It was two years ago today that a monstrous miscarriage of justice was committed by the state of Georgia as its unrelenting pursuit to execute Troy Davis finally came to fruition.
Troy was executed even though there was no DNA evidence and no weapon that linked him to the murder that was committed. The majority of the witnesses in his case recanted their testimony against Troy because, as they explained, they were pressured and threatened by the police to give false testimony.
Troy Davis will never be forgotten.
The best way to honor him today is to fight to end the death penalty.
Troy Davis’ life and struggle against the death machine in Georgia and in the US will be vindicated one day when in our society it will no longer be possible to execute another human being.
I AM TROY DAVIS!!!!!!!!
