Troy Davis was executed by the state of Georgia on Sept 21, 2011 after almost 20 years in prison.
He maintained his innocence up to his execution.
I followed the hearings and execution night on Ustream.
I was rivoted by the whole process. I believe Troy Davis was innocent.
It is unfortunate he could not get his case reviewed and retried.

Amnesty International and other groups such as National Association for the Advancement of Colored People took up Davis’s cause. Prominent politicians and leaders, including formerPresident Jimmy Carter, Rev. Al Sharpton, Pope Benedict XVI, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, former U.S. Congressman from Georgia and presidential candidate Bob Barr, and former FBI Director and judge William S. Sessions called upon the courts to grant Davis a new trial or evidentiary hearing. In July 2007, September 2008, and October 2008, execution dates were scheduled, but each execution was stayed shortly before it was to take place
BIG UPS TO AMNESTY INTERNATIONAL AND THE AMAZING STREET ARTISTS MENTALGASSI FOR THIS AMAZING TRIBUTE TO TROY DAVIS.
