Wondering about Troy Davis?
As America continues to be transfixed by the case of Troy Davis, the inherent mis-carriage of justice and the fact that this very same “Justice” and “Legal” system is, with slight local flavour, the same un-fair justice system world over…. the answer lies not in the obvious.
Over and over, people feel anguish, shock, sadness, betrayal…. all arising from an in-ability to comprehend, even momentarily, HOW CAN THE SYSTEM BE SO CRUEL?
I thought I’d bring in a brief, tangential view to the same.
Georgia Diagnostic And Classification State Prison (Such a name eh?), ,is located in Jackson Georgia.
And Jackson Georgia is on the 33rd Parallel.
Here are it’s co-ordinates…
33 Degrees North. Fascinating, eh? Now, as some or many of you might have read in the Axis of Evil Doing, the 33rd Parallel is known as the Latitude of Death.
Every Nation/State/Nation-state that is blessed to lie on this fateful, imaginary line supports the Death Penalty.
The list is long and nefarious. And in the case of Troy Davis, it’s all about location, location, location. I’m sure if someone took a GPS monitor to the Execution Chamber itself, it probably lies RIGHT ON THE LINE.
It’s good to know and ponder such things. What are these factors, so denied in any main-stream thought, that drive people to in/sub-human behaviours?
Why are death rows around the world located at or as close to possible to this line? Why was the site of the first ever Atomic Explosion, Trinity, on the 33rd parallel?
Why was the 33rd parallel the line of control during the merciless 10 year plus air rape of Iraq?
If you study just this one oddity closely enough, I assure you, unless yuo are blinkered beyond belief, the numbers will stagger you.
How about this little fact: Abu Gharib Prison Iraq: Latitude N 33.29 (Identical to Georgia Death Row for men).
33rd Parallel Death Row States

No surprise to me.
So, Troy Davis is not fighting merely a hugely corrupt legal system. He is not fighting mere racial injustice. It is bigger. Much bigger.
And as we look along the line and what is happening on it (Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Syria, Israel, Libya, China, Japan, Algeria, Tunisia)……
Read that list again for good measure….
Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Syria, Israel, Libya, China, Japan, Algeria, Tunisia, United States…
Not much else to say really…..
Update: So he was put to death on this most potent of days, the Autumn Eqinox, The entry point to fall… literally, a descent into darkness. And with so much attention on the case, so much angst…..imagine his mind-state…. it seems like this was a ritual sacrifice on the 33rd.
And coming up, November 1-2, All Soul’s day, Dia de los Muertos, the day of the dead.
The overarching, archetypal scenes, being played out before our very eyes are immense and intense.
The bigger tragedy in this might be that we are, like the Devil card in the Tarot, loosely en-chained from with-out and deeply en-chained from with-in…. ponder that. Why do we not want to be free? Why? What is this love for the dog-collar of safety?
Perhaps this is the day the system cracked too.
