Troy Davis may be dying even as I write this

Seven of nine witnesses who implicated him recanted.
Several of those witnesses said they were pressured by the police to implicate Troy Davis.
Another man has confessed to the murder.
There is no physical evidence linking Troy Davis to the murder.
No murder weapon has been found.
A Republican former US Attorney General has said the penalty should be overturned.
So has a former President of the United States, Jimmy Carter.
And the Pope. And Bishop Desmond Tutu.

I am more disgusted than I can express in words.
The death penalty degrades and humiliates the United States in the eyes of most of the world.
