A Message From TROY DAVIS "To All"

As you all may know the story of Troy Davis by now...if not here it is in quick detail. Troy Davis was convicted of the murder of an off duty police officer. No physical evidence, the murder weapon, or DNA, is available to hold this case. The only evidence is 9 testimonies given against Davis. 7 of those testimonies were recanted. And the remaining 2 testimonies have amazing loop holes in the story. Troy Davis is sentenced to the Death Penalty and is sentenced to die by lethal injection TODAY, September 21, 2011.

Here is his letter, and what may be his last words to ALL HIS SUPPORTERS:

To All:

I want to thank all of you for your efforts and dedication to Human Rights and Human Kindness, in the past year I have experienced such emotion, joy, sadness and never ending faith. It is because of all of you that I am alive today, as I look at my sister Martina I am marveled by the love she has for me and of course I worry about her and her health, but as she tells me she is the eldest and she will not back down from this fight to save my life and prove to the world that I am innocent of this terrible crime.

As I look at my mail from across the globe, from places I have never ever dreamed I would know about and people speaking languages and expressing cultures and religions I could only hope to one day see first hand. I am humbled by the emotion that fills my heart with overwhelming, overflowing Joy. I can’t even explain the insurgence of emotion I feel when I try to express the strength I draw from you all, it compounds my faith and it shows me yet again that this is not a case about the death penalty, this is not a case about Troy Davis, this is a case about Justice and the Human Spirit to see Justice prevail.

I cannot answer all of your letters but I do read them all, I cannot see you all but I can imagine your faces, I cannot hear you speak but your letters take me to the far reaches of the world, I cannot touch you physically but I feel your warmth everyday I exist.

So Thank you and remember I am in a place where execution can only destroy your physical form but because of my faith in God, my family and all of you I have been spiritually free for some time and no matter what happens in the days, weeks to come, this Movement to end the death penalty, to seek true justice, to expose a system that fails to protect the innocent must be accelerated. There are so many more Troy Davis’. This fight to end the death penalty is not won or lost through me but through our strength to move forward and save every innocent person in captivity around the globe. We need to dismantle this Unjust system city by city, state by state and country by country.

I can’t wait to Stand with you, no matter if that is in physical or spiritual form, I will one day be announcing,


Never Stop Fighting for Justice and We will Win!

HS Coach Booked Twice in Less Than 72 Hours

Louis Spadaccini is, or WAS, a 37-year-old baseball coach at St. Neumann and Goretti High School, and is employed by the Court of Common Pleas. He was also arrested, for a second time in 3 days, at about 10 p.m. on Tuesday, September 20, 2011 after a second alleged victim came forward.

Police reported Spadaccini gave a 13-year-old boy alcohol and had sexual contact with him on three different occasions in July and August of 2011. One of the sexual assaults is said to have occurred at the Spadaccini’s house, and the other two assaults happened at the Holiday Inn on Packer Avenue in the Southwest region of Philadelphia.

The charges?

1. Involuntary deviant sexual intercourse
2. Unlawful contact with a minor
3. Endangering the welfare of a child
4. Simple assault
5. Reckless endangerment
6. Indecent assault AND
7. Furnishing alcohol to a minor

View more videos at:

The minor came forward after Spadaccini was arrested on Monday (09.19.2011) for allegedly escorting a 14-year-old Freshman baseball player to the same Holiday Inn and giving alcohol and mixing Xanax into the boy’s drink. Sick fuck.

In the case of the 14-year-old, Spadaccini was arrested on charges of child endangerment, corrupting the morals of a minor, simple assault, furnishing alcohol to a minor, interference with the custody of a child, luring a child, and distributing narcotics.

As of press time, there is no physical evidence that the 14-year-old was sexually assaulted.

This is a sick story, and if Spadaccini is found guilty of these charges, and evidence surfaces...I hope he gets exactly what he deserves.

Lady Gaga...As A Mermaid [Video]

Lady Gaga is a weirdo. Stone cold. But you have to love her, or hate her, for her outlandish acts and "shock art." Check her out in the video below. In a series of five fashion films directed by Inez and Vinoodh...this being the third installment, launched featuring Lady Gaga as a mermaid over “You and I."

Apparently in the full length video, the mermaid named "Yuyi," is actually pictured having sex with a scientist. Gaga has explained the metaphor of a mermaid trying to have sex–with it being ironically impossible.

Very weird, right? Or am I tripping?
