The state of Georgia has set next Wednesday, September 21 as the execution date for Troy Davis. Davis denies committing the murder 20 years ago for which he was convicted. Most of the people who testified at the trial have now recanted their testimony. The leading witness who still says Davis was the killer is the person who nine people have charged was the actual shooter. As Amnesty International maintains, this is a case with "too much doubt."
USA Today marvels at the scale of the grassroots campaign to encourage the Georgia State Board of Pardons and Paroles to choose clemency. Over 600000 people across the globe have signed petitions.
In San Francisco, people concerned about the Davis case will be collecting signatures in Union Square today, Friday September 16. You too can sign a clemency petition; click this link.
