We all have a right to our opinion, like it or not

They need to "put to sleep" the persons that have caused serious crimes. If you kill someone, you pay with your life, It may change the problem all over America.
I was hoping this mans appeal would bring to lite the facts needed to end his prison sentence.
But he didnt testify or have anyone that may have seen someone else do the crime. Just wish that a person that does a crime would man up and say guilty. But to say their innocent and they have evidence proving they are not, is a crime in its self.

I said my piece on this case when they had the last hearing. This guy is guilty and Willie Moore gave him a fair hearing.

Time for Davis to face justice.

Did you attend the trial or the hearing? The federal judge who heard this case was one of the finest criminal defense attorneys in Georgia for many years before going on the bench.

The jury convicted him, appeals courts have reviewed the record and Willie Moore held a fair hearing. Time for Davis to meet his fate.

Has a rich person ever been executed in the United States? You can count them on one hand (http://www.straightdope.com/columns/read/2660/have-any-millionaires-ever-been-executed-in-the-united-states)!

Davis has been convicted by the jury of his peers.
He has been granted another hearing after the conviction.
He failed to sway the court
Time to finish it.

Our souls are diminished if we execute someone who should not be executed.

I have never understood why we don't have simple guidelines for when the death penalty becomes a choice. We have executed people and found out later that they truly were innocent. We need to look at these issues and make better decisions. Once someone is dead you can't take it back; it's final. They aren't coming back.

And you can be sure they will never kil again.

Thats fine. Lets just not value one persons life more than anothers. I never saw the virtue of a cop's life over someone elses when it comes to punishment.

Although I am not fond of the death penalty. I do believe it is cruel to the inmate to lock someone up for a massive amount of time. Then it's also not fair to the taxpayer to be charged around $60,000 per year to care for an inmate for 30 to 50 years.Yes, I worry about executing an innocent person but prisons are meant to punish and rehabilitate a person, then release them back into society. Murder's do not ever belong back in society period! You will never hear me say we have a perfect legal system but we do have one of the best systems in the world. They are judged by their fellow citizens and convicted beyond all reasonable doubts. They have numerous appeal processes so their cases are reviewed numerous times for errors. This article doesn't give enough details, and is vague at best. It does however suggest that he was given several opportunities to state his innocence which the article stated he did not or even take stand much less call witnesses to testify. When an individual won't take the stand in their own defense then I feel they have something to hide. Although he may say he's innocent his actions are giving the impression otherwise.

constitution not institution......

I recently watched a special on netflix streamline, frontline special....96% of all death row inmates either from the beginning or with in thier incarceration time they admit thier guilt, and ask for forgiveness, also there are 1.3% of them have been found not guilty after thier execution, due to dna evidence...Which begs me to suggest that is it ok to send even 1 man to death with out 100% sureity of his guilt, I know many people will argue this fact, and thier are many victims families out there who need justice, but even 1 man to be put to death is to many....

This stat is for all that want to claim the "race card"Since the death penalty was reinstated in 1976, 1,266 convicted murderers have been executed in the United States. (As of September 1, 2011)

Of those executed, 12 were female. (The last was Teresa Wilson Lewis in Virginia on September 23, 2010).

Of those executed, 718 (57%) were white and 429 (34%) were black.

Executions were held in 34 different states: 473 (37%) were in Texas and 20 (1.5%) were in Indiana.

Of those executed:

1092 (86%) were executed by lethal injection, including 616 of the last 626 executions.

157 were executed by electric chair (The last was Paul Warner Powell in Virginia on March 18, 2010).
Florida 44, Virginia 30, Alabama 24, Georgia 23, Louisiana 20, South Carolina 7, Indiana 3, Nebraska 3, Kentucky 1, Arkansas 1, Tennessee 1.

11 were executed by gas chamber (The last was Walter LeGrand in Arizona on March 3, 1999).
Mississippi 4, California 2, North Carolina 2, Arizona 2, Nevada 1.

3 were executed by hanging (The last was Billy Bailey in Delaware on January 25, 1996).
Washington 2, Delaware 1.

3 were executed by firing squad (The last was Ronnie Lee Gardner in Utah on June 18, 2010).
Utah 3.

18% American blacks and 34% blacks executed? Sounds racist to me. And...it is about guilt and innocents. 'Pears Davis is an innocent. But don't worry about what the Pope recommends...Georgia is Protestant.

Actually there is only 12.6% blacks in America (including Hispanic blacks), while the prison population is 39.4% black (not including Hispanic blacks)..

So 34% executed blacks is actually below the almost 40% of prison population; so proportionally more white prisoners are executed.

You don't even know how to play the race card..

It's sad that you see abolition as a racial issue. When will you ever stop? You've been doing this ever since OJ. It was not race that acquitted OJ. It was your own jury system. One of the greatest abolitionists besides Frederick Douglas was White. We want to abolish state sanctioned murder for all.
01:05 AM on 09/08/2011
I took the time to read the comments here since I was not familiar with the case. I was appalled to see many felt the execution was only taking place because of color. I posted the stats to show (and added a comment as well) to say this is not about race but guilt or innocents.
I am not a jury member, but I must wonder why after winning an appeal to give the true facts, he choose to sit on them. No, this does not make him guilty but you have to wonder what he was thinking.
01:29 AM on 09/08/2011
You mean our jury who said they were sick to their stomachs when they were finally allowed to look at all the evidence?
And that was very much a racial issue. The blacks threatened to hurt whites and basically destroy the city if he was found guilty, even tho everyone knew he was.
Act in a respectable manner and maybe someday you will get respect. Stop ruining every neighborhood or city you move to, make it better, not worse, and we'll think about it. Name one city or 'hood" as you call them that didn't get worse after blacks moved in. Name a beautiful city anywhere in the world that is mostly black. There are none.
As for murdering a murderer, what's wrong with that? I don't want him around and I don't want my tax dollars supporting him. The blacks in prisons are costing more than blacks pay in taxes period. Who do you think has to pay the difference? Not to mention welfare. Ever been to a welfare office? Not a white in sight.

Hey were talking an Southern State, where they support there prosecutors one hundred percent,
even when the evidence provided has been proven beyound a resoanble doubt to be false.
The South is ripe with such cases. They protect there Prosecutors and all members of there Law Enforcment employees, wweather they be police, Prosecutors or sham scientists who have not graduated from the 5th grade. Its all family down there from the Judges on down. And no one is going to question family becuse it would open the whole system to outside investigation and they would all at least be out of jobs if not in jail, with the people they put there.
