“To All” A message from Troy Anthony Davis

September 21, 2011Administrator

Troy was found guilty of murdering a police officer 19 years ago, based upon the testimony of 9 witnesses. Today, 7 of those 9 have recanted their testimony entirely, and there are enormous problems with the testimony of the remaining 2 witness accounts. There is NO OTHER EVIDENCE. The murder weapon was never found. There is no DNA to test. Troy was murdered by the State of Georgia by lethal injection on September 21, 2011.

Update: Troy Davis was executed on the evening of September 21st, 2011.

To All:

I want to thank all of you for your efforts and dedication to Human Rights and Human Kindness, in the past year I have experienced such emotion, joy, sadness and never ending faith. It is because of all of you that I am alive today, as I look at my sister Martina I am marveled by the love she has for me and of course I worry about her and her health, but as she tells me she is the eldest and she will not back down from this fight to save my life and prove to the world that I am innocent of this terrible crime.

As I look at my mail from across the globe, from places I have never ever dreamed I would know about and people speaking languages and expressing cultures and religions I could only hope to one day see first hand. I am humbled by the emotion that fills my heart with overwhelming, overflowing Joy. I can’t even explain the insurgence of emotion I feel when I try to express the strength I draw from you all, it compounds my faith and it shows me yet again that this is not a case about the death penalty, this is not a case about Troy Davis, this is a case about Justice and the Human Spirit to see Justice prevail.

I cannot answer all of your letters but I do read them all, I cannot see you all but I can imagine your faces, I cannot hear you speak but your letters take me to the far reaches of the world, I cannot touch you physically but I feel your warmth everyday I exist.

So Thank you and remember I am in a place where execution can only destroy your physical form but because of my faith in God, my family and all of you I have been spiritually free for some time and no matter what happens in the days, weeks to come, this Movement to end the death penalty, to seek true justice, to expose a system that fails to protect the innocent must be accelerated. There are so many more Troy Davis’. This fight to end the death penalty is not won or lost through me but through our strength to move forward and save every innocent person in captivity around the globe. We need to dismantle this Unjust system city by city, state by state and country by country.

I can’t wait to Stand with you, no matter if that is in physical or spiritual form, I will one day be announcing,

“I AM TROY DAVIS, and I AM FREE!”

Never Stop Fighting for Justice and We will Win!

    Let it never be said that lynching is a thing of the past. It is very much alive in brand new forms and it happens every day.

    We’ve been blogging about the Troy Anthony Davis case for four years.

    “…no matter what happens in the days, weeks to come, this Movement to end the death penalty, to seek true justice, to expose a system that fails to protect the innocent must be accelerated.”

    A very good start would be the revision or removal of the so-called Antiterrorism and Effective Death Penalty Act (AEDPA) of 1996. This makes it extremely difficult for someone convicted of homicide to get their case fairly reviewed even if the evidence against them is found to be false.

    God Bless you, Troy Davis! Millions of us are saddened and outraged over your execution. Only consolation is that I know you’re in Heaven now with our Lord Jesus! You died a martyr. God Bless you.

    U.S.government is 99.9% corrupt, kills innocent people, starts unwarranted wars, tortures in secret. God won’t allow this to continue. Great Tribulation is coming to America! Jesus’s blood was spilled when you were executed. May the wrath of God come down on those responsible for this injustice!

    Sad, Very Sad. Yes we need to END the Death Penalty. There are many Troys Languishing in various Prisons around the world. Most are there because the System has ALREADY condemned them, Most that are Executed are SCAPE GOATS, Because of the Incompetence and Lust and Greed of the Upholders of the System.

    After following this case for some time now I feel that Troy Davis did not receive a fair trial and therefore should not have been put to death until the courts looked deeper into the false allegations that were testified to in a court of law. I feel that the men or women that swore under oath that they were telling the truth and nothing but the truth should be considered for a long prison term. I don’t know if Troy Davis was a guilty man or not, none of us do if the truth be told, but none of us know if he was truly innocent either. I have been reading for hours now since his death was announced shortly after 11pm of the frustrations, the anger, the resentment and the hatred. We, in the US, live in the land of hope and freedom. All to often many of us take that granted. We don’t have a perfect system, but we do have the best system in the world, perfect or not. It frustrates me when folks want to yell racism just because it is a black man that was put to death. In a post I read the person said that the “System has ALREADY condemned them, most that are executed are scape goats, because of the incompetence and lust and greed of the upholders of the system” it wasn’t the system that pointed a finger at Troy Davis and named him as the man that pulled the trigger, it was 9 “eyewitnesses” and those are the people that condemned Troy Davis to death. People should not make this into a race thing because there were many men and women, black and white, red and brown, American, Asian, African, and Middle Eastern that condemned this execution. There have been all races that have been put to death at one time or another only to realize after they had been executed,that they were also innocent. My prayers go out to Troy Davis’ family weither he was guilty or not, and my prayers also go out to the family of Officer MacPhail because they also have lived a life of pain and the uncertainty of knowing if the real killer has been tried or if he is still at large. I pray that all involved can find closure and that all of the rest of us can not divide along racial lines but pull together to fix the flaws in our justice system, because we live in the greatest nation in the world and we have the best system in the world, even if it seems broken at times. In my opinion, the death penalty is still the greatest deterient against horrific crimes and if all states imposed the death penalty then there would be a lot less crime. If you look at the middle east and there system of law you will find they don’t have the high levels of crime like the US because over there they dont put up with the junk we do here in the US. I pray that Troy Davis found peace tonight and I pray for his family in the coming days. In closing I hope that Officer MacPhail’s family will continue to push for the truth, as was Troy Davis’ final words imploroing them to do. May God continue to bless the United States of America…

      The death penalty is the greatest deterrent to murder? I thought it was something more along the lines of a moral conscience.

      God has not blessed the United States of America. The things you see as blessings are not blessings or not of God.

      I know I’m a bit late to this, but whether the death penalty is a ‘deterrent against horrific crime’ is not a matter of ‘opinion’. In fact, US states without the death penalty have less violent crime than those who still kill their citizens; after abolishing the death penalty, Canada has seen a dramatic decline in murder rates.
      Even if the death penalty was not unjust, racist and abhorrent, it would still NOT be a deterrent.
