Way to go Georgia. You ran out immigrants and your crops rotted for lack of cheap labor, and apparently your conscience doesn't trouble you over killing a very possibly innocent man. You've just edged out Texas and Utah in the backward states competition. You've also embarrassed the U.S. before the whole world. Congratulations.

Troy Davis' last words:

"I'd like to address the MacPhail family. Let you know, despite the situation you are in, I'm not the one who personally killed your son, your father, your brother. I am innocent.

The incident that happened that night is not my fault. I did not have a gun. All I can ask ... is that you look deeper into this case so that you really can finally see the truth.

I ask my family and friends to continue to fight this fight.

For those about to take my life, God have mercy on your souls. And may God bless your souls."

RIP, Troy. I hope your name is cleared and that you inspire people to rise up and change our laws to eliminate the death penalty.

Imprisoning or executing an innocent man means a guilty man gets off scott-free. I hope they realize that. But I bet they won't.
