Georgia Board of Pardons and Parole – The Only Entity That Could Have Stayed the Execution of Troy Davis

by Ben Hoffman


Well, it certainly is a diverse board. The question is: why are they allowing a man who’s trial was severely tainted to be executed?

  1. Just maybe the guy was guilty? Jeez, he’s had something like 22 years to prove it.

  2. Steve,

    Back in 2008 there was a story how this guy was days away from dieing. And then , I think it was about the third time he was up for execution. 3 years later and they can’t prove him innocent ?

    • Once again, you right-wingers don’t have the facts. He was denied a new trial even though there was a lot of evidence that the original trial was tainted and more evidence has surfaced that indicated his innocence. It’s hard to “prove” someone’s innocence without a trial.

  3. Mr. Hoffman,

    Which is a worse waste of a life ? Execution or life in prison? I admit that I had no knowledge of this case until recently . Now your side obviously believes this poor guy was not guilty. So why if this man was rotting in prison for two decades, are you only now publicizing it ? If he was guilty, he got his rightful fate. If he was really innocent, you had a moral duty to post his story constantly, so that he did not remain in prison .

    Me, I don’t trust the media to give me the facts to make a judgement either way. But you obviously believed he was innocent .
