The Supreme Court has essentially said that innocence doesn't matter - Troy Davis can be executed despite the fact that case against him consisted entirely of inconsistent eyewitness testimony and that seven witnesses have recanted their testimony.

[Life And Death]



The Supreme Court has denied the appeal of Troy Davis, clearing the way for a new execution date to be set.

The Supreme Court announced today that they will not hear Troy Davis' case to determine whether it is constitutional to execute someone with a strong claim of innocence.  

The Supreme Court has essentially said that innocence doesn't matter - Troy Davis can be executed despite the fact that case against him consisted entirely of inconsistent eyewitness testimony and that seven witnesses have recanted their testimony.

If this is all the protection we can expect against executing the innocent, we must stop executions now.

Don't give up, don't lose hope.  We'll keep you informed about the Davis case and ways you can take action.  

Together we must all continue to work for justice!
