Executaron a Troy Davis, ¿que farán se descobren que non era culpable?

Estados Unidos, ese exemplo de democracia e direitos civís… Barack Obama, ese presidente tan prometedor (yes, we can) e tan pouco cumpridor… Hai uns días executaron a Troy Davis, culpable ou inocente, quizá non o saibamos nunca, porque é difícil imaxinar un xuízo que implique condena a morte con menos probas. Non hai evidencia física ningunha. Non apareceu (máis ben non buscaron) a arma homicida. Case todas as testemuñas de cargo denunciaron máis tarde presións da policía para manipular as súas declaracións e fabricar así un culpable. Das dúas (igual son tres, non investiguei o caso abondo) testemuñas de cargo que non denunciaron manipulación, unha é o outro sospeitoso…

Este vídeo fíxose para a campaña de Amnistía Internacional, e espero que a loita continúe, polo menos para evitar que condenen a inocentes.

About NCADP:

Since its inception in 1976, NCADP has been the only fully staffed national organization exclusively devoted to abolishing capital punishment. NCADP provides information, advocates for public policy, and mobilizes and supports individuals and institutions that share our unconditional rejection of capital punishment.

Our commitment to abolition of the death penalty is rooted in several critical concerns.

First and foremost, the death penalty devalues all human life – eliminating the possibility for transformation of spirit that is intrinsic to humanity.

Secondly, the death penalty is fallible and irrevocable – over one hundred people have been released from death row on grounds of innocence in this “modern era” of capital punishment.

Thirdly, the death penalty continues to be tainted with race and class bias. It is overwhelming a punishment reserved for the poor (95% of the over 3700 people under death sentence could not afford a private attorney) and for racial minorities (55% are people of color).

Finally, the death penalty is a violation of our most fundamental human rights – indeed, the United States is the only western democracy that still uses the death penalty as a form of punishment.
