Troy Was Executed

As I went to sleep last night I heard over the radio that Troy Davis was killed by our government.

I hate that I live in a country that will kill a man who may have been innocent. I hate the death penalty altogether. And I hate those who rubber stamp it.

The death penalty serves no purpose to my mind. Far better to let a murderer rot in prison lamenting his life lost than to put him out of his misery.
I understand that up to the last minute, this poor young man declared his innocence. I hope the truth is found eventually.
I feel so sorry for the family of the victim of his supposed "crime" as I have a feeling that the death of a potentially innocent man is not going to do much to heal their pain.

Our government should not have this power.
We have proved far too willing to jail the innocent - look what Alabama and Karl Rove have done to Don Siegelman (http://donsiegelman.org/). If charges can be trumped up by one political party to jail a former governor of the opposite party, who is safe?
None of us.
