    Unfortunately I volunteered for the IP in my state for 6 years and I know all too well about all of this. Thankfully, all of the cases I worked hands on did not result in execution. Only one of them has not been released.

    It's just MOO. I could be wrong. Wouldn't be the first time and it surely won't be the last!

    Democracy Now! is reporting a 1 to 7 day reprieve--Not a stay!! But the Supreme Court is saying it could last any time from 1 to 7 days.

    ETA: Not sure how true this is, it is being reported on channel 11 in GA.

    Considering the information they have to go through, some of contradictory, I can see it taking up to 7 days.

    I certainly hope that this isn't some sort of trick to keep the peace and that the SCOTUS won't rule in the middle of the night and execute him while everyone sleeps. If I were in GA, I would stay in that field until it is over.

    Agree, I would do the same thing. I don't think those people are gonna leave.

    ETA: I'll stay up all night if I have to.

    Over 100 officers in riot gear...
    I wonder if there will be an outbreak of violence?
    40K strong watching democracy now. Things in this country need a radical change...

    NOW..that would be cruel and unusual punishment and NOT just for Troy but everyone who is in his corner...Surely there is a God living inside someone's soul that rises above the foam????

    I have to head out..MY heart and breathing needs to regroup..Pray things go to more judicial minds of evidence and fairness kicks in!!

    Salut..and Prayers

    Thank you all for being here.

    Semi o/t, and I abhor what he did, but I also am thinking of Lawrence Brewer and his family, as well as James Byrd and his family tonight. May they all know peace, and may something good come out of this killing.

    Keeping those in Atlanta in my thoughts too. May they have the strength to remain and keep watch for Troy Davis.

    In my opinion, this is another reason why LWOP is so much better. When there is a death sentence there are often multiple appeals and stays like this, where you think that this is it and it will be over and then there is a stay and it gets tons of attention because of the fact that the person's life is at stake.

    When the sentence is LWOP, there is much less attention and when there are appeals, it usually means nothing. Only when it is proven that the person is not guilty through something like DNA do the people even have a chance of their punishment not being carried out and if there were DNA, for the victims family to still want the person punished, it is something altogether different that I wouldn't be able to understand.

    This is exactly what my husband thinks is happening.
