I know of his story and have been following the case with a mix of heartbreak and outrage. I’m so sorry for what he, and his family are going through and I hope he can get the polygraph, or another delay before tonight. 🙁

Today is a sad day in our history.

I’m so sorry for those involved who did and didn’t know Troy.

My cousin organized a vigil for troy in the Capital building of NY. Praying for a miracle!

Heavy heart is a perfect way to describe the feeling…it’s just incredibly sad.

My husband lived in Savannah at the time of this murder (I’m too young to remember it, but he does), and is a former cop himself. Lots of news reports that there was no physical evidence found linking him to the murder, but there were- bloodied clothes of his found at his mother’s house. He ran to Atlanta to hide after the murder. Lots of news stories are not printing the full details of the crime. Here’s an article from the former DA who helped prosecute this case that sheds some light on “doubts” about the case. I’m not saying there’s not faults with the death penalty or our justice system in general, but I also don’t think Troy Davis is as innocent as many people would believe.

Such a sad story, regardless of his innocence or not I don’t think they have enough of a case to put him to death.

The first thing we did in my Amnesty International chapter in college was to organize a protest/petition signing for Troy. This seriously breaks my heart and boggles my mind. I just don’t understand how the justice system could be so unfair to him.

I keep hoping something will happen last minute. It gives me a pit in my stomach to know he is going to die in a few hours.

Keeping him and his family in my thoughts tonight…

I hope it occurs to the “powers that be” that it will only make the victim’s loved ones grieve all over again, with guilt added to it,  if it comes out after he’s executed that he was innocent.
