INVESTIGATE THE INJUSTICE?
?

Troy Anthony Davis, who is on Georgia's death row, could soon face a 
fourth execution date. Yet no jury has ever heard the compelling new 
evidence that can prove his innocence. We call upon you, our elected 
officials, to investigate this case.?
?

Troy Davis has been on death row in Georgia for the past 17 years, 
convicted of killing a white police officer, Mark Allen MacPhail in 
1989. But no physical evidence linked him to the crime and no murder 
weapon was ever found. Troy was convicted on the basis of nine 
witnesses who testified against him at his trial. But now seven of 
these nine have come forward in sworn affidavits to recant their 
statements. Many say they felt pressured and coerced by the police to 
name Troy.?
?

Shamefully our court system has never allowed Troy to present this new 
evidence to a jury. Troy Davis has faced down three past execution 
dates, once coming within two hours of his execution. Any day now the 
state of Georgia could be issuing another execution date. We cannot 
stand by and see justice trampled.?
?

A man's life hangs in the balance. Civil rights?

 hang in the balance. 
Justice hangs in the balance.?
?

President Obama, Attorney General Eric Holder, District Attorney of 
Chatham County Larry Chisolm: You have the power to right this 
injustice. We, the signers below, urge you to do so.?
