Subject: Help save a life!
A man who is almost certainly innocent needs your help, and fast.
Recently, the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals rejected Troy Anthony Davis’s petition to have a hearing to prove his innocence. He received a 30 day stay so he could file a petition with the Supreme Court of the United States.
Troy Anthony Davis was convicted of the murder of off-duty Savannah Police Officer Mark MacPhail in 1991. No physical evidence links him to the crime, and he has steadfastly maintained his innocence. His conviction was based solely on the testimony of witnesses. There was no other evidence against him. Since his trial, seven people who had previously testified against Troy changed the story they had told in court.
Some witnesses say they were coerced by police. Others have even signed affidavits implicating one of the remaining two witnesses as the actual killer. But due to an increasingly restrictive appeals process, none of this new evidence has ever been heard in court.
