DN! reports on the case of Georgia death row prisoner Troy Davis.
The State of Georgia is preparing to execute Troy Anthony Davis in one of the most high-profile executions in the United States in years. Davis is scheduled to be killed by lethal ejection at 7:00 p.m. EDT, one day after the Georgia Board of Pardons and Paroles rejected clemency.
Democracy Now! will air a special broadcast from outside the prison in Jackson, Georgia, from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m..
Davis was convicted of the 1989 killing of off-duty white police officer Mark MacPhail. Since then, seven of the nine witnesses have recanted their testimony, and there is no physical evidence tying Davis to the crime scene.
