Update:”Execution Delayed…Supreme Court To Review”


It will take 5 Supreme Court judges to grant a “stay” in the Troy Davis Case…Stay tuned let’s see what happens.

Despite last-minute interventions by the US Supreme court, a Georgia parole board denied 42-year-old Troy Davis’ petition for clemency.

Davis’ attorneys have pleaded their client’s case to the parole board for years and then for three hours yesterday. Their argument is “Davis would be sent to death under an “enormous cloud of doubt” about his guilt.

Davis was convicted in 1991 of shooting police officer Mark MacPhail to death in Savannah, Georgia in 1989. MacPhail, who was working a second job as a security guard, was shot to death as he went to the aid of a homeless man being attacked by Davis and Sylvester “Redd” Coles in a parking lot.

MacPhail was shot in the heart and face by a black man in a white shirt, according to witnesses. The officer died instantly before he could draw his weapon. Davis was wearing a white shirt that night., however, there is little and/or no evidence to support his guilty verdict.

Earlier that day, Davis was involved in the shooting of another man during a road rage incident. That victim survived his injuries.

On August 19, Coles, went to police and implicated Davis in MacPhail’s killing. That same evening, one of Davis’ sisters drove Davis to Atlanta in an attempt to evade arrest.

Late Monday, Davis’ sister, Martina Correia, said the family was “just praying for a good outcome.”

“He’s guilty,” MacPhail’s widow, Joan MacPhail-Harris, said. “We need to go ahead and execute him.”

Calls for Davis to be spared execution have been made by numerous dignitaries, including former President Jimmy Carter, Pope Benedict XVI, former FBI Director William Sessions, former Georgia Supreme Court Chief Justice Norman Fletcher and Larry Thompson, the former deputy U.S. attorney general. Davis’ advocates, including Amnesty International and the NAACP, have used social media to rally worldwide support. Last week, Davis’ supporters presented the parole board with the names of more than 663,000 people asking that Davis be granted clemency. Their efforts have been to no avail and fallen on deaf ears.

Davis is scheduled to be put to death by lethal injection on Wednesday (tomorrow) at 7 p.m. at the state prison in Jackson.

    1. yeah, never found a weapon and no physical evidence. convicting based solely on eye witnesses is never a solid thing. im not here to say he’s Innocent, but in cases like these, life in prison is warranted. watch after he die, the real killer comes forward, or they find some evidence

He was convicted off witness statements and the word of someone who was committing a crime with him at the time. The witnesses have recanted, the other guy didn’t get the death penalty which means he copped a plea so his “testimony” is automatically suspect or at least it should be, and there is no other evidence tying this man to that crime. If they kill him and he’s innocent, that’s just the blood of one more black man on the state of GA’s hands. I get that cops put their lives on the line, I understand that, but to convict somebody w/o evidence JUST because you want to make someone pay for the death of a cop isn’t right.

      after he has killed the whole family? please, or went in a bank and said to the robbers, let all them go in exchange for my life, NEVER, and NEVER will, they sit they happy trigger asses outside, and wait on somebody to come out, if they are here to protect, then lay your life down for mine.

      troy davis couldn’t afford an attorney therefore he was provided local prosecutors who couldn’t afford to research his case or his innocense. this is justice denied which is an injustice everywhere! Read everything about this case and STOP responding half assed!

        Angelhair,
        Whether you think its right or wrong if all these witnesses have recanted there is something to that. Point. Blank. Period. Witnesses don’t recant unless there is a reason to. Period. So either way it goes I do not believe this is being seen fairly. People are so quick to jump on bandwagons regardless to what may or may not be going on. People are still being released from death row, or being proven after the fact as being innocent. When there is so much doubt how is it ok to still put someone to death?

        Everyone is all for an eye for an eye..but it is God who exacts the final revenge and has the final say. Regardless.

    Sins that are crimes against the soul and God like adultery, fornication, homosexuality, false prophecy, idol worship are punishable by God….in the lake of fire!

  41. This is so sad! This man should not be put to death. And the family of the victim just want to see a black man be put to death.They don’t care about guilt or innocence. As someone else stated, the son of the victim was a infant when his father was killed, but he is certain that Davis is guilty and should be killed. The mother has gotten her 15 minutes as well. She has been on the news more than a little bit in the last week. I didn’t see her this much the last time the Supreme Court stayed his execution…and yes I was following the story then to. She claims she doesn’t want vengence in Davis’ death, just justice. How can there be justice when there is still doubt? She’s a lying cow. Im sorry. I dont care if she is positive about his guilt, her intentions are not pure and I can see through her. She wants blood. If Mr. Davis would have been a white man, I guarantee she and the rest of her family wouldn’t be rallying so hard for this man’s death.

    This is justice in America. Why not give him life without the possiblity of parole? Why cant the family find closure in that? A white Texas man, cleve foster, who raped and killed a woman was saved by the U.S. Supreme court not to long ago. Why is Troy Davis being killed and there is still some doubt? He will probably be killed this evening, and things will continue to be F-d up in the justice system. And people (especially blacks) who are all for him getting killed will stay on the band wagon until something like this unfairly happens to their family member. It will continue to happen-Injustices.

      You can open a whole can of worms with this statement. What about innocent people who are killed minding their own business, people walking their kids from the deli, etc. heard it all….

      Fact is, our justice system says, guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. Casey Anthony….most of us think she did it, but fact is, there was reasonable doubt. In this case….to take a line from casey anthony’s attorney, “reasonable doubt lives here”. I don’t know if he’s innocent or not…i rather say I don’t know…..

      We don’t have the death penalty here in nyc, but just in our paper yesterday was article about a man, doing life llikely for a murder he didn’t commit. There is ample evidence that shows that he was even in the car, all the witness who implicated him in the car said the prosecutor pressured them into sayin he was the shooter, one even said that in his original statement to police, he told them, the guy was even in the car, the officers didn’t file that away. would god let a innocent man sit in prison for crimes they didn’t do? Happens all the time.

      18. There is a proliferation of information about reasonable doubt in this case. Have you bothered to look? It’s nearly inescapable. For example:

        1) Seven of the nine “eyewitnesses” recanted their stories. One of the two who didn’t was the principle alternative suspect in the crime.

        2) No physical evidence was ever found (no, DNA, no murder weapon, etc.)

        So there’s no cause for an execution.
