The Final Solution for Troy Davis

Amnesty International and the NAACP on today’s denial of clemency for Troy Davis:

“In moments of immense sadness, moments that shake the foundation of our faith in the justice system and in mankind, there are often no words that can adequately express one’s grief and outrage,” said NAACP President and CEO Todd Jealous. “Despite overwhelming evidence pointing to his innocence, the execution will proceed and Troy Davis will live his last day on September 21.”

Larry Cox, executive director of Amnesty International AIUSA (AIUSA), said it was “unconscionable” that the board denied Davis relief. “Allowing a man to be sent to death under an enormous cloud of doubt about his guilt is an outrageous affront to justice,” he said.
