Being that I am a criminal justice major, I am VERY upset with how the state of Georgia is handling the Troy Davis case. Everything is clear cut but they fail to grant Davis clemency for a crime he DID NOT commit! Witnesses have came forth and said their testimonies were fake and coerced! I mean really, what more do you need! You have NO physical evidence that he was the shooter and all the eyewitnesses provided false statements. How can you convict someone under these circumstances? Is the state of Georgia really that racist or are they just that unfair? I’m pissed off because, I hate this unfair justice system. There is no way, you can take an INNOCENT man’s life and not fee guilty! What happen to due process? Rights to a fair trial? INNOCENT UNTIL PROVEN GUILTY? CRUEL AND UNUSUAL PUNISHMENT? Are these amendments being ignored? This man has yet to be proven guilty! His mom died after receiving a letter of his denial and execution date. She had just received a letter from her doctor stating that she was very healthy the day before, so who’s to blame for that? Looks like the Governor has committed a crime. Put him to death! His sister is battling stage four breast cancer, and is also fighting for her life.
The parole and probation board in the State of Georgia denied his clemency. I do not believe the justice system is fair and I believe the state of Georgia is in for a rude awakening if Troy Davis is executed tomorrow. Notice the punishment is only this severe because it was a cop. Troy Davis, an innocent man wrongfully convicted of killing a police officer is sentenced to death. Three officers shoot one Man, Sean Bell, over 50 times, are released back to there families. Now you tell me…..Does this sound like justice?
Governors and Criminal Justice officials should not make decisions based on PERSONAL beliefs and Feelings. Base them on the FACTS! And in this case, the Facts Prove that Troy Davis is NOT GUILTY and he should be released to his family!
