The execution of Troy Davis and a history lesson

On September 21, 2011, Troy Anthony Davis died by lethal injection at 11:08 p.m. for the murder of a Savannah policeman despite widespread doubts about his guilt. If there is a silver lining to all this, it’s that the state’s steadfast refusal to budge on a case that ended up being far from certain has raised doubts in more people’s minds about the efficacy and fairness of the death penalty. The Chatham County DA and the state of Georgia did not do the death penalty any favors by pushing this to its bitter end. Another man is dead, and many of us feel diminished because of it.

The everchanging nature of Zimmerman’s tale

Update: New video evidence shows marks on the back of Zimmerman’s head, suggesting there was a scuffle … but no indication of a busted nose or blood on his clothes.

Unfortunately, the police didn’t find out how it went down, either. They took the shooter’s word for it. The problem: George Zimmerman’s claim of self-defense doesn’t add up, and that law that protected him from arrest–Florida’s “Stand Your Ground” rule–doesn’t either. Nor should it mean that there would be no investigation. Every “Stand Your Ground” defense should be presented to a grand jury. And the law itself should be…

Story about a homeless writer makes Forsyth County’s Polo Club webpage

This is as close as Brambleman gets to Forsyth County’s Polo Golf and Country Club. The webpage posted the Yahoo! News article about Brambleman, the Forsyth County saga. The house listings run from $200,000 to $800,000, but I’m sure there are some pricier ones up there, as well. Or, you could search the foreclosures section, things being tough all over, even in the Forsyth County and Cumming, Georgia real estate market. Here’s some more info about the book. Check back at www.brambleman.com tomo at rrow to see the latest review.
