What's up everyone? It's Brad H. once again. Just thought I would share another article that I wrote on Triond regarding the execution of Troy Davis. I wrote this a day after the execution took place. Please feel free to click the link and read it. I am still upset about how this case turned out, but there isn't anything that I can do about it. My thoughts and prayers are still with Troy Davis's family and supporters. Well just wanted to share that. Hope everyone has a great night, and I'll be back soon. Take care everyone Peace.

The way I see it, the only way a person is truly guilty is if there is beyond reasonable doubt that they are guilty. In my opinion with all the new information that came up regarding this case, it should have been looked into more. From what I understand Troy Davis was willing to take a polygraph test, and they wouldn't let him. The United States Supreme court denied Davis's final plea earlier tonight, and the execution was carried out around. Davis was pronounced dead at 11:08 P.M. Of course I didn't know Troy Davis personally, but I'm not for anyone who may be innocent spending the rest of their life in prison, or facing the death penalty. Today just proved again that the justice system in the United States is flawed. I saw CNN analyst Roland Martin mention that people shouldn't complain about having to serve on jury duty. I will admit that I'm not a fan of jury duty, but from here on I will not complain about serving in the future.
I want to say that my prayers and thoughts are with Troy Davis and his family. May his soul rest in peace. Also today Russell Brewer was executed here in Texas for the 1998 killing of James Byrd Jr. Some of you may know, but I'm from the city where all of this occurred in 1998. My thoughts and prayers are with the Byrd family as well. Well I'm ending this post for tonight. Everyone stay up, maintain, and keep fighting the good fight. Peace.

Tonight I want to ask something that has been on my mind recently. Why is it that people don't listen, and take us seriously at times? Do you ever find yourself becoming frustrated when you are speaking about something passionate to you, only to find out that others don't take you seriously. It's almost like they look at you as a joke, or like someone who doesn't know anything. I'm sure most of you who reads this has encountered people like this at sometime in your life. Now I don't claim to know everything by any means. However, I tend to think that when I speak about certain things or topics I know what I'm talking about. For one, I do my research on things that are passionate to me. I try to be well informed on things that I speak about with others. I give others respect when it comes to their thoughts and opinions, even though I don't receive that respect back at times. Basically I try to do unto others as I would like done to me. However, some people still tend to block out and ignore things on my mind.
I was told earlier today by a close family member that they couldn't take me seriously when it came to a certain topic we were discussing. It kinda upset me, but I kept my cool. That's one thing that I enjoy about this blogging thing. I'm able to get things off my mind regardless as to whether people choose to read or not. I don't intend to sound arrogant when I say this, but I'm pretty sure some of these people who don't listen to me or take me seriously, they will someday. It makes me think about something my grandmother has told me several times before. She says the Bible says; "take your enemy and make them your footstool". A lot of people treat mistreat and disrespect others, but these are the same people you may end up needing someday. I haven't seen it fail yet. That's definitely something to think about. Well that's my post for tonight. Hope anyone who reads enjoys, and feel free to leave thoughts or feedback. Well take care everyone, and I'll be back soon. I'm out!
