Stop the State murder of Troy Davis on September 21!

The following statement is from Kimberly Davis, the sister of Troy Davis, who was wrongfully convicted and put on deathrow in 1991 for the death of a cop. There is no physical evidence against Troy Davis, and seven of the witnesses have recanted their story — many of them saying the police coerced them into give false testimony. Kimberly has launched a campaign on Change.org to stop his execution, which is scheduled for September 21. We urge our readers to participate in the campaign through the petition, call-in and in general to stop the brother's execution.

My brother, Troy Davis, has been on Georgia's death row for 20 years despite strong evidence of his innocence. His execution date is now scheduled for Wed, Sept 21. He has a hearing in front of the Georgia Board of Pardons & Parole two days beforehand.We need to tell the Board strongly and clearly: There's too much doubt to execute Troy Davis!

The case against my brother Troy consisted entirely of witness testimony which contained inconsistencies even at the time of the trial. Since then, seven out of nine witnesses from the trial have recanted or contradicted their testimony.

Many of these witnesses have stated in sworn affidavits that they were pressured or coerced by police into testifying or signing statements against Troy Davis. Here is what one had to say:

“I got tired of them harassing me, and they made it clear that the only way they would leave me alone is if I told them what they wanted to hear. I told them that Troy told me he did it, but it wasn’t true."

We need to tell the Board strongly and clearly: There's too much doubt to execute Troy Davis!

Sign the petition here: http://www.change.org/petitions/7-of-9-witnesses-say-my-brother-is-innocent-stop-troy-davis-execution-on-sep-21

Also, call the Board of Pardons and Parole at 404-656-5651 and demand that they stay Troy Davis' execution!
