"What do American decision makers do whenever We the People begin to unite and press for social and economic justice? They create a diversion. The Vietnam War diverted attention and momentum from the civil rights movement when African Americans, whites and others joined together at the Poor People's March and other justice initiatives. Today people are UNITING to protest wars without provocation, mass incarceration for prison profits, the assault on workers' rights, environmental injustice, and other problems caused by the Elite Integration of government and international corporations. This time, the plan is to polarize the races by executing Troy Davis for an unproved murder."

There are flash riots happening in the Northeast. BART police officers in San Francisco killed citizens and scrambled commuters' cellphones to prevent them filming and uploading potentially damning videos last month. Around 12,600 people in Michigan are scheduled to lose their welfare benefits in October. Unemployment is a major problem, but corporations and government have not stemmed the jobs flowing overseas and to prisons. Social Security benefits for senior citizens and disabled people will be adversely affected. Prisoners in California and Georgia staged nonviolent protests alleging cruelty, hunger, and slavery. Undocumented workers are targeted for harsh punishment. Senate Bill 968 is pending before Congress to place the Internet under the United States Department of Justice, which would enable Attorney General Holder to decide what can go or remain online. People are tense, angry, distrustful, disgusted, and many have PTSD and depression. Have you considered how many enemies we have according to officials? Iran, Iraq, and Afghanistan were/are all threats to us, and Libya was a threat to democracy. The Tea Party is a threat. Radical Christians are a threat. The liberal left is a threat. Conservatives in the GOP are threats. There are other perceived threats, including earthquakes, storms, etc. At a time when so many Americans are extremely tense, Instead of one life in the balance, there could be many lives and our way of life in the balance this time. I respectfully ask the Georgia Pardon and Parole Board for mercy for Troy Davis. Give us something to cheer about together - Let there be justice.
