    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.

    That is about the size of it. Damn liberals with their white guilt complex.

    I don't think either should have been killed though.
    Reading Daniel Ruth's column today, it is consistent with what I see in a lot of the folks up in arms about the Troy Davis execution.

    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.

    Neither of them should have been executed.

    Good thing you and your ilk are not in charge then because, if two people ever needed killing, it was these two POS.

    Oh, spare us. You constantly demand more power for government over every aspect of the lives of people whose only crime is wanting to pursue their own happiness, but when someone commits a real crime, you're suddenly appalled that government has the power to inflict punishment. Besides, we all know that if they were capitalists who'd fought to keep their wealth, you'd have been the first one to demand their execution. Your hypocrisy couldn't be more blatant.

    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.
