A 3:45 Summary of Troy Davis’ Upcoming Execution

Great rhymes in an infuriating case as Jasiri X looks at the plight of Troy Davis, who is scheduled to be executed in Georgia on Sept. 21:

Davis, who was convicted of murdering a white police officer mostly on the strength of a single witness, has what could be his final appeal before the Georgia parole board on Monday. I don’t mean to send you off to the weekend on a depressing note, but if you’ve got some free time and feel so moved, you can call the office of Larry Chisholm, the District Attorney who signed Davis’ death warrant, and ask him to request that it be withdrawn at 912-652-7308.
