So, I hear that the "world" is "shocked" that the US has executed Troy "cop killer" Davis.
Well, here's a tip for the "world";
Stop accepting the money, aid, and military protection that the US gives you free of charge.
The "world" should also stop immigrating to the United States.
BTW, does anyone recall hearing that the "world" was "shocked" at the murder of this cop?
No, I didn't think so...
A government or country can and should be criticized for it's actions regardless of how many immigrants they accept and how much aid they give. We have a lot of immigrants here too and we give money and aid to other countries. But, IMO, that does not mean that we shouldn't be criticized if we do something wrong over here.
Sometimes the criticism is baseless, but then we should argue against the criticism based on that and not just state that we shouldn't be criticized in any way at all because we give away money and accept people into our countries.

The post I replied to was talking about the execution in TX.
This is the case about the guy in Georgia. The case in which 7 of 9 witnesses changed their story. The dragging case was in Texas, but not this case.

The guy was black. If he didn't kill the cop I'm sure he killed others and/or committed enough crimes he deserved it.
Yea, Gads, are you saying if I had been born black then I might be a killer? LOL

Also, no, I am not black, but I lived through prejudice and learned to see that I was wrong. I lived completey in a white world. There were no blacks in my neighborhood, none in my church, none in my schools, and could not even drink from the same fountain as me at one store. So, if I can wake up maybe so can you.

Also, even if he had committed other crime--no this does not mean he deserve death. Death is suppose to be for the most serious of crimes. It should also be with no doubt of the crime.

Good, you got one partially correct. Yep the guy was in GA. Nope. 7 0f the 9 witnesses did not change their story in this case. Read the decision, all 172 pages of it, by the Federal District Judge who held the hearings ordered by the US Supreme Court. You might lern something, but I doubt it.

Funny, nobody cared that they put the white supremacist that killed the black man to death tonight out in Texas.
He said he was innocent also.
There are people who care. Dick Gregory, civil rights activist, was there to protest the execution of James Byrd. It is hard, really, to get the media to cover some stories...I guess they can't cover them all; but we all know what is going on with Charlie Sheen :-) don't we? The media is all over that!

Sooooooo...??? Yet he's replaced by the several who murdered him...Wow...that makes a lot of sense to me...replace one murderer with several murderers...a murderer is a murderer no matter how "nice and legal" anyone tries to make it.

In court, Brewer said "I didnt intend to cause his death". So I guess he wanted people to believe that dragging this chained man behind the truck was an accident?
Its possible the dumb shit was telling the truth. He just watched too many movies. See Hollywood is to blame.
