One day while on Facebook I started seeing status updates regarding Troy Davis. The things I read were horrifying and made me sad in "the human race." Some of the comments I read were.... "burn in hell, sleep tight Troy, 11:08 dead..."
Who are we to judge?
I wasn't in the court room when evidence was being heard.... were you? I wasn't there when officer McPhail was murdered.... were you? I didn't see who pulled the trigger.... did you?
I can not comprehend people taking pleasure or feeling vindicated by another human being losing their life. I realize opinions are like @&&holes and everybody's got one! I'm in no way taking away the fact that an officer was murdered. That officer McPhail's family has had to live with the pain of his death for years.
A friend of mine on Facebook said, "It's not about black and white it's about right and wrong." I realize race may have played a part in this.... but at no point in time should race ever be a factor. There should be absolutely no doubt when sentencing someone to death!
I've never had a family member murdered. I do not know what that feels like. I do know that I would not find peace in the death of another human.
After reading those comments on Facebook, I have little faith in the human race. Do the people making comments about Troy Davis being executed realize that life to them is just as invaluable to them as the person who murdered officer McPhail?
God is the one who will judge us and honestly we have no right.
