Well, it finally happened. Troy Davis, a man in Georgia accused of shooting a cop back in 1989 or 1990 I believe, was finally convicted and sentenced to death. Even though there was still doubt that he was guilty, and his last words claimed his innocence, he was still executed.

I'm at a lost of words.


It tolls for thee.

Is it because he was black, and it was in Georgia?

I'm going to say it was because of accusations of killing a cop, which is grounds for a death sentence in the south regardless of your color
