Let’s talk Troy Davis. Quite a few friends on Facebook are trying to compare the case to the Casey Anthony verdict saying that “CA can walk the streets while TD is dying. unfair.”
These cases are so wildly not similar that I won’t even credit that with a response. Your statement is awarded no points. We are all dumber for having read it and may god have mercy on your soul.
The other post I have seen tonight is, “y is killing cops different from killing other people? What makes cops special?”
I’m sorry folks. I bit the bait on this one and responded.
While my response is filled with a few holes and I wrote it hastily, I think that will give the poster something to chew on for a few minutes anyway.
If the man is innocent the system is at blame: if the man is guilty the system is at blame.
Understanding my place in law school is harder when I think about these types of things. Some day, through no action of my own, I may be forced to prosecute a defendant to the death penalty. I may be able to defend a man and successfully keep him from being executed. That is a heavy topic to think about as I read about jurisdiction and minor torts like trespass to chattles.
