Troy Davis Petition Denied

Today, the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals denied Troy Davis’ petition to file a second habeas petition in Federal district court.  The decision is here.  The vote of the three-judge panel was 2-1.  The Court did extend Davis’ stay of execution for 30 days to give him a chance to file a habeas corpus petition with the US Supreme Court.

  1. While the 30-day stay keeps the state of Georgia from immediately scheduling another execution date, it seems to me that it was more likely a way to keep Davis' blood off the hands of Justices Marcus and Dubina. Kudos to Justice Barkett for acknowledging the inhumanity of a system that does not protect the innocent from execution.

  2. my goodness, this is just a rollercoaster from hell of a ride since July of 07' Goodness hopefully the supremes will get it right this time and grant this man a new trial

  5. I have to wonder how many innocent men have been wrongfully convicted and then sentenced to die. I don't know if that's the case here, but it's a sad thought.

  6. Somehow, it felt like a repeat of Passions' blackmailer saga, when Luis Lopez-Fitzgerald was wrongfully convicted and executed for a murder crime he did not commit; but fortunately Endora set everyone back to an earlier point in time so that they could save Luis and expose Vincent Crane as the blackmailer/murderer/rapist who manipulated and played them all for fools; whose plan all along was to kill and execute innocents, eradicate the Lopez-Fitzgerald family line, and cause Fancy and Sheridan to be so consumed with despair, that they'd lose faith. For me, punishing a murder crime (even if it wasn't committed) with another murder crime, which is what killing for justification really is, means that people everywhere are still demanding an eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth. And yet the MacPhail family is still wanting Troy Davis dead while ignoring his innocence evidence and the fact that the real killer is still on the loose. My heart is breaking for both families of the MacPhails and the Davises. :(

  13. It appears the post-Bush "Ownership Society" faction is still out to force its brief and agenda on all the Rest of Us, no matter the crimes it must commit upon us all while carrying on with its bloody-minded, cack-handed handed ongoing effort toward Total Spectrum Dominance and the end of all Lawful speaking of Truth to Power. A greedy, power-covetous toady unto The System and its top-dog political savages simply cannot afford to be found fallible in any capital case, now can one?

    One finds it especially sad that the victim's family is apparently quite willing to settle for the infandous-as-ever "Catch-a-Nigger" approach to forensic analysis and prosecutoral practice. Should the State of Georgia continue to stand in agreement with that unspeakably odious attitude in its public policy, Governor Sonny Perdue shall become none other than the Next Murderer in the Chain of Homicide.

    Perhaps that is what the man must do in order to at last be counted as "One of Us" by his elite-class sponsors. It is well known that an aspiring man must have innocent blood on his hands to be accepted at all as a Prince of the Order. (Remember Mr. Richard B. Cheney's Texas Quail-Hunt and his Remarkably Apologetic Though Lead-Laden Lawyer-"Friend"? Prime example, that one.)

    IMVHO, Mr. Perdue would do best to adopt the John 8:32 Standard of Civil Governance and abandon all prior hope of truthless though certainly entirely expedient face-saving cover. He can arrange a lawyer-shoot as well as Mr. Cheney; murdering a helpless and innocent black man is too savagely over-the-top to put up with as I find it. His so adopting will in due course reliably enable his own immortal and eternally conscious soul to be Lawfully received into High Holy Human Heaven on the wings of angels.

    But is that what a double-minded, power-hungry and ruthlessly ambitious Luciferian wannabee elitist would want?

    I for one am not so sure about that. All I do know is that the Elite Class is defined by two things: Its HUGE money (which reliably impoverishes 'em in the midst of all manner of true wealth in this life and the next) and its ability to "Get Away With Murder" while batting not one eyelash over the snuffing-out of any human life at all.

    Rest assured, my friends, that there is indeed a Just Judge to be found within Heaven's holy heart. IMVHO, Mister Perdue would be wise indeed to consider the longest-term consequences of his official actions while on Earth with more genuine care and less of a mind toward enforcing a murderously deadly falsity on us all than he has yet to date apparently undertaken.

    I am Walking Turtle. Mister Perdue's office phone is all over the Internet; a Google in time might save a life or two. I have now spoken to all as I did exactly once speak to the Governor's Receptionist, who did faithfully promise to pass the Message on up to The Man Himself. Others just might also want to inform The Man Himself that he does not operate in a Vacuum of Darkness and Secrecy at all, as well.

    I think that so long as Himself's Receptionist is indeed truly faithful in their Mission of Message Delivery, all can yet be well. with no more innocent blood forced off the planet.

    And that is all.

  15. I'm so sick and tired of innocent people being accused and punished for something that someone else has done. You want to know why these
    people turn their heads ,, because they are just too lazy to look or go after
    the person responsible . Makes me sick to my stomach when the innocent
    people take the fall ,, no one wants to look into it more or take the time to make sure what they are doing and the person they are accusing is accurate.
    He does NOT deserve this nor does any other innocent people. We had a man
    here in Connecticut get put away for 21 years ( accused of manslaughter ) was
    put on death row. He went to his last trial and he was told he was being excused of all charges ,, they apologized to him for wrongful imprisonment. They then turnned around and offered a big chunk of money .. that DOESN'T give that poor man and his family all those years back of his life . What is wrong with this world?
