EU upset at Georgia…and the world continues to spin

They are all pissy about convicted murderer Troy Davis being sentenced to death for killing a police officer.

The European parliament is strongly protesting plans to execute a man in the United States who has been sentenced to death for killing a police officer.

EU parliament head Hans-Gert Poettering says all executions are violations of human rights. He says the condemned American symbolizes the fate of all death row inmates, and vows the EU legislature “will fight against the death penalty under any circumstances everywhere in the world.”

Too bad Hans-Gert Poettering doesn’t think killing police officer Mark Allen MacPhail is a violation of MacPhail’s human rights.

    HELP! I SAY HELLLPPPP!!!! The Eurpean Parliament is mad at us. Hide the women and children! Man the poop deck! Brace yourselves! Oh, the agony! The travesty of it all! Let all the cop killers loose, just please, PLEASE for the love of God don’t let them unleash the FRENCH HORDES! My God, someone, what if they send Jerry Lewis here as an ambassador for goodwill?!? What if they bombard us with the music of David Hasselhoff? We should all be in crisis mode. For the love of all that is HOLY, someone please help us!

    Bush and company are un-available for comment. They’ve got their hands full with human rights over in Eastern Europe. So I’m predicting a quagmire between the Eu and the Georgia Legislature.

    So…the EU says they will

    “will fight against the death penalty under any circumstances everywhere in the world.”

    But…will they fight to the death? Nope, that is America’s job. But they are happy to hold our coat for us.

    AJC’s PI is reporting that the Georgia General Assembly’s email servers are getting bombed by emails calling on the Representatives and Senators to get involved and stop the execution. 4000 in 24 hours.

    As Spencer Lawton said, this is little to do with Troy Davis and Mark Allen MacPhail and more about the opposition to capital punishment.

    Is that a bad thing?

    The European Parliament doesn’t represent Europe any more than Bushco represents America. Total false flag confrontation. I’m crying BS on the whole thing. I say execute the son of a b-tch!!

    is this case it probably is not great-i am generally ambivalent abou the death penalty (i suppose my pro life catholic upbringing does make me a bit uncomforable w/ state sanctioned killing, and i have “changed my death penalty views more than once in my lifetime)-i have not really said much about this case but my dad is a cop and i remember him working exactly the kind of security gigs officer macphail was working the night he was murdered when i was a kid to help makes ends meet. i also grew up in sav’h and davis is only a couple of years older than me so our high school careers overlapped a bit–if the “amnesty” types were working to have his sentence commuted that would be one thing–but they are not–they claim he is innocent and should be set free–they are overeaching and probably turning off a few folks who might otherwise be amiable to a life sentence in lieu of death…

    Actually I don’t know anything about this case including the race of the individual on death row. But have always been opposed to torture. Methinks this is tied to Bush/torture/detention facilities and globalism too, in some convoluted way.

    If the EU gets their panties in such a huge wad over plans to execute this scumbag who killed an officer in cold blood wait till they hear about how many innocent unborn children we execute every year. You want to talk outrage? We’ll be lucky if they don’t declare war.
