I didn't know squat about this case so I went a looking. Came up with this little tidbit.
Troy Davis Wiki
Legal experts argued that a major obstacle to granting Davis a new trial was the Antiterrorism and Effective Death Penalty Act of 1996, passed
after the Oklahoma City bombing, which restrained federal courts from overturning death penalty convictions, and ordering new trials. Legal
authorities have criticized the restricting effect of the 1996 Act on the ability of wrongfully convicted persons to prove their innocence.
So this guy can't get a fair trial because of ridiculous anti-terrorism laws? What the hell did this guy do that involved a terror attack on the US?
So why the hell is this law being used against him? 7 of 9 witnesses either recanted or changed their stories and this guy can't get a real trial?
Are you frakking kidding me?
It's really quite sickening. I'd love to use these anti-terror bills against the frakkers that passed them, they are the real terrorists.
How am I supposed to be "patriotic", "love my country", "support the troops" as they are fighting for "freedom", and all that BS, when I live
in a fascist country that has no desire to ensure my rights as enumerated by the bloody CONSTITUTION!!!!! I'm pissed at my country, at the people
being so stupid and letting things get so bad, at the people running it who are clearly psychopaths, at the MSM media machine that repeatedly lies to
us, at our government which does the same, all to keep us in a state of fear about some imaginary foe thousands of miles from here that cannot hurt us
at all, yet is used against us(not the imaginary foe, but us) to keep us enslaved.
Troy Davis is going to get murdered by the state unless he can get a fair trial, which may result in the same fate, except this time it wouldn't be
done with tarnished testimony. It's pretty obvious, even to me who just heard of this case, that there was a lot of hinkyness with the first
trial(police coercion, anyone?). This is a travesty, to our justice system, to our way of life, to Troy Davis, to the dead cop who deserves, at least,
to have the right guy put behind bars for his death.
What a sad country we live in. Land of the free, home of the brave? Who's free nowadays? Who's brave enough to fight the entire corrupt system?
