Troy Davis executed in Georgia
CBS ^

Posted on 09/21/2011 9:10:07 PM PDT by Borough Park

(CBS/AP)  JACKSON, Ga. - Georgia executed Troy Davis on Wednesday night for the murder of an off-duty police officer, a crime he denied committing right to the end as supporters around the world mourned and declared that an innocent man was put to death.

Defiant to the end, he told relatives of Mark MacPhail that his 1989 slaying was not his fault. "I did not have a gun," he insisted.

And in the meantime, the Twitter crazies are being whipped into a frenzy against not only Justice Clarence Thomas, but against Michelle Malkin(??) by Alec Baldwin:

Michelle’s getting quite a few threats from these creatures.

It’s weird how so many pro-abortion, baby killers can get themselves so worked up over the execution of a cop killer. They’ll get over it.

Not one Supreme Court Justice was in favor of staying his execution. Just proves it’s the usual anti-death penalty/liberal/racist mob since they single out Thomas.

Why not call out Souter or Ginsburg?

Killed a cop. Justice was deserved. I don’t mourn Justice.

She is getting death threats like crazy by the lefties. What the hell did Malkin do? She didn’t do anything, why the hell are they going after her? And the idiots who are making death threats against her, the cops will be at their door shortly since they can easily be identified by their twitter name and IP address

Exactly, how come they are not going after the LIBERAL judges who also denied his stay of execution..I dont see any of the liberal freakazoids going after them..because they would never go after their own kind, instead they will focus on Clarence Thomas because they hate him..Justice was served, RIP Mark MacPhail, the REAL victim here, gone but never forgotten!

I’m not entirely sure what you meant by that. Anyway, congratulations to Georgia where cop-killers really get what they deserve.

Has anyone heard about any street level reaction to this in Atlanta or Macon?

I like the pic.

However, it’s ironic you use the A-Team for an execution article. The show specifically never killed anyone, even though there was gunfire all over. They just never hit anyone and killed them. It was totally on purpose too. Tehy never wanted to do it.

I think in this case he’d still be giving the thumbs up.

The phrase is the first think that popped into my head when I read the article. What are you going to do?

“Amnesty International says nearly 1 million people had signed a petition on Davis’ behalf”
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
The day something like this petition has any bearing on our justice system is the day we can toss the whole thing off the fantail and switch to the law of the jungle.

Bullshit CBS article. Read Ann Coulter’s column and find out about the other 27 witnesses, including close-up eyewitnesses who saw the shooting.

Those who “recanted” had some very serious credibility issues.

The officer was shot under his vest and in the head. A lot of people saw this, and even got his shirt color/writings right.

The guy did it in cold blood. He’s dead. GOOD.

CBS = Cold Blood Shooter Supporter
