king-ala:

if you dont know the story of Troy Davis heres brief description. 

Davis, 41, was convicted of the 1989 murder of Mark Allen MacPhail, an off-duty Savannah, Ga. police officer. MacPhail, who was running to the aid of a homeless man being pistol-whipped, was shot three times in a Burger King parking lot before he could draw his weapon.

One witness who testified at Monday’s parole board hearing said she once heard another man who was at the scene of the murder, Sylvester “Redd” Coles, say that he fired the fatal shots. Coles was the first person to implicate Davis to the police. Another of Monday’s witnesses was a juror from the original 1991 trial; she had voted to sentence Davis to death but now says she has doubts. Two other jurors signed affidavits asking the board to spare Davis’ life.

Former FBI director William Sessions called for Davis’ sentence to be commuted to life in prison, writing in an opinion column Thursday in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution that the case is “permeated in doubt.” In addition to the witness recantations and allegations of police pressure, Sessions pointed to a “lack of relevant physical evidence.”
