Stop my brother Troy Davis' Execution on Sep. 21.

    1. Kim Davis
    2. Petition by

      Kim Davis

My brother, Troy Davis, has been on Georgia's death row for 20 years despite strong evidence of his innocence. His execution date is now scheduled for Wed, Sept 21. He has a hearing in front of the GA Board of Pardons & Parole tomorrow.We need to tell the Board and the District Attorney strongly and clearly: There's too much doubt to execute Troy Davis!

The case against my brother Troy consisted entirely of witness testimony which contained inconsistencies even at the time of the trial. Since then, seven out of nine witnesses from the trial have recanted or contradicted their testimony.

Many of these witnesses have stated in sworn affidavits that they were pressured or coerced by police into testifying or signing statements against Troy Davis. Here is what one had to say:

“I got tired of them harassing me, and they made it clear that the only way they would leave me alone is if I told them what they wanted to hear. I told them that Troy told me he did it, but it wasn’t true."

We need to tell the DA and Board strongly and clearly: There's too much doubt to execute Troy Davis!

      I still think about Troy Davis on a regular basis. I never met him, and I had never heard of him until this petition. I have a problem when we execute people with doubt. In fact, I really disagree with executions period. I am so sorry for the family that they had to endure this loss. I truly think that people like Troy need to be why we abolish the death penalty. You can't undo death, but you can at least let a person out who was wrongly convicted.

      This is why the death penalty should be abolished, did we ever find out the whole story? Maybe Troy had crucial evidence that could have lead them to someone else (if he was innocent). It is not justice to punish people with death. It is justice to have a fair trial and to make sure that we have somewhere in our hearts to forgive as well as to punish the right way.

      I'm sorry we couldn't save your brother, Miss Davis...I'd like to send my condolences to you and your family for a terrible loss. The lack of evidence should have freed him. Let's make sure that this doesn't happen to another man again!
