Troy Davis is Dead, and Now's an Excellent Time for a Riot

I'm just saying.

May the gods bless Troy Davis and his family, and may they wreak horrific vengeance on everyone who insisted upon his murder.

Georgian protesters, rise the fuck up and burn some shit to the ground already.

  3. Ankh: You read my mind. We seriously need to get like England and let people know: when an innocent man is put to death, black, white, red, green, it is not something to be slept on.

    Clearly, in this case, the supreme court and The Georgia Board of Pardons and Paroles has appeased the minority and the minority has won the vote against the majority.

    There were no more legal barriers for the execution of Davis after the fact that there was no finding whatsoever of: a gun..linking DNA..conclusive polygraph tests...yet there remains a possibility of the pigs coercing the testimony..a viable suspect who later confessed that it wasn't Davis possibly walking the streets RIGHT NOW.

    The Palpably unfair act of conviction lies with of The Georgia Board of Pardons and Paroles, Georgia Supreme Court, the County Courts,and the sentencing jury. This proves nothing more than in America, if you're poor and without the resources to challenge the system , a minority, or uneducated and the glove still don't fit, there is a likely chance you won't be acquitted.

    Davis' execution is nothing short of a 21rst century lynching, and the sad part is that it was as though he was a spectator in the crowd to the event as the whole thing unfolded.


    Justice has not been served to the Davis family and to the millions who knew as much as the Supreme court and anything with half a brain that there was too much doubt.

    and still it disturbs me when I realized that Charlie Manson will fall asleep in his cell tonight and Troy Davis has gone to an eternal sleep.

    definitely time to burn some shit.

  4. ..and according to reporters present, while Davis lay on the gurney they (the family members) stared at him, and after he took his final breath, they smiled and hugged each other.

    ..and may G-d damn the McPhail family for rejoicing in the loss of another family's loved one after knowing all too well the pain of such a loss.

  5. I can't really speak on this because I've been following he story and I'm just so damned sad about it.

  6. It is clear to me that we have never left the often spoken about time period where black people are hunted, prosecuted and murdered without impunity especially when there is no evidence. Everyone that participated in this travesty should never sleep well again!

    Seven of nine witnesses said they were coerced, the evidence was dodgy, and MacPhails still wanted his blood. They and the prosecutors were given at least four hours to tell the parole board why he should die; the board stopped the defense's presentation after three. He had to lie there on the gurney waiting to hear he was going to die for hours while the Supreme Court used their legal penises as pogo sticks. Scalia says, because of the constitution, the court isn't obligated to listen to you if you can prove your innocence after you've been convicted. Remember that.

    We can't riot. We'll be shot. The media would say we were criminals. The country wouldn't care. Nothing would change.

  10. I woke up this morning very nauseated.

    Last night, I ,like millions of supporters was hoping that Troy would be granted a stay,but it didn't surprise me. McPhail was White and he was a cop..if Troy wouldn't have paid it another Black man would have to. As a native Georgian, it's not only an embarrassment to my state,but to the world as well. I don't know what they were calling themselves doing,but now that this happened, the world knows how the U.S. is.

    Do you want to know something far more embarassing about Troy's execution? A couple of people on the Pardon and Parole board and the Savannah( GA) D.A. that sent him to his death were BLACK! I couldn't believe them! Normally, I don't say this word about any Black person and I'd never thought I would be saying ,but they are House N------s!Really they are.Even if the majority outweighed the minority, I still would not have said yes to Troy's execution.
    Often, I have heard people tell me that a good name means more than anything. There was no way I would have voted for Troy to be done that way. I would have to resign or to excuse myself from that case. I would want to be known as an HN and to carry that death on my shoulders for the rest of my life. I expect for the racist to not care about Troy's case,but I would expected better from the Black people that was on that board and his case. They make me sick!

    From what I seen, there were people from all backgrounds marching on his behalf not only in Savannah,but from all around the world. Though Troy died, he knew that he had friends on his corner. The next time somebody tells me that Black people " complain" too much, we have reasons to. Sitting silent and pretending that racism is dead isn't going to help nobody. It will only make White society want to use you and make fools out of them.

    Only racists like the McPhail family can see and smile about taking another life with doubt. I can see them " yep another "n" bites the dust"
    I've seen cases of innocent people being wrongly imprisoned,but the victim's family have some remorse about it. It is said that another man did this crime. Let's say that holds to be true. I would hope that the Davis family would sue the daylights out of the McPhail family, the Georgia and Paroles and the Savannah D.A. and I definitely agree, this fight with Troy Davis should stop because of his death, we should continue until they get the message no matter how long it takes.

    McPhail's mother says that justice has been done that they wanted Troy's family to feel their loss? No, I don't,nor do I feel their racism and don't want to

  11. I've felt sick, depressed and a little teary all day. It's official...stop the world, I want to get off.

  12. I'm from Georgia and I am NOT proud of that fact right now. I'm embarrassed and my heart and prayers are with the Davis family. The McPhails can take the express train straight to hell. I hope they never sleep again.

    That shit was wrong, plain and simple. I'm of the belief that TPTB knew they fucked up; that their case was shit, but to re-try Troy's case, or even grant him a stay of execution, would be admit that they were wrong, and those red-necked racist fucktards in Butts County aint about to do that shit.

    RIP Troy. You are loved.

  13. OMG, my thoughts exactly. Ok, I'm going to read the comments now.

  14. I didn't miss the fact that Laurence Brewer, the white supremacist who murdered James Byrd was also executed yesterday, and I strongly believe that was a lame attempt to shut people up about Troy.

    Well, it failed. Brewer shouldn't have been executed either. He deserved to rot in a prison hellhole for the rest of his life. That's why the death penalty really does need to be abolished. Imprisonment gives the innocent time, and the guilty the proper torment.

    RIP Troy Davis

  16. I have a hell of a lot to say about this, a hell of a lot. Right now, I'm trying to get my thoughts together. All I can say is that I'm not surprised. Yet, I'm deeply saddened by this travesty.

    Stay tuned...

  17. I said something about this...

  18. There was so much rage/disgust/fear all over the internet yesterday during the whole thing. Even a celebrity gossip site I'm apart of had a post dedicated to the whole thing as it was happening. Thousands of comments. Every single comment was so sad to read. All the POC expressed how now they fear living in this country. Everyone was saying how they were in tears, how they no longer have faith in the justice system, etc. Some are now boycotting Georgia products and some even want riots. This wasn't even on a political website by any means. This was on a website where people usually just talk crap about celebrities. Imagine the rage everywhere else.

    The moment he died it feels like a piece of everyone else did too.

  19. Also, fuck the McPhail family. Fuck everyone responsible for this tragedy. Fuck Ann Coulter's tactless ass too.

    What did Mann Coulter say about him? Knowing her, it was something incredibly stupid and trollish, just to get a rise out of people.

  21. @Franklin

    She tweeted, "ONE TROY DAVIS FLAME-BROILED, PLEASE," and, "HOLD THE PICKLE, HOLD THE LETTUCE. FRYING KILLERS WON'T UPSET US." Among other witless things.

    I hate real-life trolls like her and the fact that there are so many people foolish enough to agree.

    One the hand, since Davis died, I feel like it should be open season on the likes of Crowe and Dedmon.

    On the other hand, I want them to rot in prison for the rest of their miserable lives - no parole, no second chances.

    Especially fucking Dedmon. I want his ass to get sentenced for life while he's still a teenager, and may he never see daylight again. I hope his friends visit him in prison every week, talking about whom they're dating, where they're going on vacay next summer, and how awesome college is. I want him to spend his precious, irreplaceable youth behind bars, and I can't wait to hear about the bruhs fuckin' him up in jail.

    After watching Oz and getting a candid glimpse of the utter hell that prison is, I now fully oppose the death penalty. Send these motherfuckers to a place like Oz to rot for the rest of their lives, and give us annual updates on their misery.

    Laurence Piece-of-Shit Brewer is the last execution I'll celebrate.

    Remember everyone have to answer for their actions. May or maynot be jail time in a literal sense, but a brand on their name if they are not sorry.

    Casey Anthony, yes. Dedmon and Mehserle, doubtful. Anthony fucked up and hurt a small white child - her own, no less. white folks will hang that over her heads until the day her body mysteriously washes up in a river, and random black man is reported fleeing the scene of a crime which no one remembers witnessing, and if they remember witnessing it, they conveniently forgot to intervene.

    Dedmon and Mehserle, however, iced some Negroes (one who was gay, no less), so it's different...even though both were caught on tape. Mehserle has already walked. Dedmon may very well still walk after maybe doing a few years and suddenly finding Jesus. And then he'll be the poor boy who still has a bright future despite having gotten drunk, mixed up with the wrong people, and "allegedly" participating in this unfortunate, inconvenient, isolated event.

    I feel the same way. Part of me wants them to beat the overprivileged lives out of them, literally. At the same time part of me wants them to live in a man-made, concrete, steal-barred hell for the rest of their natural lives wishing they were dead.
