    Alec Baldwin--the guy has fire and courage to say the truth about certain current events! He knows about the Gulf Wars, BP Gulf of Mexico, & GE/TEPCO Fukushima disasters, which kill many thousands, even millions in Japan! RIP, Mr. Davis and the many other innocents in prison for various reasons. And RIP, crime victims, who can never be fully vindicated by more death, can they? Michelle Malkin can stuff it--what a twerp!

    BALDWIN IS A JERK! He once again is opening his big mouth where it doesn't belong. He's lucky not to be charged for child abuse. Davis was a trouble-maker and got what he deserved.

    I support Alec Baldwin all the way! The Macphail family is more perpetrator than victim. How can they be satisfied with the execution of a man who was innocent? Whose guiltiness was doubtful when 7 out of 9 witnesses who were pressured to convict Davis retracted their testimony? How many black men must die for them to sleep at night? There is clear evidence against Amanda Knox, but so many white americans believe her innocence. In America, whites believe black means guilty.

    I too feel that the execution of Troy Davis should not have happened especially when there was still some questions that should have been looked into. However Alec Baldwin is dead wrong to go after the McPhail family and his comments were out of line in my opinion. This family too suffered a big loss and can hardly be blamed for wanting the death penalty against whoever murdered their loved one. However, they should have been willing to take time too to see if indeed the right man was found, but unfortunately most victims and their families are too emotional to think rationally or to be patient when they feel their loved one's murderer is found. They can't be blamed for it, and Alec's comments were unnecessary. I hope the Davis family does find the real murderer not only for themselves but for the MacPhail family as well. I can understand the frustration felt by many here, but its wrong to go after the victim or his family.

    You also say "Witnesses lied 20 years ago , if they are recanting their testimony. What is the guarantee they are not lying again ?"

    Yes, exactly. This is what is known in the legal system as REASONABLE DOUBT.

    You say that "One cannot kill a cop and get away with , or we will have no more cops "

    Well if Troy Davis was indeed innocent, then guess what that means? The person who ACTUALLY killed that cop absolutely DID get away with it. Dont you understand that every single time an innocent man goes to jail--or in this case is put to death--a guilty man goes free to stalk the streets with impunity?

    Witnesses lied 20 years ago , if they are recanting their testimony. What is the guarantee they are not lying again ? They could have been bought over by the pro-life brigade.

    Executions should be done within few weeks of the verdict or otherwise all sorts of power centers will try to influence it.

    We must institute a system where he criminal chooses his own punishment. If a victim is killed with kindness, so be it. If a victim is killed with a gun or an axe, so be it. We can say, "sorry you chose such a gruesome punishment" but then carry it out. It also must happen quickly, not 5, 10 or 20 years later. There must be a fast and resolute action taken. No long discussions. If there is a doubt, that should be considered. A very distinct and immediate cost for committing the violence might make some of our creeps think about their actions.

    I think that the death penalty is horrible if it could bring back the murdered then that would be different , we have far to long killed innocent people & as for the Gov of Ga why couldn't he have waited, why do it a few hours after the Supreme made that ruling & they weren't even that sure, why do we as human beings have to put people to death, if they are really guilty let them rot in jail,& from what I have seen these people look like animals after a while, you take away anyones freedom & they just die anyway

    Im just mad at our dumd azz court system. It is sad that Mr. Davis could have been telling truth all along. What gets me, when a white woman can get away with murdering her little girl and there were proof.
