This is such a travesty of justice I have no words for it. Please watch the videos and circulate this. One of the main reasons I oppose the barbarism of capitol punishment. Despite the many clearcut cases we all emotionally want to see punished, there are many cases like Troy's. Please have a look and see what your heart, and mind, tell you.

The death penalty is used in many places, and it's clear that it can be wrongly applied. In the case of Troy Davis, there seem to be several anomalies. This case should be reopened and thoroughly investigated. Justly applied, I have no problem with the death penalty. I have a lot of problems with an unjustly applied sentence.

This case, sadly, like so many, has a lot of unanswered questions.

One thing you can be sure of from the justice system. It is not systematic and it is not just!

I don't want to see an innocent man jailed forever, nor do I want to see a guilty man go free. Some sort of just determination needs to be arrived at. It's time for the state to put up or shut up and do the job right.
