The mother of the police officer that Davis was convicted of killing told CNN’s Anderson Cooper that she is “absolutely devastated” that the execution has yet to happen.
“I’m absolutely devastated because I want it over with. … They’ve been through the courts four times there in Georgia. They’ve been to the Supreme Court three times,” Anneliese MacPhail said in an interview from her home, referring to previous delays. “This delay, again, is very upsetting and I think very unfair to us.”
“I’d like to close this book,” she said. “We feel (Davis is) guilty. The evidence and everything that we have seen – that I have seen , because I’ve been to all the trials – he is guilty, and I believe in that. And so does the rest of my family.”
I can’t fault this woman for wanting some kind of justice for her son, but this is so misplaced, so fucking wrong.
