Hi people. I don’t know if you’re all familiar with the case of Troy Davis who is on death row in Georgia.

Former President Jimmy Carter:

“This case illustrates the deep flaws in the application of the death penalty in this country. Executing Troy Davis without a real examination of potentially exonerating evidence risks taking the life of an innocent man and would be a grave miscarriage of justice. The citizens of Georgia should demand the highest standards of proof when our legal system condemns on our behalf a man or woman to die.”

You can read more about the case here, here (Amnesty International) and in this 2007 Washington Post article (here)

Please consider signing the petition to the Georgia Board of Pardons and Parole here

Troy’s mother Virginia died a few days ago, after 20 years campaigning for her son.

Thank you to Troy’s friend Sarah for letting me know about the petition.
