94. I suppose it's easy...
to feel disgust for this woman because she smiled, but I don't even know how I would feel in her situation.

You never get over the loss of a child. Ever.

I guess she has the right to hate the person she believes took her son's life. You can't reason that away.

She said that she would feel "relief" and "peace".

I don't know. I think I would feel very empty inside.

And what if, by some bizarre chance, someone else comes forward to say that HE shot her son...that Troy Davis was actually innocent...

God, what a horror story that would be. Everyone involved in his execution. Everyone who thought he was guilty. Everyone who cheered when he died.

I can't even imagine what it would be like to know that I had cheered for the execution of an innocent man. I'm not saying this will happen, but if it did... I would probably have nightmares the rest of my life. :(
