"1 death row inmate down and many to go!"

"Troy Davis was a MURDERING THUG and he got what he deserved!!"

These are comments the resident right wing Troll FED UP had the audacity to post in response to the execution of Troy Davis.

Real classy huh?

But it got me thinking...this is the mindset the Georgia Board of Clemency, The Georgia Supreme Court and eventually the United States Supreme Court heard instead of the activist around the world who cried in vain to stop the state sanctioned murder of an innocent man.

This is why elections matter. It's not about abortion, gay marriage, affirmative action, or illegal immigration or some other wedge issue.

It's about electing people with the power to exercise racism.

It's about electing Governors who make appointments to the Parole Boards.

It's about electing Presidents who make life time appointments to the Supreme Court. Can you a Rick Perry/Sarah Palin/Michelle Bachman/Rick Santorum/Ron Paul/Newt Gingrich/Herman Cain/Mitt Romney/Jon Huntsman Supreme Court? Shudder

If we are going to engage in collective murder, we need to be sure beyond any doubt. What gets me is gopers, and the people who pander to them, don't see the hypocrisy of their beliefs and subsequent actions.

How can they be compassionate, Christian conservatives and pro death penalty?

The last words of Troy Anthony Davis were "May God bless your souls” . Are those the words of a MURDERING THUG? I think NOT.

Georgia Rep. John Lewis perhaps put it best. “Do not weep for Troy Anthony Davis, he will be with God, weep for Georgia and for our Nation. Capital punishment is barbaric.”

When did we we become a nation of Barbarians?

THERE WAS NO RACISM! The jury had blacks and so did the parole board!
STOP playing the race card!!

Black silence in the face of black racism has to be one of the biggest betrayals of the civil rights struggle that included black and white Americans.

Anyone on death row should not be there 22 years that cost tax payers.If there sentence is death carry it out quickly!!

> Thus sayeth the Lord. Amen.

You think not but you are not sure!
A jury was sure so was the parole board other judges and even Obama himself did not intervene!!Could it be due to his guilt?!! yes!

What were the officers last words?

FED UP said...

Lawrence Russell Brewer was killed by the state of Texas and not one word from you or any liberals wanting to save him!!! Was it because he was white and killed a black man?


I've said those two words over and over since I have been posting on your site!!!!

Liar, liar pant on fire. I did mention Lawrence Brewer. You should click on the hyperlinks before you react. From The Night the Lights Went Out in Georgia.

Ask yourself the following, "What kind of society do I want to live in?". What kind of society do I want future generations to live in? What if Troy Davis were my son/brother/father/uncle/cousin/friend?
Do you want to live in a society where people, prideful, imperfect, deceivable people reserve unto themselves the right to kill other people?

Because I guarantee you that so long as we think that people en masse under the guise of The State have the right to kill they are going to find ways to exercise that power.

It's to bad the powers that be listen to reactionaries like you and ignore thoughtful, caring, compassionate people like us liberals.

FED UP said...

If it were my brother I'd be sad but he should think about his actions before he does bad things!

I want to live in a liberal free society that is willing to punish the ones who choose to not follow or live by the rules!

If you do not contribute to society or you are a career criminal we should kick you out. Georgia was the place criminals were sent before the colonies. We should have a place like that now.

There would be no need for the death penalty if people acted right and did not murder other innocent people! It would be even more of a deterrent if it were used with in 3 years of the sentence!

The change needs to come in people not in stopping the death penalty. When we have law lawlessness in our nation there needs to be a penalty.

We have too many bleeding hearts who want to try to rehabilitate an offender when time and time again the recidivism rate keeps rising! We need harsher laws to keep the bad people locked away or put to death so they are not allowed into society to hurt others!!!!!!!!

It's funny how prison inmates find god and say they have changed or say they are innocent when MOST are career criminals. As I said before it's like the old saying "you never see an atheist in a fox hole"!

F U... Jesus Christ was executed by the state.

F U Murder begets Murder.

F U, did you know it cost the state more to impose the death penalty than it does to imprison convicted criminals?

It's funny how Christian Compassionate Conservatives believe they are the only ones who believe in God.
