It's really too bad that "Judge Mathis" was unfamiliar with the case. I stopped listening when he said 7 of the 9 witnesses.. There were 34 witnesses in case people would like to know.

7 people recanted? That's a joke also.
Quote:
The 7 recantations is what the defense is throwing around to the public. But the Judge points out that it's not 7 recantations at all.

- 2 of them were statements differing a little before the trial. However, these were both brought up at trial and the witnesses did not say they lied or were coerced at all.

- 2 of them were impossible to believe according to the judge because they didn't match up with other testimony at all. One of them in fact conflicted with Davis' own Mothers testimony.

- 2 were just affadavits and the defense refused to put them live on the stand (and thus able to be cross-examined). The judge called this suspicious.

- 1 was a credible recantation but the Judge felt his testimony was of limited value for the prosecution.
Really? This is what you are you are basing the request for a retrial on, out of 34 witnesses?

Troy Davis was guilty. There is absolutely no doubt as to that fact. Do the research; read the 2009 ruling of Judge Moore, the Federal Judge whom denied Davis' petition for habeas corpus. In the text of that ruling Judge Moore details just why Davis was guilty. Or you could choose to continue on being intellectually lazy. Your choice.

I hope Troy Davis's executioner can't live with himself. This case was sad and wrong on many levels.

The bully never stops because you beg him/her to. You must become so strong that you kill the bully.

So - are you opposed to the death penalty or not?

I don't understand - if you don't think Troy Davis should have been executed then why are you advocating for the execution of another man? Shouldn't we be glad that another life won't be extinguished?

Why bring race into the discussion?
