How do we do it, how do we let innocent people be put to death?

Update: On Sept. 23rd, some decision was made for another stay. I believe that the case will be reviewed by the Supreme Court. Will follow the story at wilderside.

Lots of activists and liberals I know talk about injustice and racism. Here is our chance. What can we do? How can we stand by when an innocent man is put to death? (And, how can we not see that with the rules of the system distorted to this level of injustice, any one of us could be next?)

At the jump are words directly from the mouth of a man who our government is set to murder. What can we do?

Update: Reported at web-sites such as the BBC : President Jimmy Carter asks for clemency for Troy Davis. Also, on the list of Troy Davis supporters are: Pope Benedict XVI and South Africa Archbishop Desmond Tutu

Excerpt: Amnesty International Report on the Case of Troy Davis
Where is the Justice for me? A plea from Troy Davis

Where is the Justice for me?
peace
In 1989 I surrendered myself to the police for crimes I knew I was innocent of in an effort to seek justice through the court system in Savannah, Georgia USA. But like so many death penalty cases, that was not my fate and I have been denied justice. During my imprisonment I have lost more than my freedom, I lost my father and my family has suffered terribly, many times being treated as less than human and even as criminals. In the past I have had lawyers who refused my input, and would not represent me in the manner that I wanted to be represented. I have had witnesses against me threatened into making false statements to seal my death sentence and witnesses who wanted to tell the truth were vilified in court.

For the entire two years I was in jail awaiting trial I wore a handmade cross around my neck, it gave me peace and when a news reporter made a statement in the local news, “Cop-killer wears cross to court,” the cross was immediately taken as if I was unworthy to believe in God or him in me. The only time my family was allowed to enter the courtroom on my behalf was during the sentencing phase where my mother and sister had to beg for my life and the prosecutor simply said, “I was only fit for killing.” Where is the Justice for me, when the courts have refused to allow me relief when multiple witnesses have recanted their testimonies that they lied against me?

Because of the Anti-Terrorism Bill, the blatant racism and bias in the U.S. Court System, I remain on death row in spite of a compelling case of my innocence. Finally I have a private law firm trying to help save my life in the court system, but it is like no one wants to admit the system made another grave mistake. Am I to be made an example of to save face? Does anyone care about my family who has been victimized by this death sentence for over 16 years? Does anyone care that my family has the fate of knowing the time and manner by which I may be killed by the state of Georgia?

I truly understand a life has been lost and I have prayed for that family just as I pray for mine, but I am Innocent and all I ask for is a True Day in a Just Court. If I am so guilty why do the courts deny me that? The truth is that they have no real case; the truth is I am Innocent.

Where is the Justice for me?

By Troy A. Davis

Note: The Green Party of New York State has gone on record as wanting Troy Davis to be pardoned, and has sent letters to officials to ask that Troy Davis not be executed. The Green Party’s 4 pillars include: Non-violence/peace and social & economic justice.

Latest update from web-site on which contact points work:

A friend in California called me to say that “…in reference to telephone numbers, I discovered this morning that for the State of Georgia Board of Pardons and Paroles, the most accessible – i. e., a real person answered and spoke versus a series of recordings… Get a real person at 404-656-5712….”

“…in reference to facsimile numbers, 404-651-8502 works….” [KW: I JUST GOT A FAX CONFIRMATION!]

“…in reference to electronic messages. clemency_information@pap.state.ga .us
will most likely work….

IMPORTANT! Any links or phrases about a stay being granted are OLD NEWS! As of the afternoon of Tuesday, Sept. 23, the date for execution is still scheduled for TONIGHT, TUESDAY SEPTEMBER 23RD at 7pm!!!!!
