Sign petetion to help stop the execution of Troy Davis... http://fb.me/10JfiVMFc
You have to read this. It is a huge case of injustice!
Even the Pope and Mikael Gorbachev called for Davis's release.
It is wrong wrong wrong. Please sign this and send a message: Justice means something!!
The information I saw online said Davis has had two trials? And a hearing last year, but he didn't take the stand nor did he call the witnesses to speak for him, even though some of them were in the courtroom.
And the article in your link makes an issue of the difference in race between Davis and the man who was killed.
There's just not enough information for the average person to call for his release.....unless the witnesses have given affidavits since 2010?:
This'll do for me -
"In hopes of exonerating Troy after 10 years of imprisonment, his lawyer submitted each piece of evidence at the hearing. And each piece of evidence was rejected by the judge. Despite noting that the case against Troy was not "ironclad," he nevertheless refused to grant a new trial."
The article on that site may say that, but the information on Wikipedia says Davis's defense neglected to call the most key witness, and that some of the others weren't found credible.
And especially that the witnesses' recantations weren't even officially submitted? Isn't that the info that can be found? So it seems to be mostly hearsay versus the findings of the courts...
John, the man has had two trials. He was found guilty both times? To overturn a conviction by trials of peers, the evidence must be concrete against his guilt, beyond a reasonable doubt, which is how he was found guilty.
Just knowing that there have been death row inmates who have been exonerated through DNA evidence recently, just makes it immoral to continue the practice.
I'm wondering if the NAACP would be so quick to step up if it were a white guy who allegedly murdered a black officer.
I smell feigned outrage here.
Nonetheless, if that many witnesses have recanted their testimonies, the case bears another look....
No feigned outrage, as you accuse.
I live here in America--born in 1960.
I've seen enought real outrage to make me sick.
gee--maybe since the Pope is white and Gorbachev is white--you might take this into consideration?
Troy's sister has been fighting for him since his incarceration. Google has a lot more info on this...it's a clear case of Injustice. And he will die for it, if it's not stopped.
I saw first hand how racism sent an innocent man to prison.
Felt first hand the hatred directed at those of us who spoke up about it...real hatred, like satanic sh*t.
It happens ALL the time.

Last time I checked there were not witnesses to this alleged murder, homicide, manslaughter accidental drowning whatever you want to call it.

Having survived the "Rites of Passage of an African-American Teenager in America" myself as a teenager and having raised four African-Americans teenagers in America I feel so blessed today that none of them ever encountered George Zimmerman. Nor having them ever being judged by the jurors...

Jeff Sessions DOJ’s new civil asset forfeiture policy is a gigantic step backwards on property rights. The original definition of terrorism is government by intimidation. A government that uses terror to control it's populace is terrorism. Civil forfeiture laws present law enforcement with...

I know I said I wasn't going to post about this again, but this juror's comments are troubling to me.From the Huffington Post:"I was the juror that was going to give them the hung jury. I fought to the end," she said. "That's where I felt confused, where if a person kills someone,...
