Troy Davis, Oct. 9, 1968 – Sept. 21, 2011

This makes me sick to my stomach. The absolute lack of evidence against Mr. Davis, and the extreme likelihood that this was a bogus case from the get-go, makes this yet another obscene travesty of justice. The judicial system in this country is a cruel farce - incompetently administered by a parade of corrupt toadies and ignorant nincompoops, apparently incapable of either rational thought or fairness.

If we actually had a justice system, if this was actually a functioning democracy, this sort of mindless rush to execute people could not happen. But clearly we don't. (Other huge indicators are that none of the psychopaths of BushCo are on trial, or even being investigated for treason and international war crimes. And no Wall Street bankster is in prison, either).

Last week in WNC, the woman who CONFESSED to the murder of a disabled ten year-old girl, and who, after killing this child, then dismembered her and scattered her remains, was sentenced to 15-18 years in prison. Huh? Second-degree murder? 15 to 18 years?? People are routinely imprisoned longer than that for drugs! But since step-mommy dearest is a white lady, you know there was no chance of the death penalty there.

If there is any doubt of someone's guilt - let alone the many indications of innocence demonstrated in the Troy Davis case - then who wouldn't want to find that out? What reasonable, fair-minded person would want to proceed with an execution? But the state of Georgia was totally hell-bent on executing that man no matter what. They just didn't give a shit.

Probably another bunch of white, conservatard, fundamentalist hypocrites who fancy themselves "good Christians", and are so self-delusional that they can look in the mirror each day and not run screaming down the street at what looks back at them. Yeah, that's a bigoted comment. Sue me.

Well, if someone decided to sue me, they wouldn't get much. At this point in history, however, I would feel honored to at least be arrested for my convictions and my activism for democracy.
