troy davisGuilt beyond a reasonable doubt. It’s the foundation of our justice system, built to serve and protect the wrongly accused.

The U.S. Supreme Court even granted Davis a hearing to prove his innocence. It was the first time it had done so for a death row inmate in at least 50 years but he couldn’t convince a judge to grant him a new trial.

Troy’s execution is scheduled for next week, and there is simply too much doubt in his case for us to allow this to happen.
