      Judge Mathis Weighs in on the execution of Troy Davis - YouTube


      Despite the millions of protestors and more than a reasonable amount of doubt in his case, the state of Georgia proceeded with his execution on September 21, 2011 at 11:00pm.

      The very next day Georgia Board of Pardons and Paroles made its decision less than three hours before Samuel David Crowe, 47, was to be executed, according to a spokeswoman for the state's prisons.

      Samuel Crowe killed store manager Joseph Pala during a robbery at the lumber company in Douglas County, west of Atlanta. Crowe, who had previously worked at the store, shot Pala three times with a pistol, beat him with a crowbar and a pot of paint. Crowe pleaded guilty to armed robbery and murder.

      Troy's murder was a lynching. The state held him by force, not law. They exceeded there jurisdiction when the ignored the call of millions of people to grant Mr. Davis clemency, at the very least. Am I lying?


      Peace be upon you

      It's actually been pretty common for executions to be protested. It's been that way in the West and I'm sure many other parts of the world for a long time. Back in the days when prisoners were tortured or executed in public, riots often broke out between the government supporters and those who saw the prisoner as a martyr.

      I talk a little more about that and the general purpose and development of the prison system over time on my blog >>> Black Minds Development: Discipline and Punish
      So if I should ever fall and get caught in a hustle
      Let em know that I died while I fought in a struggle
      From the hoodrats to rich kids lost in a bubble
      Spray paint it on the streets and in the subway tunnels
      Write it down and remember, that we never gave in
      The Mind of a Child is where the Revolution Begins
      So if the solution has never been to look in yourself,
      How is it that you expect to find it anywhere else?

      "...those who opposed Davis' execution should study the court transcripts the same as every other court has. Otherwise, the highest court in the land refused to admit that the justice system failed and killed an innocent man."


      A letter from Fleeta Drumgo, we writes,


      "Dear Brothers and Sisters:


      The Department of Corrections doesn't exist! All institutions under such titles are barbaric, oppressive, racist and murderous institutions. This system of government is designed to oppress, exploit and intimidate, all that are not classified as a white Anglo-Saxon-bourgeouis ruling clique. The hatred, violence and destruction imbedded in the system is the same fascist repression that is destroying the people ini general, Black people in particular. Knowing this fact is is not difficult to understand that America is a prison. As Brother Huey P. Newton stated, the only difference is that one is maximum and the other minimum security."


      One more excerpt is from Dr. Amos N. Wilson on The Falsification of Afrikan Consciousness. He writes:


      "Even if we forget every fact and detail of inflated Eurocentric history, its intimidatory impression stays with us even when the content is lost.
      That's the point of it, to leave the impression, because that impression will become a dynamic source of behavioral orientation toward the world."

      Thank you for the lesson and blessing.


      Peace be upon you
