Troy Davis is going to be killed, yes killed, at midnight UK time tonight by the delivery of a lethal injection.
I'm not a lawyer. Anyone who knows me will be well aware of what I think about our legal system, let alone that of America.
He allegedly killed a cop. One of America's finest. A cop, in the Met Police Force, had pictures of my kids, because he was a paedophile. He got fuck all in the way of sentence and was out in the square root of that. He has a protected identity and a secret address. So you won't find him. His name is David Geering (I am not allowed to say this) and he had a Rover car with a personal plate. Which I know. If I were him, I'd be shitting myself. He was as guilty as sin.
Anyway, nuff said. Cops are not all good, or bad. I was one. They are people. You shouldn't kill them.
I know nothing, NOTHING, about Troy Davis. He's black. He's probably disadvantaged, who fucking knows? Who cares?
If he killed the cop, then I'm not sure I agree or disagree with the death sentence.
What I DO know is this: the evidence isn't strong enough to hang your hat on. And if there's ONE shred of "not sure" running through this, then there is NO WAY he should be killed. Terminated. Executed.
GOD BLESS AMERICA.
And, if there is a God, I pray to that God that he speaks to Judge Penny Freesemann, the only person in the world who can save Troy (and how the fuck did THAT happen?), and helps her to do the right thing.
The Libertarians have chipped in with "we STOP the state killing people"
The British Freedom Nazis have chipped in with "what about the WHITE people who were MURDERED by BLACK people".
