Troy Davis was denied clemency. Nazi USA, led by the twin parties of the death penalty, war and fascism, the Democrat-Republicans, continues to promote the death penalty. We have a black president and black attorney general, supporters of the death penalty, who could easily get a federal injunction on the basis of civil rights violations but have done nothing. Amnesty International is asking everyone to sign their latest petition to the Georgia District Attorney, who could stop the Sept 21, 2011, 7 p.m. execution of an innocent man, another lynching in the backward USA that is now among a minority of nations that still has the death penalty.
If you want anything to get better, you must vote socialist or Green, both anti-death penalty parties. In California, they are Peace & Freedom Party: http://www.peaceandfreedom.org/home/
and the Green Party at: http://www.cagreens.org/
