Troy Davis

"People who thought they supported capital punishment yesterday will realize they cannot today. Because people who thought they could stand on the sidelines will realize they no longer can."

-Ben Jealous, NAACP president

Yesterday, I believed in capital punishment. Today, I don't know what I believe.

To kill Troy Davis would be nothing short of murder. Murder is wrong.

May God have mercy on the merciless decision-makers in the state of Georgia. Lord, open their eyes and allow them to see the error of their ways.

Lord, please be with troy and comfort him in the midst of this trial.

  1. Yeah, it's kind of weird to me that there are so many who support Capital Punishment without realizing that opponents of it aren't sanctioning crime but trying to protect people who have been convicted with bias. I don't know the details of Troy's case, but I hope these kind of issues get resolved before anyone ever considered ending a convicted person's life again.
