I have one question.Why would anyone want to name a park after a negro that shot a cop COLD BLOOD in the face?

Troy Davis is a black man and this is important to note.
In August 1989 Troy Davis shot a cop.
In August 1989 Troy Davis shot a cop in full view of dozens of witnesses in a Burger King parking lot.
In August 1989 Troy Davis shot a cop in full view of dozens of witnesses in a Burger King parking only a few hours after shooting at a passing car while exiting a party (said, 34 eye witnesses at the party).

After a two-week trial the jury of seven blacks and five whites took less than two hours to convict Davis of Officer Mark MacPhailÂ’s murder, as well as various other crimes. Two days later, the jury sentenced Troy Davis to death this week, 22 years after Troy Davis murdered Officer MacPhail, he was finally put to death.
