Free Troy Davis! The Whole Damn System is Guilty
What does it say that a man for whom there is no physical evidence of his guilt is about to be executed?
What does it say that despite 7 out of 9 witnesses recanting, the system is pushing ahead with his execution?
What does it say that it has come out that police pressured witnesses to identify Troy Davis in the first place?
What does it say that over a million people have signed a petition worldwide to get him a stay of execution and this is being ignored?
What does it say that so many of the Black people pouring out among the protesters are so familiar with being wrongly criminalized that they are taking up the slogan, "I am Troy Davis"?
What does it say that the Supreme Court of the land is letting this go down?
What does it say that the "first Black President" is totally fucking silent and COMPLICIT!?
THE WHOLE DAMN SYSTEM IS GUILTY.
THE DEATH PENALTY IS ILLEGITIMATE -- TRUE, BUT ITS DEEPER THAN THAT. THE WHOLE DAMN SYSTEM IS GUILTY.
JOIN THE PROTESTS HAPPENING IN GEORGIA. JOIN THE PROTESTS IN HARLEM NEW YORK. GET IN THE STREETS WHEREVER YOU ARE. TWEET ABOUT IT. CALL IN TO THE PRESIDENT. MAKE SOME FUCKING NOISE AND DON'T STOP.
