NO the court would not hear such a case with such defenders of justice as Injustices “Uncle” Thomas and Scalia on board.

re: #1 LudwigVanQuixote

Downding for the on-the-sly “Uncle Tom” reference to Clarence Thomas…regardless of the SCOTUS’ decision not to hear the appeal or your feelings about Thomas, I can’t abide the use of such a loaded term to describe a black person.

Fair enough, but he seems to hate black folks a lot.

Of course the “Anti government” right wingers who get elected railing about government’s role in health care, education, etc will be strangely quiet when it comes to the government taking a life. This case is why I hate the death penalty. The possibility of an innocent man being executed just breaks my heart.

Exactly. “Pro life”, my ass: They seem to be quite okay with government murdering sinners and foreigners.

“This case has really revealed to the world that we cannot continue with this system,” Amnesty International USA Executive Director Larry Cox said just now. “I think people know in their hearts that this is shameful.”

Terry Moran, who covers the Supreme Court for ABC News: “Another man confessed. Seven eyewitnesses recanted. Police accused of coercing witnesses. No DNA. No murder weapon. Justice?”

Former FBI Director William S. Sessions on this case: “When it comes to the sentence of death, there should be no room for doubt.”

[…]

The execution began at 10:53pm. Troy Davis was reported dead at 11:08PM ET. Media witnesses say that he refused a final meal; he refused a final prayer; he did not take an anti-convulsive, anti-anxiety, hypnotic drug called Ativan that was offered to him to ease the procedure. As is customary with prisoner executions in the United States, his death certificate will be marked “homicide.”

The final words of Troy Davis at his execution, according to media witnesses:

The incident that took place that night was not my fault. I did not have a gun. [Addressing the victim’s family] I did not personally kill your son, father, brother; I am innocent. Look deeper in this case, so you can find the truth. To the people who are about to take my life: May God have mercy on your soul. May God bless your soul.

Hey, another clear case. Good riddance!

I have no idea whether David was guilty or not, certainly the amount of recantations does make one at least pause, though it’s not an absolute indicator of his innocence, and maybe there is evidence in the case that outweighs what seems like a corrupt cops work. But that’s exactly why you don’t execute people - any people. Obviously, the judges who sentenced him thought this was a clear case. And it doesn’t seem to be such.

I wonder what our Lizard supporters of DP have to say about this.
