No murder weapon was found, nor was any other physical evidence linking the defendant to the crime.
His verdict was guilty. The punishment, death. The State of Georgia repeatedly refused him a new trial although 9 sworn affidavits implicated another man as the murderer. After a great public hue and cry, he was heard at the last minute by the US Supreme Court.
Who went on to deny him a stay of execution.
R.I.P. Troy Davis (1968-2011)
May his memory fuel an end to the racism, classism, and thirst for vengeance that sacrificed him on the altar of judicial incompetence.
