As you all know about the Troy Davis execution that took place last night.. you should know about the major international protest it caused. It is a sad thing to me just because I am strongly against the death penalty to begin with, but it’s even more sad that people waited this long to even say anything. To clear a a case on such shakey grounds is a testament to how much we let the justice system get away with.
When I first heard the story, I thought why are people saying this NOW…..where was this outcry for justice in 1990, 1991, 1992, 1993…… why didnt I GROW UP just knowing about Troy Davis… why only weeks before his planned execution? There are MILLIONS of men and women just like Troy Davis, convicted on little evidence and alot of hearsay.. there should be a protest every damn day..
Let this be a lesson to us all. To be slow to action, means to be quick to judgement.. if we want change.. we have to be it.. educate and dominate… regardless of ethnicity, creed or background no innocent human being should be behind bars let alone on death row.
