Abolish the death penality by derkert Abolish the death penality by derkert
21 September 2011

Amnesty International has condemned the decision by authorities in the state of Georgia to execute death row prisoner Troy Davis.

Troy Davis, 42, who had been on death row since 1991, was executed by lethal injection at the Georgia state prison in Jackson on Wednesday, despite serious doubts surrounding his conviction.

When there is no justice, what is left? Answer: revenge... This is the real reason we have a death penalty, so there will be less non-judicial punishment as you have pictured in your collage.

It seems to be working. No mobs have formed to go and get James Holmes out of his cell. Most people do believe that the system will deliver some sort of justice. If the death penalty was not on the table, it might be a different story.

Death penalties.... < : (
A really, really, really, bad thing about death penalty is that there has been innocent people that have died from it...I feel so sorry for them. And it's like something wicked that still lives from the past. But thankfully, all the other things, like slavery etc. is now illegal. But we still have this...Don't worry. It'll probably go away just like slavery someday...
And amazing art. : )

Let's not forget that two men were executed yesterday. Troy Davis received considerably more media focus, but neither should have happened. The other execution was lacking in the "reasonable doubt" - he was undoubtedly guilty of the heinous crime he committed. However, even the son of the man he murdered condemned the execution, as one murder for another murder does not equal justice.

I agree...ABOLISH the death penalty.
