Troy Davis

Troy Davis has been denied what is likely his last chance at clemency by the Georgia Board of Pardons & Paroles. I'm guessing that President Obama is his last hope, and the chances of that happening in this particular year are next to nothing.

Personally, I have no issue with someone being lethally injected for committing acts of violent and premeditated murder, none at all, but those poor, innocent families that are left behind. As if they haven't suffered enough already by having a convicted killer in the family, we can only surmise at the unimaginable pain they experience when their family member is put to death. Focus solely on the crimes of these vicious and callous murderers and for many of us it is really quite easy to support the death penalty. If we stop for a moment, though, and consider the families of these killers in a way that they themselves never did when they committed their murderous acts, we might just be satisfied with life in prison without parole, at least, that's my view.
