Troy Davis is scheduled to be injected with lethal chemicals at 7PM ET tonight in Georgia. Davis is convicted of murdering a police officer. However, there is no physical evidence linking him to the murder. Instead he was convicted due to 9 eye witnesses, 7 of whom afterwards recanted their testimony and many claimed they were coerced into their testimony. To be quite frank, you can't even uphold Davis's conviction let alone execution if you truly believe in a fair justice system. Internationally this is playing horribly as London's The Independent is asking if this is the worst miscarriage of American justice ever, and Amnesty International as well as the European Union have gone on the record with their disapproval of this scheduled execution. As a country (or if you live in Georgia, as a state) is this the message we want to send to the world - that we can and will execute innocent people?
