is time to put this POS where he belongs.

    I can't wait to 19:00 today. Good riddance Troy Davis.:steamed:

    Definitely from the perspective of a Christian, or Jewish person for that matter, there are valid points there in your statement concerning finality of things for a person meeting his date with death. I have even heard that there are those who are relieved when the day comes so that they can go on with being accountable fully and receiving just punishment for the actions that led to their execution. Personally I am not always for the death penalty in every case that involves murder, unless the evidence is overwhelming, (and from my understanding of things concerning this case it is). It is like it says in Romans chapter thirteen, concerning receiving reward for doing good, or quite possibly the sword for doing bad.

    I also believe that the method of death is too humane for some. As shocking as that may be for some to hear, I believe the guillotine, or hanging should be considered as sufficiently humane considering that there are those who have committed heinous crimes causing much pain. The guillotine was developed by a medical physician in order to help with rendering a very quick and relatively painless death, in that it quickly severs the head from the spinal cord. Hanging if done correctly is also relatively quick. Also, it should be available for public viewing in order for people to see, (with the exceptions of small children), the consequences for heinous crimes against other persons.

    Weird, I went to IamTroy.com expecting to see some evidence of this guy's innocence, and it just rerouted me to the NAACP's website...

    God be with the MacPhail family.

  8. I wish more people would understand this. While I DO think the death penalty should be an option - it no longer is in IL - it should be used is extreme cases. We just had a guy convicted and sentenced to 45 years (required to serve the full sentence) for shooting a man dead in a fast-food parking lot. A lot of people here were hollering about why didn't he get life, and they wish the death penalty was back, etc. Well, statistically, for a 30-year-old black man in prison, 45 years is pretty much a life sentence, so that argument is moot.

    As for the death penalty....I believe the death penalty has typically been reserved for 'special circumstances', like especially brutal murders, multiple victims (this was what they used on Scott Peterson in CA), and the murder of law enforcement, as this is considered a direct attack on society (whether it was intentionally targeting LEO or not may make a difference, too).

    Yes, the death penalty should be available, but, as wishy-washy as it may sound, it should be used in extreme cases because we should NOT be an "eye for an eye, life for a life" system. That's how the gangs and thugs function, and we HAVE to be better than that.
     
  9. ...and have a nice trip.....:wavey:
     
  10. Damn straight. He shot Officer MacPhail in 1989. We should've been listening to this BS in 1991, not letting him suck up oxygen for the last 20 yrs.

    I'm going to the store to grab more beer and chips. At least one low life has been executed tonight. Lawrence Russell Brewer dragged that poor man to death. He deserved to be executed.

    Well, the Supreme Court has denied the appeal, so let the "juice" flow.
