Execution Date Set for Troy Davis

A Chatham County Judge in Georgia has set an execution date of Sept. 21 for Troy Davis. Davis was sentenced to death in 1991, but since that time, the case against him has fallen apart. The evidence used against Davis at trial consisted entirely of witness testimony which contained inconsistencies even at the time. Since then, all but two of the state’s non-police witnesses from the trial have recanted or contradicted their testimony. Some of these witnesses have stated in sworn affidavits that they were pressured or coerced by police into testifying or signing statements against 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 is NOT inevitable. This date merely sets the clemency process in motion. Before Sept. 21, the Georgia State Board of Pardons and Paroles will rule on whether Davis’ sentence should be commuted. Amnesty International will call an International Day of Solidarity for Troy Davis when more information is available about the parole board’s plans.

    Police officer murderer Mumia Abu-Jamal continues to claim he is innocent and all of his appeals have ended in the confirmation of his conviction. He too shot a police officer in the face.

    Troy Davis stands convicted of shooting a police officer in the face too. His appeals have all run out and the last Judge stated that he is guilty of the murder of the police officer.

    Recantations and jury nullifications by African American witnesses are not uncommon when the perpetrator is African American. All of us, black and white must stand of Justice. Justice in this case needs to be carried out by carrying out the sentence as harsh as it may be to some of us.

      I agree that anyone who shoots a police officer must be held accountable for such a reprehensible act. The liklihood is that, even if Troy Davis is spared the death penalty, he is looking at life without parole, even though there is no physical eveidence connecting him to the crime. The last federal court judge who ruled against him even admitted the case was not “ironclad.” How can we possibly execute a man if there is even a shred of doubt about his guilt?
