The Case for Abolishing the Death Penalty
Troy Anthony Davis was convicted of murdering a Georga police officer in 1991. Nearly two decades later, Davis remains on death row, even though the case against him has fallen apart. On March 28, 2011 the U.S. Supreme Court refused to hear the appeal by Mr. Davis. This case makes the case for abolishing the death penalty. The injustice of possible allowing an innocent man to be executed, under the guise of justice, is appalling. For more information, see Democracy Now and Wikipedia, Troy Davis case.
