Too Much Doubt To Execute!!
Troy Davis was convicted of murdering a Georgia police officer in 1991. Nearly two decades later, Davis remains on death row — even though the case against him has fallen apart.
The case against him consisted entirely of witness testimony which contained inconsistencies even at the time of the trial. Since then, all but two of the state’s non-police witnesses from the trial have recanted or contradicted their testimony.
Many of these witnesses have stated in sworn affidavits that they were pressured or coerced by police into testifying or signing statements against Troy Davis.One of the two witnesses who has not recanted his testimony is Sylvester “Red” Coles — the principle alternative suspect, according to the defense, against whom there is new evidence implicating him as the gunman. Nine individuals have signed affidavits implicating Sylvester Coles.
An execution date for Troy Davis is scheduled for September 21, 2011.
Tomorrow. They’re going to kill him tomorrow.
This makes me feel so helpless. What can we even do? I mean, no really. What can I do?
The DA is basically the last hope. Sign petition above.
I am sitting in my law school in the Innocence Project office. Our faculty advisor has been in tears all day. I can’t even imagine what Troy’s family is going through.
Signed. It takes all of thirty seconds.
