Activate Project T.D.A.T.A.

Currently developing a proposal to send to GA State offices concerning the details of last week's fiasco @ Jackson, GA.
Sooooo pissted off about it still.
Pissted to the point where I have developed Project T.D.A.T.A. :
Troy Davis Accountability & Transparency Act

Prototype logo & letterhead provided below.
Check it out, additional details regarding media packets coming soon.

To whom it may concern,

On September 21, 2011, citizens from across the globe arrived on location of the Georgia Diagnostic Prison. The message of the people was abundantly clear; stop the execution of prisoner Troy Davis.  This glaring declaration to oppose the death penalty was based on multiple objections that have been addressed.
Ranging from the monumental amount of reasonable doubt, the lack of DNA/physical evidence, the sacrilegious aspect of the State of Georgia committing premeditated murder, as well as the millions of dollars required to finance execution via lethal injection.
                  The State of Georgia conducted many tactics to monitor the several hundred that arrived who collectively expressed their betrayal of justice bestowed upon Troy.  At that point in time, we felt that if Troy falls, we all fall with him. In terms of humanity disregarded, in terms of class warfare; this is a gross representation of oppressed versus ruling class diplomacy.
An ever-present helicopter equipped with search-light, scores of S.W.A.T. and armed Patrolmen, as well as the creation of numerous blockades engineered for citizens to vocalize their humanistic protest.  All willfully exercising their constitutional right to peacefully create an assembly.  During the late evening hours, protesters began to collectively leave the prison perimeter by the bus load. Coincidentally, reoccurring waves of Georgia State Patrolmen began to arrive throughout the evening, often making quite the spectacle of themselves by flooding and occupying the perimeter with sirens and strobes.

In a state that is strapped for cash and enforcing numerous governmental cut-backs, conducting this internationally reviled “legal lynching” in the midst of active protest is a glaring example of how our democratic system is null and void. The entire world was able to witness the dramatics that unfolded on American soil and will forever be attached to the State of Georgia’s legacy, akin to a pulsing growth of embarrassment; a shameful blemish of cultural reason and morality.

As an eyewitness September 21, 2011, I was not alone in collectively demanding governmental transparency. We have activated T.D.A.T.A.: The Troy Davis Accountability & Transparency Act.

We want to know how much tax payer dollars we used and exploited to conduct the execution, financing the security detail, and the rate of overtime pay that was issued to the prison staff. This event was prolonged for 8+ man-hours of operation, crossing well beyond the midnight hour. We want the citizens of the world to understand the cost and resources involved to orchestrate a homicidal act and to follow the network on how it was funded.
In the words of Martin Luther King Jr.; “Freedom and transparency will never be volunteered by the oppressors, it must be demanded by the oppressed.”

We demand it!

The Budget for Troy Davis Execution on September 21, 2011:

-The Helicopter: owned by the media or by the state of Georgia? As well as hourly rates of operating helicopter (cost of fuel and helicopter pilot rate of pay).
-The total number Georgia State Patrolmen reported for duty @ Jackson, GA Georgia Diagnostic Prison.
-The total number of counties Georgia State Patrolmen was dispatched.
-The total number of S.W.A.T. members reported for duty @ Jackson, GA Georgia Diagnostic Prison.
-The total number of counties S.W.A.T. was dispatched.
-The total number of Riot Police reported for duty @ Jackson, GA Georgia Diagnostic Prison.
-The overtime rates that were paid to Georgia State Patrolmen, S.W.A.T. members, and Riot Police that reported for duty @ Jackson, GA Georgia Diagnostic Prison.
-The total number of Georgia State Patrol squad cars that were used while on duty @ Jackson, GA Georgia Diagnostic Prison.
-The total number of Georgia Diagnostic Prison personnel on duty to facilitate Troy Davis’ execution.
-The overtime rates that were paid to Georgia Diagnostic Prison personnel on duty to facilitate Troy Davis’ execution.
-The name and business address of Physician(s) that preformed the execution.
-The rate of payment given to the Physician(s) that preformed the execution.
-The name of the chemicals used during lethal injection.
-The costs of the chemicals used during lethal injection.
-The name/model number of “flood light” used on the outer perimeter of Georgia Diagnostic Prison.

This budget outline will be collected and forwarded to various media outlets in order for taxpayers to monitor how tax dollars are spent.  Regular correspondence will be maintained until the terms of budget transparency have been met. Contact info has been provided below.

Candle Sticks and Billy-Clubs: The Execution of Troy Davis

September 20, 2011.

The Board's decision was announced Tuesday morning that clemency was denied and the execution will be carried out as planned. There was a wave of betrayal felt onto those who were fortified with confidence and optimism towards a positive outcome for Troy. Obviously, such virtuous traits were unrecognizable within the legal system as towering levels of ambiguity continues to loom over this case. 

With one day before the execution, our groups, yet again, reassembled to stage rallies to project our collective betrayal of our legal system. Given the statistics of this barbaric form of punishment, there was a reoccurring theme of unity knowing the result of this day will be the last to stand in total opposition. 

At that point in time, we felt that if Troy falls, we all fall with him.

Rev. Marvin Morgan, 63, showed up, alone, outside the board offices in downtown Atlanta and chained himself to the flagpole as a visual for the world to witness.  "If the state of Georgia can intentionally kill a person in a case surrounded with this much doubt, then we're all subject to the same fate," he said. 

Noted, this is not the 1st protest Rev. Morgan has demonstrated. On Sept. 22, 2008, Morgan and Davis' friend, Steve Woodall, hand-delivered to the office of then Georgia Gov. Sonny Perdue a letter requesting that Davis' execution be prevented. Morgan wrote, "I, Marvin L. Morgan, do hereby request that you (the State of Georgia) take my life instead of that of Troy Davis, and allow Troy to be set free. I am available immediately to be taken into custody so that this request may be carried forward."
Morgan said they were told Perdue was unavailable to meet with them. "We waited until 5 o'clock and he still wasn't there. We refused to leave and were arrested for trespassing," Morgan said. 

Tuesday evening, we took the streets of Downtown Atlanta occupying multiple points throughout the city. 

The State Capital was the backdrop for many public speakers to address the crowd with vigilant prayers and grim reminders of both the MacPhail & Davis’ families have been affected by this case. Our group continued to reclaim Peachtree St. without question and without aid, for the streets will always belong to us. 


September 21, 2011.

Wednesday has been marked with death on the agenda; supporters began to flood the sleepy town of Jackson, GA (about an hour’s drive south of Atlanta) the location of the Georgia Diagnostic Prison.

Protests were staged in multiple locations; the lawn of inner perimeter of the prison was filled to capacity as the remainder of Davis supporters remained on the outer gates. There was a local church nearby as well that was the base of operations & parking for the buses and vans that arrived from all over the country.

The separation between the two perimeters was divided with a never-ending stream of Georgia State Patrolmen, Riot Guards, media crews by the dozen, and the always present helicopter hovering overhead.

There was an additional and surprisingly reclusive gathering of Pro-death penalty supporters on the premises that was in stark contrast to ours. 


The Georgia State Patrolmen persistently monitored the boundaries placed for Troy Davis Anti-Death Supporters. Our weapon of choice: the crowd continued to chant and drum in vocal protest against the durability of their body armor and face-shields. Groups of Patrolmen, usually with ratios 4-to-1, would tactfully restrain supporters who either stand too close to the artificial boundary or decide to cross it.

The crowds began to multiply on both sides of the highway leading up to 7’o clock. From that moment on, tension was also increasing, group prayer were plentiful as were the increasing level of dramatics unfolding before us. 

Supporters were constantly receiving Tweets, FaceBook messages, and media updates from the outside world.

A spark of jubilation was set amongst the crowd; supporters cried and cheered receiving word that Troy’s execution has been temporarily halted by the Supreme Court.
This was the game-changer we were looking for; personally, there was constant skepticism that did not provide solace for me. Of which, personal distrust at the system at large will become reaffirmed later that evening.

Between 7:30 and 10:30 PM, Davis supporters comprised of toddlers, teenagers, young parents and mature adults began to leave the scene by the bus-load. During that time, our massive crowd began to grow uncomfortably slimmer in number as the dark of night continued to black-out the paved highway. 

Our crowd began to brighten the night with candles set aflame; the Georgia State Patrolmen deployed a series of massive flood lights indicative of overtime during Friday night football.

Within the time period between 11:00 and 11:08, we were made aware via cell phone that Troy has been strapped in, allowing the chemicals to enter his body pronouncing him dead shortly after.

The crowd, struck with grief and discontent, formed the last prayer circle of dedication that was heard amongst tears and heartbreak.

The dramatics, yet again proved to become much more apparent after the 11 o’clock hour, as I made a full panoramic to see colossal border of Government opposition, standing without flaw and with “Hefty” bags filled to the brim of plastic riot-cuffs. 

A visual I will never forget; the reflective shine from the armed soldiers standing in unity a mere 40-yards in front of me with hostile intent. This was crude entertainment; this ultimate display of "Us vs. Them", "The State vs. The People". It was the fourth quarter between rivals with an eager, blood-crazed audience.

We refused. We refused to engage in barbaric confrontation, fighting like fiends would compromise our humanistic need to neutralize violence and suffering. The costs of preparing and arming these Georgia State Patrolmen would be an embarrassing amount. 

At this stage, it was a gesture ill-received and all for not. Financing an execution ranges from 2 – 3 million dollars each time. The Davis execution was going to be the freakin' Super Bowl of executions funded by a blank check at the taxpayers’ expense, precisely. 

In an economic climate were budgets are slashed and austerity efforts are common, the citizens have displayed their disgust with capital punishment, both in philosophy and in consideration of rampant reasonable doubt.

After midnight, all parties within the inner perimeter exited the Georgia Diagnostic Center, and the State Patrolmen began to carry out their last phase in this operation:  clearing out the citizens of the outer perimeter B.A.M. (By Any Means).

Like clockwork, the helicopter repositioned itself directly above our contingency and beamed the spotlight directly in our line of vision. At this point, we were comparable to escape convicts breaking out of the penitentiary. A percentage of Patrolmen crossed the highway and converged onto our side of the street. Due to the helicopter rotors spinning overhead, Patrolmen had to yell with an assertive tone:

“You have to leave now! You can either go back to the church or leave and go home! You can’t stay here!”

I so desperately wanted to grab my camera-phone to record these events, but I was miraculously apprehensive by not reaching in my pocket exciting a small army of well-armed Patrolmen (there were others nearby who were able to record this, if your out there, holler @ me please).   

To our surprise, we noticed a gentleman who was well-dressed in church wear, and approached the supporters alongside of the Patrolmen. Wow, what crazy timing, he made a subsequent announcement amongst ‘copter hover:

“You guys, please leave this area, if you stay here, they will arrest you. We just want to leave peacefully, we are going to meet with the Davis family at the church. Please go to the church.”

Again, a great number of us were stunned to see such a sudden/collective charge onto our side of the highway. Some of our comrades refused to leave as there was no harm in holding our designated ground, one of our femme fatales sat firmly on the ground with legs crossed. She was whisked away by four line-backer sized armed men as they marched into the darkness due to most likely “creating a disturbance”.

We reluctantly retreated; I made sure to stand firm for minutes at a time, just long enough so that I can look into the eyes of these government funded employees. To see exactly what type of character will dedicate themselves to uphold such counterproductive means; this lot of treachery creating unrest amongst its citizens. 


I looked at them, not even 2-meters in front me, every one of them attached with body armor and loaded weapons, stone in resolve, shifty in the eyes. Many with billy-clubs in one hand, plastic riot cuffs in another, all fueled with Red-Bull and artificial alpha male entitlement.  

I leave Jackson, Georgia with a question that has and will resonate with those of us who are under-classed dwelling within obvious racial biases:

The ultimate conclusion; executing Troy Davis was probably going to happen regardless of public outcry. 

Dramatics that have been staged for a great deal of time, dramatics that seem to be another reoccurring theme from governmental systems.  Akin to cinematic genius, great epidemics based on sociological events tend to have oddly placed crescendos of media pleasing theatrics.

What an effort! To funnel hundreds, maybe close to a thousand people in hick-town middle Georgia to stage the ultimate showdown between good and evil.  Does anyone watch basketball? Ok, let’s throw in a 7’o clock “buzzer-beater” and the crowd goes wild!
Putting “the game” into overtime, we’ll exhaust their star players and call in the cavalry. Only this time, the pain of losing in this event is severe and is afflicted on all parties. 

Dramatics, which affect the desperate, the undesirable are performances converging into multiple forms of entertainment.   
Check out the events that took place during Dallas’ & Atlanta’s response for providing housing assistance during heavy unemployment:

Dramatics, which affect the poor, the hopelessly fascist during America’s most horrific terroristic attack, now dripping with speculation and conspiracy. A grand design that ultimately created a jump-start in American patriotism and enrollment towards an elaborate game of corporate “Stragego”.

Two lives have been removed from this planet. A tragic timeline that has created lines that divide but would ultimately provide the way to acknowledge the social weight of violence as a whole. Death cannot be corrected, and both young men have transcended in form, they have transcended into legacy.

An Abomination Beyond Measure- Part 3

A link to "An Abomination Beyond Measure- Part 2" for details of the Troy Davis case



The Georgia Judicial System has forced our hand.



Despite aging and crumbling credibility of witness testimony, in addition to hundreds of thousands of signatures in bold opposition, the execution of Troy Davis has been rescheduled on September 21, 2011.





This level of callous, this obvious alienation from "American democracy" has generated shockwaves of public demand.

In this modern age of intellect and reason, one can only compare this unwavering performance of negligent execution as a renactment of Salem witch trial tactics.

An embarrassing and primitive craving for blood, to "burn" another human based on hearsay and malicious intention has, unfortunately, made its insidious return in 2011.



The sheer magnitude of this injustice reverberated across international borders, declaring September 16, 2011 as Global Day of Solidarity:

•Atlanta  •Berlin  •Boston  •Paris  •New York City  •Chicago  •Madrid  •London •New Orleans  •Washington, DC  •San Francisco, many cities, many vigils, many protests to tremble the ground.



Its energy was undeniable, to be included amongst the kinetics of a charging thousand was a emotional reminder of this social ultimatum.






These photos/videos were captured during the brilliantly organized Atlanta march that took place in the heart of downtown and concluded at Ebenezer Baptist Church.

The volume of our war-cry was loud and plentiful. 

Fueled with creativity, united through solidarity, we made sure to part the skies with the voice of the people.








Our efforts were re-channeled and re-focused in the form of continuous rallies throughout the weekend. As the Georgia Board deliberated on Troy's fate, a number of rallies and vigils were organized at the doorsteps of Georgia's Board of Pardons and Paroles Monday morning.

10 additional bins filled with signed petitions advocating clemency for Troy were also delivered to the before Parole Board, reaching a total number of nearly 1-million. 

The morning commuters were well aware of our presence surrounding the public designated space allotted to us, adjacent to the golden dome of the Georgia Capital building. 

With this monumental and tragic event culminating within our city, media coverage was very much on task to record this level of human calamity. Both families and communities are, unequivocally, left forever scarred awaiting legal conclusion.

After The Fog: “Manufactured Patriotism” & “9/11 Fatigue”

Patriotism can be deceptive.

Patriotism should be a volunteered sense of pride of country, instead of force-fed theatricality. 

Given the 10-year anniversary of this country’s worst assault on American soil, chaos from terrorist actions are practically daily routines for the populace of foreign countries. 
Akin to the inconveniences of interstate congestion that may spoil a carefully planned rendezvous with the fellas/ladies; bombs, famine, and impalement from shrapnel are inconveniences that may also put a damper toward planning an evening with friends as well.

The motive behind this post was not meant to discredit the unparalleled valor and resolve of 9/11 victims, not in the slightest. However, careful analyzation have unveiled very disturbing details of what most people have been describing this horrible event to be a well calculated self-inflicted wound.   
A wound that takes a great deal time and human involvement to heal and mend, allowing certain groups, in a menacing way, to actually generate profits beyond scope and comprehension.

Opportunistic human beings have been guilty of crimes causing great suffering toward humanity throughout history for the sake of dominion over land and wealth. We know of early American settlers offered blankets to Delaware Indians covered in small-pox in order to reduce their numbers and finalize their goal for territorial conquest.

During the 1930’s, Prescott Bush, George W. Bush’s grandfather, was an US senator and an operating partner of Brown Brothers Harriman Company. 

(The delicious segment between :35 and 2:02 sums up the whole interview and definitely displays “Bush-dialogue”)

That company was one of the largest private banks in the US and acquired a number of corporations. One being Union Banking Corporation, owned and funded with Dutch/German affiliations during our battle against Nazis of World War II.

There are countless other malicious occasions that have taken place traversing other continents as well, honestly, there simply isn’t enough bandwidth and storage to label them all.  

Skip ahead to the 1980’s, Donald Rumsfeld was an American diplomat (before he became our country’s Secretary of Defense, how well-timed…) and proudly shown here shaking hands with America’s soon-to-be most wanted man, Saddam Hussein. 

Of course, our collaborations and money trail with Iraq begins to quadruple within a decade’s time, which ultimately begins set the stage for international war. 

It’s the perfect plan; a necessary evil to rake in the kind of wealth that begins to leap off of the charts.  The transition between the 1990’s & 2000’s, prices of gas increased, human loss-of-life increased (a minor set-back…), profits rose particularly with oil producers/distributors:

(Halliburton, previously managed by our former Vice President Dick Chaney)

As well as military weapons and aero technology specialists Lockheed Martin:

(stock activity for both companies obtained from )

War is big business, Dick Chaney has been quoted saying that American occupation in Iraq has been a “remarkable success”. In order to keep the business running smoothly, the war needs human beings to “turn the cogs”. 
Thus reinforcing the fact that US will need to be gripped by fear and paranoia to make sure the war is just and necessary for the nation.

The master plan is set, with no end to America’s occupation within the Middle East in sight, our government will need to ensure stockholders in certain commodities for a constant stream of revenue. 

Fast forward to 9/11.

America witnesses a breach in security, delivering waves of tragedy that will create an unrivaled psychological impact on its citizens.

(thank you for the YouTube link)

Again, money-trails and diplomatic correspondents with Middle Eastern groups have been archived and presented to the public, for at least, what was permitted for us to see with governmental clearance.

Coincidentally, levels of American patriotism instantaneously skyrockets, devising even more alienation between our countries and surrender legislative freedoms to sniff out “suspicious behavior & individuals”.

Secondary means of generating profits were plentiful as well, modes of personal security, devices manufactured to monitor family members, all of which were cash-crops in light of our entitled “War on Terror”.

One instance in particular would evoke a level of odd precaution & preparedness in response to property damage adjacent to Ground Zero: The World Trade Building # 7:

The anniversary has past, after making additional observations while watching TV; I was drowning with multi-network coverage pertaining to the attacks that appeared all too choreographed.  

During the 9’o clock hour of 9/11/11, the primetime hour was ablaze with the following:

CBS: 9/11- 10 Years Later

AMC: We Were Soldiers

Discovery: Killing Bin Laden

TBS: Forrest Gump

History: 102 Minutes That Changed America (9/11 related)

USA: “The Space Between” (a fictional film depicting a flight attendant during 9/11)

OWN: Twins of the Twin Towers

National Geographic: George W. Bush: The 9/11 Interview (gag me with a spoon)

VH1: Concert For New York

CNN & Fox News both conducted hourly interviews of survivors.

Yahoo’s front page has been re-calibrated for the event as well....of course it was.

The cherry on top was the well-scheduled football game that aired, showcasing the Cowboys (mmmmkay…) vs. the New York Jets (mmmmmhmmmm…)

Flags were flowing in the air, fellowship and harmony was shared that was clearly visible on-screen; it was a magical time of Sunday Night American Football.

The score, if you’re wondering: the NY Jets came up from behind and barely slicked by in the last quarter with the winning score 27-24. 

Who would have guessed New York would be victorious on this, the 9/11 anniversary…

Hmmm, I wonder why the TV stations conveniently forgot to re-air coverage pertaining to the limb-less soldiers gripped with volatile PTSD and the “Pat Tillman Story” .

(Pat, a star pro-football athlete volunteers to enlist in the Army post 9/11 and receives an odd personal thank-you letter of enrollment from then Secretary of Defense….DONALD RUMSFELD

Instead of focusing on fraudulent accountability, the American people are left with a distractionary “festival of flags”.

Such pageantry & propaganda.

These force-fed tactics would deter anyone from the wicked paper-trail that led to economic mayhem and the destruction of families worldwide.

With our government budget maxed beyond belief, our citizens remain under-educated, unemployed, and unable to support their families. 

They have little choice but to reach for the closest and most obtainable object that’s planted in front of them; the grand and waving American Flag of Red (blood hemorrhaging from 9/11 victims), White (chalky fog of the deadly 9/11 dust) and Blue (at Ground Zero there’s a better view of the sky).

Sounds perfect, don’t you think? 

To build an army of hyper-fascist, over-fed, and sexually frustrated men and women (crossing fingers DADT expires this month) to shoot first and conquer later. 

All in order to spread American dominion and tyrannical methods of industry; ignoring the blatant possibilities of what climate change has done to the planet Earth we inhabit until the end of time.
