Georgia Death Row Prisoner Troy Davis Denied Clemency In Face of Nationwide Protests

Witnesses recanted, no DNA, no proof, yet execution machine proceeds forward

From Atlanta IMC: The Georgia Board of Pardons has refused to grant Troy Davis clemency, condemning him to die this Wednesday. There is now effectively nothing standing in the way of his execution, prompting anger and frustration from his longtime advocates. Barring action by the president or widespread public disruption, Troy Davis will be killed tomorrow.

A rally has already been called for in Woodruff Park at 6pm this evening to demand a stop to the execution, and many organizations are coordinating last ditch efforts to address the situation.
