SUPREME COURT REJECTS TROY DAVIS APPEAL
« on: October 16, 2008, 05:58:35 AM »
People in the state of georgia need to stand up for this,and let their voices be heard.

Decision clears way for execution after last-minute stay in September.

The U.S. Supreme Court Tuesday rejected the latest attempt by
Troy Davis, a black man convicted in Georgia of killing a white police
officer, to stop his execution.

On Sept. 23, the court halted Davis's execution two hours before
he was scheduled to die as it considered his request for a new trial.
Davis has maintained his innocence and several witnesses at his 1991 trial have since recanted.

But yesterday, the court refused to consider the
constitutionality of executing a person when there is new,
substantial evidence to show he was not guilty of the crime,
thus opening the way for the state to reschedule his execution
.


Civil Rights veteran, the Rev. Al Shaprton of the National Action
Network, says he is "deeply alarmed" at the Supreme Court's decision.

It is frightening and chilling that a man could be convicted of
a crime and sentenced to execution without testimony of witnesses,
no physical evidence or DNA evidence, and after seven of the nine witnesses recanted their testimony.


I visited Troy on Death Row before the last scheduled execution
and stood with his mother and sister on the day he was to be executed.

I will continue to support the family, and National Action Network will continue to stand with the lawyers as they re-argue this matter. I will also attempt to talk with the Governor of Georgia to intervene so that this injustice is not carried out."
