Moral of the story is...
Black man kills a white off duty cop, he shouldn't die and he was innocent.
White man kill a black man...yay death penalty.

Maybe he was no saint. But to opponents of the death penalty, Troy Davis has become a martyr sacrificed on an altar of indifference to common sense, fair play and ultimately justice.
There are no mulligans on death row.
So if the state of Georgia is going to extract the ultimate sanction in taking a life, doesn't it stand to reason that the prisoner strapped to a gurney awaiting a lethal injection should really be guilty beyond a reasonable doubt?
Now give careful consideration to what Ruth is actually saying here. He's not an ignorant man, so we have to believe that he understands what he is saying.
Troy Davis was indeed found guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. Not in some liberal's nightmare of the "Old South", but by a jury of his peers, including some peers his same coloration.
So we have to conclude, that Daniel Ruth believes that such cases should go not to the appeals courts (which did not reverse) , but to The Coliseum, where the public rather than a jury can decide whether Davis was guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.
That's exactly what he's saying. He's saying that the public, the crowd, rather than the jury and the courts should decide guilt, innocence, and sentencing.

Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!

I like that video that's floating around of the guy who said that the method of execution should be that the inmate should be strapped face down, a hole punched into the base of his skull, and his brains sucked out with a high powered vacuum. And instead of calling it an execution, they can call it the states right to choose.
