This website has been documenting how the Southern Poverty Law Center [SPLC] romanticizes far-left violence. We have just learned that one of their board members is glorifying an unrepentant cop killer.
Troy Davis murdered Mark MacPhail in Savannah, Georgia in front of numerous eyewitnesses. Seven eyewitnesses testified against him in court. Two other people testified at the trial that Davis bragged to them about committing the murder.
Troy Davis was also involved in the shooting of another victim the day before he murdered Mark MacPhail.
He was involved in a mob attack against a homeless man named Larry Young. Officer Mark MacPhail was doing off duty security work at the time. He tried to intervene to stop the beating and Troy Davis murdered him.
The victim, Mark MacPhail, was the father of two and a former Army Ranger.
The FBI is promoting the left-wing Southern Poverty Law Center, even though the group’s leaders have written for the Communist Party, honored a convicted cop-killer, and praised a radical anti-American terrorist who planted bombs at the Pentagon, the U.S. Capitol, and police stations.…SPLC’s friendliness with Ayers is not the organization’s only association with cop-haters. SPLC board member James Rucker apparently has a soft spot for cop-killers. Rucker is founder and chairman of ColorofChange.org, which vows to honor the memory of convicted cop-killer Troy Davis who was executed by the state of Georgia for the murder of police officer Mark MacPhail in Savannah. In an email to members signed by Rucker, ColorofChange said it was “saddened to have to report that the Georgia Board of Pardons and Parole refused to grant clemency for Troy Davis…” Rucker’s ColorofChange said on its homepage, “Rest in peace, Troy. We honor your memory by continuing the work.”
