11:08 EST is a time that will be forever in our memories. Tonight at 11:08 another black man was killed by the American Government. His name was Troy Davis. I had to go and do my research on this case so I could be informed.  He allegedly killed an off-duty police officer 22yrs ago. He maintained his innocence until his last breath. Sadly, the justice system didn't, believe him even though 7 of the 9 witnesses recanted their statements. This is bone chilling. I am not for the death penalty. Killing one person will not bring your loved one back to life. America needs to really rethink the justice system and our value on human life. America is in a sensitive place politically, and racially. This could be the blow to our collective psyche and soul that causes an uprising. We as a people need to be proactive and more involved in politics or things like this will continue to happen. The way the government is this could easily be one of my brothers, my father, my uncles. Whether you believe or not, my brother IS your brother, my father YOUR father,etc. We are all connected. Seriously, I am hurt over this. We have to do something about these type of incidents. This is far from okay. I hope this serves as a wake up call to us all. I pray for both the MacPhail and Davis families. I pray for us all. Death benefits no one. This is NOT justice.
Rest In Peace TROY DAVIS.
