Help Troy Davis!! Spread theWord!

Innocent Until Proven Guilty?

Troy Davis is an African American man that was convicted 22 years ago of killing an off-duty police officer. He will be executed TODAY because of a failed bid for clemency on Sept. 19th 2011. The Georgia State Board of Pardons and Paroles ruled against Davis for the shooting of Mark McPhail, who was white. The case previously received high profile supporters like former U.S. president Jimmy Carter and even Pope Benedict XVI. The case is controversial because there was no physical evidence tying Davis to crime, and witnesses at his trial recanted their story. Race is definitely being looked at as a factor in the decision of that the board made. To try and stop Davis’ execution call judge Penny Freesemann at 912-652-7252 or district attorney Larry Chisolm at 912-652-7308
