Troy Davis Wins a Reprieve for How Long?

Tonight, Amnesty Int'l called a death watch vigil across from the Convention Center, where the Black Congressional Caucus was meeting. A few minutes after 7pm, the crowd was huddled around the radio broadcasting Democracy Now, while others monitored their blackberries. A big cheer went up when it was announced that 5 Supreme Court justices said they wanted to review the case, and for now has delayed the execution. It is unclear how long this reprieve will last. Some came to the vigil from the White House, where 13 Howard students had been arrested during their protest to stop the execution.
