Left and the Law: death penalty and Troy Davis

program date: 
Mon, 05/02/2011

Jan and Mike consider the case of Troy Davis, a man who is on death row for his contested involvement in the murder of an off-duty police officer 20 years ago. Mike talks about the way this case reveals a fetish of the letter of the law over the spirit of justice, while Jan draws a distinction between arguing against judicial sloppiness leading to the execution of innocents and arguing against the death penalty as such. Joe concludes with a brief remark about Law Day.

You can go to Colors of Change to learn more about the case and how to support Troy.
