Georgia Parole Board Denies Clemency For Troy Davis | Despite the pleas of hundreds of thousands of people including Nobel laureates, the Vatican, former President Jimmy Carter, civil rights leader Rep. John Lewis (D-GA), and 50 other members of Congress, the Georgia State Board of Pardon & Paroles denied death row inmate Troy Davis clemency. Davis was sentenced to death for the 1989 murder of an off-duty policemen. However, Davis’ lawyers noted that there is “too much doubt” in the case, pointing to the fact that seven out of nine eye witnesses retracted their original testimony against him. Three jurors who voted to sentence Davis to death have also signed affidavits declaring they now doubt his guilt. He is scheduled to be executed by lethal injection tomorrow at 7 p.m. All of Davis’s legal appeals have been exhausted. His “last-ditch effort” before the parole board was his last chance to be spared.
