From my email:

With today's Supreme Court decision, a man with a credible claim to innocence may soon be executed.
Only your action can save Troy Davis!


Dear Mark,

Today, the U.S. Supreme Court declined to hear Troy Anthony Davis' appeal. His fate is back in the hands of Georgia authorities who may seek a new execution date at any time.

The Supreme Court's decision to deny Troy Davis' petition means that no court of law will ever hold a hearing on the witnesses who have recanted their trial testimony in sworn affidavits.

Doubts about his guilt raised by these multiple witness recantations will never be resolved. An execution under such a cloud of doubt would undermine public confidence in the state's criminal justice system and would be a grave miscarriage of justice.

The state of Georgia can still do the responsible thing and prevent the execution of Troy Davis:

   * Write a letter to the editor calling on Georgia to stop the execution of Troy Davis!
   * Call on the Georgia Board of Pardons and Paroles to reconsider its previous decision and grant clemency to Troy Davis.
   * Urge your friends and family to go to amnestyusa.org/troydavis or text TROY to 90999 to add their voices to the over 200,000 that have already taken action on this case.

Most of you probably sent emails before. Please send another. Thanks!

Hi Mark  I am sick over this. The only reason this is happening is because Troy is black. American justice is not blind, and we are saddlled with a bunch of racist judges. I have signed the petitions, and Amnesty Int'ls letters and I have just done it again but it is hard to believe Troy has a chance of justice in the state of Georgia courts. But we will try, try, and try!  Evil or Very Mad
