I am Troy Davis.
The state of Georgia (USA) is going to murder me on Wednesday, September 21, at 7:00 pm for a crime that I was unjustly convicted of.
The prosecution based their entire case on the testimony of nine eyewitnesses, SEVEN of whom have since recanted that testimony. Sylvester "Redd" Coles, one of the two remaining eyewitnesses to not recant, admitted to many that he was the shooter. The weapon used in the commission of the crime was never recovered and there is NO other physical evidence linking me to this crime.
Even if you do support the death penalty, you should oppose it in my case due to the immense doubt surrounding my supposed guilt. To murder me would be a great injustice. Not only to myself, my family, Officer Mark MacPhail, and the MacPhail family, but to the entire human race.
My death will only serve as an example of how unjust the United States "justice" system really is. No one will find peace or closure when my heart stops beating. Murdering me will not heal the wounds or fill the voids of the MacPhail family. Mark MacPhail can't and won't be brought back when I stop breathing.
I am Troy Davis and my life is worth saving.
he's talking about burning, but i'm so cold.
