Execution Alert: Troy Anthony Davis (for the murder of Mark McPhail)


Troy Anthony Davis

Clemency has been denied and so has a last-minute appeal. His lawyers asked for and were denied a polygraph for Troy (I assume it was to prove he is not lying) but polygraphs are not accepted as evidence, so I doubt it would have done any good anyway. *Update* Troy Davis was executed.

I do understand that this execution caused a lot of controversary. However, it appears that through all of this, the victim, MARK MCPHAIL, was forgotten. Even now (April 2012) there are Troy Davis supporters that are hounding the mother of Mark McPhail, the victim. That is unbelievable. Why on earth would any reasonable or rational person be so offensive to the mother of a murder victim. If you believe that Troy Davis is innocent or guilty, that is your right. However, human decency tells us that you don’t harass the mother of the victim. Personally, I would not even harass Troy’s family, as they are also victims in this. People, get real and learn compassion. And remember the real victim here, Mark McPhail.

Pervert Alley: Shawn Joseph McCormack videotaped himself raping an 11-month-old child


Shawn Joseph McCormack

I am b betting that this sick, demented man thought he got away with rping this innocent child. However, several law enforcement agencies worked together to make sure that did not happen. This child will have life-long damage, both emotionally and physically. This pervert needs to learn that children ARE NOT sexual beings. He took away this child’s innocence. I hope that he will never again be a free man.
