Troy Anthony Davis – The Final Day

Troy Anthony Davis

Troy Anthony Davis, a potentially innocent man, is now set to be executed in Georgia TODAY. But there are still a few hours left, and your help could save Troy Davis’ life.

Chatham County District Attorney Larry Chisolm is the man who originally issued the death warrant against Troy Davis, and he is in a unique position to petition the judge to withdraw that death warrant against Troy.

Since Troy Davis’ conviction, the facts of the case have changed dramatically. The evidence in the Troy Davis case has always been circumstantial due to a lack of relevant physical evidence and no murder weapon. The conviction was based almost wholly on witness testimony, and seven of the nine witnesses have recanted their testimony or changed their stories.

In light of this knowledge, the evidence used to convict Troy Davis appears even weaker.

Sign the petition to District Attorney Larry Chisolm. Ask him to petition the judge to withdraw the death warrant, and support clemency for Troy Davis:

An innocent life hangs in the balance. Tell DA Chisolm that he has your support in preventing Troy Davis’ execution.

Thank you.

  1. According to Ann Coulter there were 34 eyewitnesses who testified. Some of them knew Troy Davis personally, and none of those people recanted. Do you think she’s lying? Because it can be checked and it would be a great way to discredit her if she’s lying.

    When you say “7 of the 9 eyewitnesses recanted” are you repeating someone else’s talking points or did you personally read the transcript?

  2. We fight overseas for the rights of other people how about protecting our citizens rights, right here in Georgia USA

  3. We fight for the rights of others in over seas. How about right here in America in Georgia USA

  4. First, everyone is potentially guilty or innocent. Recently, a high level person was found innocent and the west coast folks were livid, she should have been found guilty. If I could pardon Davis I would not because he is only potentially innocent, but I would change his sentence to life without any chance to be released. I do not have that power. If I were able to polly each witness and conduct my own investigation, I may think he should be released. The facts may no longer be available to be found. He has had his days before several judges and boards. The fact that the former PotUS is in favor of his release does move me a bit but not in the direction you would want. I could site several cases where the innocent were killed by people who should not even be in this country and also state that the countries from which such people come would not show me the same soft treatment. The case in Itlay is a good example, that case is a joke, so do not get arrested in that country of a crime.

  5. Of course I don’t know if Troy is guilty or innocent, But fact is that with this doubt, if he had been a caucasian guy, he would have been pardonned through lack of evidence.
    And that is already enough to make me stand up for Troy.

  6. This is blood lust – pure and simple. I find it quite interesting that they refused Troy Davis a last minute polygraph test. Why? That have they possibly got to lose???

    Oh….He might pass it….Can’t have that, can we? Never mind.
