Troy Anthony Davis
An Innocent Man Facing Execution in Georgia
4th Death warrant signed for Troy Anthony Davis

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution
A Chatham County judge on Tuesday signed a death warrant for Troy Anthony Davis, who was convicted of killing a Savannah police officer in 1989.
The warrant sets the execution between Sept. 21 and Sept. 28. The state Department of Corrections will set the actual date. Davis has been on death row for 19 years.
Troy Davis is an African American on death row in Georgia. Davis was convicted in the 1989 killing of a police officer despite what Amnesty International calls "overwhelming doubts about his guilt." No physical forensic evidence was presented at Davis' trial, and 7 of the 9 non-police witnesses have recanted their testimony, with at least two saying they were pressured by police to finger Davis as the killer.
TAKE ACTION NOW to let the Georgia governor, pardons and parole board, legislature, and congressional delegation as well as President Obama, Attorney General Holder, U.N. Secretary-General Ban, Congressional leaders and members of the media know you demand No Execution of Troy Davis!
