    I really have to get this assignment done that I have not finished yet for school, but I can't seem to stop watching. I wish that I had some way to get a text alert if there were any news one way or the other. I can't sit here like I used to and wait. I can't set up a google alert because the phone goes off every time there is a different article posted. This is making me a basket case and reminding me why I had to stop doing this.

    I am just going to turn it off for now, since my assignment is due at midnight, but I will be back when I finish up and will be hoping for good news, or at the very least no news.



    ETA: I forgot to add one of these:
    Thomas is silent, so it's hard to read him sometimes, but he quite often rules with Scalia, which makes me very nervous for Troys case.

    I'm hoping that the women are among the justices considering, I think they would be the best chance.

    It's ridiculous. This country is starting to feel like a police state

    I'm so glad you're all here. I can always count on it that when something that is painful to me is going on, some of my fellow sleuthers will be here, and I am grateful for that, grateful for you.

    Peaceful & orderly protest for #TroyDavis-police keep beefing up their team. Please no matter the outcome, don't justify their actions.

    This situation really scares me. One injustice done if he is executed and then i can see a scene like this easily getting violent for NO reason except that one cop (or more) is a racist there!
    I really hope things stay peaceful.....
    It's just MOO. I could be wrong. Wouldn't be the first time and it surely won't be the last!

    Scary...

    Frightening...Scalia has said there's nothing unconstitutional about executing an innocent person.

    Joined by Justice Clarence Thomas in dissent, however, Justice Antonin Scalia criticized his colleagues for thinking that mere innocence is grounds to overturn a conviction:

    This Court has never held that the Constitution forbids the execution of a convicted defendant who has had a full and fair trial but is later able to convince a habeas court that he is “actually” innocent. Quite to the contrary, we have repeatedly left that question unresolved, while expressing considerable doubt that any claim based on alleged “actual innocence” is constitutionally cognizable.
    QUOTE=Gardenlady;7145365]Thomas is silent, so it's hard to read him sometimes, but he quite often rules with Scalia, which makes me very nervous for Troys case.
