"You can say they deserve to die, but the key moral question is 'Do we deserve to kill?'" -- Sr. Helen Prejean
I have no idea if Troy Davis was guilty or not. I simply find it objectionable and hypocritical that killing is punishable by killing. Further, the State should in no way have the power to execute people. For all those pissed at "liberal fucktards" opposed to the death penalty all I have to point out is that it is unconscionable to allow even one innocent person be executed by the State in some vengeance ceremony. Innocent people have been executed. It has happened and it has been proven that it has happened.
For all the Conservatives rattling their sabers about it I find that it sadly hilarious that in other much more benign cases the government is this great, monstrous evil; and yet you have no issue with the government given the power to actually kill someone! As if the system was perfect. It’s contradictory and it is hypocritical. Further, for those of you that call yourself Christians and favor the death penalty you are the highest of hypocrites.
And for the record; in Texas last night that White Supremacist piece of shit that killed James Byrd was executed. I am opposed to it in that case as well.
