*UPDATE* Georgia’s State Board Of Pardons and Paroles has denied clemency to Troy Davis on Sept 20,2011 despite a lot of high-profile support for his claim and a last ditch plea effort on Sept 19th 2011 stressing that he was wrongly convicted of killing a police officer in 1989. Troy is scheduled to die on Sept. 21 2011 @ 7pm by lethal injection. Call DA Chapman (912) 652-7308 and ask that he withdraw the warrant for Troy’s death sentence!!!! CLICK HERE to read more.
As of this writing (09/19/2011), that’s how long Troy Davis has to live.
Convicted in 1989, a jury in a Savannah, Georgia courtroom said Troy Anthony Davis murdered an off-duty police officer in cold blood. Based on inconsistent statements from eyewitnesses, Davis received the death penalty.
Not unlike many people facing the death penalty, Davis has always maintained his innocence. But, this time there’s reason to believe him.
No gun was ever found and there is no DNA or blood evidence and nearly every prosecution witness has recanted their testimony in the 22 years since the trial.
