You need to know this. It's the end of the line for Troy Davis. Davis was denied clemency by a Georgia paroles board today in a last ditch effort to save himself from lethal injection scheduled for tomorrow. Davis was convicted of murdering a police officer in 1989 - but today - nearly all of the witnesses who implicated him have recanted their testimony and are now claiming someone else committed the murder.
Not only that - there has never been any hard evidence - be it a murder weapon or DNA - to tie Davis to the murder. Yet - he's still slated to die. Hundreds of thousands of people have signed petitions to save Davis's life - and former President Jimmy Carter - as well as the Pope have come forward to stop the execution. So far - nothing has worked. Davis's lawyer said about the decision today, "I am utterly shocked and disappointed at the failure of our justice system at all levels to correct a miscarriage of justice."
So with that - our nation could be just hours away now from putting an innocent man to death.
