Murder is Murder

53 minutes ago the state of Georgia executed Troy Davis. 53 minutes ago a man--a life was taken. "You can say they deserve to die, but the key moral question is 'Do we deserve to kill?'" -- Helen Prejean The problem with the death penalty is that it is final. You don't get a do-over. Once that poison has entered the veins and had the desired effect, it is over. The finality of this action means that we must get it right...every time. No exceptions. The act tonight saddens my heart. I repeat Troy Davis, "Lord, please have mercy on their souls. Bless their hearts." September 21, 2011 is a sad day for justice; a sad day for our country.
