Troy Davis


The state of Georgia executed Troy Anthony Davis on September 21, 2011 by lethal injection at 10:53pm after the US supreme court denied his petition. Davis was pronounced DEAD at 11:08pm.


Troy Davis’ last words,

“ I’d like to address the MacPhail family. Let you know, despite the situation you are in, I’m not the one who personally killed your son, your father, your brother. I am innocent. The incident that happened that night is not my fault. I did not have a gun. All I can ask … is that you look deeper into this case so that you really can finally see the truth. I ask my family and friends to continue to fight this fight. For those about to take my life, God have mercy on your souls. And may God bless your souls. ”

Such a sad story. Thank you to all the supporters of Troy Davis. Our prayers go out to the MacPhail family. No justice. No peace.

Watch Judge Matchis thoughts on Troy Davis:

(AP)  ATLANTA — Georgia’s board of pardons rejected a last-ditch clemency bid from Troy Davis on Tuesday, one day before his scheduled execution, despite support from figures including an ex-president and a former FBI director for the claim that he was wrongly convicted of killing a police officer in 1989.

Davis is scheduled to die Wednesday at 7 p.m. EDT by injection for killing off-duty Savannah officer Mark MacPhail, who was shot dead while rushing to help a homeless man being attacked. It is the fourth time in four years that Davis’ murder execution has been scheduled by Georgia officials.


Checkout a few tweets from popular micro blogging site Twitter about #TroyDavis:

A Chatham County judge signed a death warrant for Troy Anthony Davis, who was convicted of killing a Savannah police officer in 1989.

The warrant sets the execution between Sept. 21 and Sept. 28. The state Department of Corrections will set the actual date. Davis has been on death row for 19 years.

Davis’ appeals are exhausted. He is expected to once again ask the Georgia Board of Pardons and Paroles to grant him clemency. The board has previously denied that request.  Davis continues to maintain his innocence, and several witnesses have recanted their testimonies. Some even say that one of the witnesses was, in fact the killer of the off duty police officer.

Supporters of Troy Davis include former US President Jimmy Carter, Reverend Al Sharpton, NAACP founder Ben Jealous, Bernice King (MLK’s daughter) and the staff of GWOP Magazine.  Davis is set to be put to death by lethal injection on Wednseday (September 21, 2011) by the state of Georgia.
