The execution of Troy Davis created a strong reaction across the Internet, as people all over the world were expressing their outrage. Filmmaker Michael Moore even took his outrage a step higher and suggested a movement of boycotting everything economically related to Georgia. Last night, he wrote on his blog, stating
I encourage everyone I know to never travel to Georgia, never buy anything made in Georgia, to never do business in Georgia. I will ask my publisher to pull my book from every Georgia bookstore and if they won’t do that I will donate every dime of every royalty my book makes in Georgia to help defeat the racists and killers who run that state. I ask all Americans with a conscience to shun anything and everything to do with the murderous state of Georgia.
Last night, Troy Davis was given Lethal Injection around 11 pm. Orginally he was scheduled to die around 7, but the Supreme Court delayed the execution to deliberate on granting a stay for Troy.
