    I think the problem, bones, is that a) the criminal justice system is about punishment of a perpetrator and not providing satisfaction for a victim's family; and b) in this particular case a good number of the people who testified against troy davis have recanted. that might not have gotten him exonerrated, but it should have been explored....

    Some of us don't need any dead body to make us feel better.

    True. We spend too much time fretting about the perps, and not enough on the victims.

    It's supposed to be about justice. And that is all it should be about.

    There are agendas behind this execution.... I personally refuse to be swayed into a guilt trip by a bunch of do gooders who want to abolish the DP.

    Thanks for calling attention to the victim, strollingbones.

    Considering that 7 of the 9 witnesses recanted, coupled with the fact that several witnesses said they were coerced by the police, as well as the fact that the ballistics didn't match up, yeah.......I think he should have been given a stay until it could have been sorted out.

    As far as Macphail's family stating they were thirsty for justice, not blood? If they were truly interested in justice, then Mr. Davis should have been given a new trial.

    From the sounds of this, it was a railroad job and would have been considered a mistrial, but the state just wanted to put it behind them.
