Stop the imminent execution of Troy Davis!

This petition had 229 supporters

Troy Davis is scheduled to be executed by the state of Georgia on September 23, even though his serious claims of innocence have never been heard in court.

Take action now to stop the execution!

The case has been tainted from the start, with a questionable police investigation, a lack of funding to ensure adequate defense, and an increasingly restrictive appeals process, which has thwarted attempts to present new evidence in the case.

No murder weapon was found
and no physical evidence linked Davis to the crime.

Troy Davis was convicted of murder solely on the basis of witness testimony, and seven of the nine non-police witnesses have since recanted or changed their testimony, several citing police coercion. Others have signed affidavits implicating one of the remaining two witnesses as the actual killer.

Please take action right away to stop this injustice.  And then forward this action to your friends.  We really need to get as many messages as we can to the Georgia Board of Pardons and Paroles to stop this travesty of justice.

As always, thanks for taking action.
