Troy Davis executed after 11th-hour appeal fails at the San Francisco Chronicle

Linked above is an article covering the execution of Troy Davis last night. I was holding out hope until the very end that they would decide to give him a new trial, but my wishes were not to come true.

What troubles me about this entire case, is that it is a clear sign to the entire world of the weaknesses in our "Justice" system. People were watching and waiting to learn Troy Davis's fate worldwide. In the end, the number of supporters he had--even worldwide--and the glaring lack of evidence connecting him to the crime he supposedly committed 22 years ago, didn't matter.

If we are going to execute people who have not really been proven guilty, then no one is safe. Who's next?

Another thing I found this morning though, is this article. Should be interesting to see what they do.
