Clemency for Troy Davis
I'm against the death penalty. I never understood how a system that is so intrinsically flawed could be trusted with the ability to decide whether a person should live or die. Actually, I've never understood how humans, who are so intrinsically flawed could be trusted with the decision to decide whether a person should live or die. Vigilantes-- I get. Trying someone with a jury in a courtroom that can never be impartial-- not so much.
Anyways, Troy Davis is scheduled to be executed tonight. Please call 404.656.5712, the Georgia Board of Pardons, and simply say "I'm calling to ask for clemency for Troy Davis." It only takes like 15 seconds once you get through, like literally.
