    If this article is true then it looks like the scumbag sympathizers mislead everyone to push their their anti-death penalty cause.
    Regardless of what your article says, it should be obvious to everyone that a retrial was required in light of new evidence.

    Why bother posating this? All the very committed and dedicated people that 'cared' so deeply were done with this case before the corn flakes got soggy the next day.

    There Is No Travesty of Justice in Georgia. Execute Troy Davis | RedState

    In fact, one of the chief nuggets of the case is that there was no physical evidence. Except that is crap. There is the matter of Troy Davis’s bloody clothes that you’ve probably never heard of.
    There was a .38 caliber gun. Both Troy Davis and the man Davis’s team claims in the real murderer, Sylvester Coles, had a .38 caliber gun.


    snip..


    But then there is Officer MacPhail himself and what the defense all too conveniently forgets to bring up. Officer MacPhail “testified” at Troy Davis’s murder trial. See, MacPhail, an Army Ranger and police officer was working a second job that night as a security guard. He chased Davis and Sylvester Coles, who were assaulting a homeless man over a beer.
    MacPhail reported in that he had run passed Sylvester Coles. MacPhail was shot from the front in the chest and face — not from behind where Coles was, but from the front where MacPhail himself located Troy Davis.


    In the laundry they found Troy Davis’s shorts from that night with evidence on the clothing directly tying him to Officer MacPhail’s murder — Officer MacPhail’s blood. (editorial note: it should be noted that Troy Davis’s shorts were not DNA tested. There were multiple people’s blood on his shorts)

    According to Darrell Collins, who is now recanting everything or claiming not to remember anything, Davis admitted to Collins that Davis had shot MacPhail in the chest and then went back to shoot MacPhail in the head at close range because MacPhail had seen his face — hence MacPhail’s blood on Davis’s shorts. Oh, and at the time Collins gave his statement way back in 1989 it was not public knowledge that Officer MacPhail had been shot in the chest and then at close range in the face.


    (remember as well that there were 34 witnesses, not the 9 as claimed. The defense claims seven witnesses changed their testimony. That’s actually not true. Only two materially changed their testimony and Davis’s attorneys refused to present those two in federal court in 2010 to be examined in the evidentiary hearing even though they sat outside the courtroom door.

    I said in another post...this case went through the entire process...appeal after appeal and was heard by the supreme court...if there were any wrong doings or lack of evidence it would have certainly become evident...the media is against the death penalty and purposely paints the picture they want you to see

    If it can be shown an innocent man was executed, it will further the movement to end this practice substantially. So yes, it still matters.

    Except that it hasnt been shown an innocent man was executed. What has been shown is a bunch of people cherry picked the 'evidence' they wanted to and made this person their poster child for their cause. They used him. He is dead and gone...and now they are gone...looking for the next poor unfortunate soul they can ride like a rented mule. The facts have always been ignored by the anti-death penalty crowd because frankly, they dont care about the facts or this particular case.

    I'll agree, the antiDP gang behaves badly at times. I don't agree with all their tactics. However, a case as marginal as this, examined after the execution with a judicial determination of whether Davis was at least entitled to a new trial is not a tactic that bothers me.

    You do realize, if Davis was innocent, there's a cop killer who's been free these past years and will remain so?

    But it wasn't shown that a innocent man was executed. The only thing this did was harm the scumbag sympathizer crowd because the next time the scumbag sympathizers make up claims that someone is innocent and claims that there was insufficient evidence it will fall on deaf ears. Because it appears that you people purposely mislead us.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    5 witnesses never wavered. The fact that Davis is the ONLY person that could have shot both people is also conveeniently ignored. The individual who later confessed, then recanted...while both he and Davis owned the same type of pistol, only Davis was at both sites. And while the blood evidence thrown out during the search couldnt be used during the trial it certainly speaks loud and clear in the aftermath. I dont see any 'evidence' to point to his innocence...just a bunch of people that have changed their story over the course of a few decades.

    Im against the death penalty myself but it has nothing to do with this case or any individuals rights.

    I'd be ecstatic if people "used" me by trying very hard to save my life while the people who aren't using me clamor for my death.

    For the record, there's something amazingly absurd about trying to paint a condemned man as being victimized by those who are attempting to save his life as part of an argument in favor of killing him.

    Whats amazingly absurd is the number of people that pretend to care about the individual and his poor tragic case. It might help if they actually KNEW about which dead mule they were hopping on...might even help if they were a little more selective about the mules they whupped.

    A few months ago we had people all up in arms about the tragic execution of a man...a man who had been in this country damn near his whole life, but for a technicality, he should have had his life spared. Nev er mind the fact that he was given a fair trial, effective counsel, and was in fact guilty of raping children and then bashing their heads in with rocks. In THIS case we have an individual who was convicted of shooting an officer (and also of shooting another individual earlier that night. People focused in the unreliable testimony of several people while ignoring the inconveeenient facts...5 people that testified as to his identity whose account of the incident never wavered. The fact that he was the only person that could have shot both individuals on that evening. They ignore the evidence that is there and still points to one person...Troy Davis. Oh...Im sure he enjoyed the international celebrity status he held. Doesnt make him any less guilty of shooting two people and killing one of them.
