"Davis lifted his head and looked at Mark and William MacPhail, the son and brother of the police officer Davis was convicted of killing in 1989. “I am sorry for your loss,” Davis said. “I did not personally kill your son, father, and brother. I am innocent.”
For those executing him, Davis said, "May God have mercy on your souls, may God bless your souls.” Davis then turned down an offer of a prayer. Fourteen minutes later he was dead."
--Troy Anthony Davis, 42, 9/22/2011
The worst is over now my dear felled warrior brother. You are in a better place. You have ascended this racist, elitist, and evil earth.
We love you. We miss you. We mourn you. We pray that you do not greet Mumia Abu-Jamal soon. Like you, he is also innocent...
I revere you and your dignity and grace. I embrace your eternal escape. Many more innocent men and women have been murdered unjustly. And, many more will be executed by amoral state sanctioned serial killers.
Nothing is as political as racism and poverty. You are a political prisoner who perished. But, your serene and regal spirit, as our rebel hero, is eternal.
Our laws are criminal. Our justice/just-us system is doomed by corruption that rots it's core. Our murderous and elitist penal system is hopelessly broken. And, we are all doomed and imprisoned by those who hate poor people.
It wounds my soul and breaks my heart that Casey Anthony is free and you were murdered. But, only your body has died Troy. Your soul and spirit are eternal. We feel you among us. You will always inspire us. There are still centuries of rebel joys inside our collective revolutionary tears.
So many people publicly spoke to save you brother. Those who fought for your life include the warden at the prison that caged you, the Pope, your wonderful warrior sister, and millions more fellow rebels. Tragic that “President” Barack Obama/Hobama was not one of them. Sinfully, Hobama did fight for Humberto Leal Garcia, Roman Polanski, and Henry Louis “Skip” Gates. You deserved his attention much more brother.
Hobama has still uttered no public words for you to date, nor for Sean Bell or Oscar Grant. Horridly, funding the Prison Industrial Complex that slew you is Hobama's only black agenda.
Millions globally do speak your name brother. We scream it with rage and respect. You were never alone. We are with you still. Millions of inmates are innocent within the belly of The Beast. That lucrative corporate beast grows bigger and more brutal each day.
We release the best of you Troy. We hold on to your timeless warrior spirit. We pray for your eternal soul. Your execution will not be remembered in vain. We promise.
Eternal Power and Everlasting Peace,
