I don't have a lot of time this morning to write about this and there is a lot of information available on the web, but let me say simply:


7 out of 9 witnesses against him recanted.

Tremendous evidence points to his innocence and makes clear he did not receive anything approximating a fair trial or justice.

This is the fate of all too many Black people in this country -- treated as suspects before being treated as human, stopped and frisked without any probably cause, daily harassed and brutalized by the police, warehoused by the millions in the most massive prison torture complex not only in the world but in history! Now, they are set to execute Troy Davis based on total bullshit, police-intimidated witness testimony (which has since been recanted!), and in the face of massive protest and opposition over years and nation-wide. THIS IS HORRIFIC, ILLEGITIMATE, AND MUST NOT PROCEED!
