Troy Davis Update

In 1991 Troy Davis was convicted for murder of a Georgia police officer. Davis has insisted on his innoncence -- and most of the witnesses who originally testified against him have recanted their testimony-many stated they were initially coerced into testifying against. Yesterday, after a 15 year fight by his supporters, the Supreme Court has finally mandated a new hearing be held for Davis to allow new evidence to be submitted. This is great news for Davis and his supporters. But his fight isn't over. Be sure to visit Amnesty International for more information and ways you can stull be involved in Davis' fight for justice.
