I read it and agree. More social justice for America! Open your eyes, Georgia! Troy Davis was a human being, it could be any of your sons. We should do more to help our youth at risk...and prevent this in the future.

If my son was even remotely associated with the murder of another I would put him down myself.

Blacks don't want any help with their children, they believe they're raising them just right.Just look at them go.

The death penalty is a degrading proof of man's inhumanity to man. It shows that man is still living in the barbarous age. Civilization still remains an idea - it has not become a reality.

The death penalty is so idiotic that you will have to look from all the aspects to understand why such an idiotic thing has continued in all the civilizations, cultures, nations. Even in a few countries where it was dropped it has been adopted again. In a few other countries where it has been dropped, it has been replaced by life imprisonment - which is worse than the death penalty itself. It is better to die in a single moment than to go on dying slowly for fifty years, sixty years.

Changing from the death penalty to a life sentence is going not towards civilization, it is going still deeper into barbarous, inhuman darkness, unconsciousness.

The first thing to remember is that the death penalty is not really a punishment. If you cannot give life as a reward, you cannot give death as a penalty. This is a simple logic, there cannot be two opinions about it. If you cannot give life to people, what right have you to take their life?

The death penalty is a reward to the murder of a fellow human for his inhuman actions. Justice shall prevail when the justice system will allow us to kill the murderers as they killed those they murdered. Justice to these killers should be swift and not take 20 years to occur.

You can argue with a dead master but you cannot argue with the facts which clearly show the death penalty is not a deterrent. It is nothing more than vengeance and far too often perpetrated by those who's religious beliefs include the quote "vengeance is mine, sayeth the Lord" No, like 99% of bible belt Christians you are stuck in the wrong testament, the Old one which speaks of an eye for an eye.

Check the statistics. The states where the death penalty is enforced have some of the highest murder rates in the country compared with states which do not have it.

If he was treated unfairly, Satan will sort it out for him. Maybe make him an incubus or other high-ranking demon. They are probably working on it as I type.

He was not murdered. He was executed after exhausting due process. Learn the difference. McPhail was murdered, with no chance to defend himself while trying to help someone.

Death penalty is, right or wrong a perfect deterrent...there has NEVER been a repeat offender case once the death sentence was carried out.

What a joker you are. Sorry, not funny. The death penalty is murder, clear and simple. It may be legal but it ought not be and one day it will be judged for what it is and abolished from the books. Your death penalty has also murdered many innocent men which is something ignorant people like yourself prefer to ignore. By the way, this is not a political issue, it's a moral one and low and behold who are the most vehement in favor of it? Duh,. evangelical Christians like Rick Perry and George W Bush.

Now what I don't understand is why the murderer of Hugo Arrango, an off duty cop in Doraville, got life and Troy Davis got death????

Was it because the murderer of Arrango was HISPANIC and the murderer of the Savannah cop was BLACK????

I just don't get justice in Georgia!

Did you sit in on the trial and get ALL the details? There may have been more facts that the jury weighed than was in the news.

And what a dumbazz you are. Do you think we should just let these jerks it in prison while the states go broke feeding their stupid butts? I say hang their ass on the day they are found quilty and yeah that will deter alot of crimes. Ignorant people like yourself is the reason these crimes continue to happen. Get a freakin clue and get over this damn coddling of the wrong doers!

If this cop or any other victims was in your family you would have a different outlook. It's so easy to sit around and yell about how unfair our justice system is if you've never been the victim of a crime....
