There was a several-hours-long delay while the Supreme Court reviewed the case, but a stay has not been issued.
Reasonable doubt is for the jury case, not for the execution.
I am told that the parole board can take public opinion into consideration, but I can’t verify that. If they can, I cannot get a grip on how Mr. Davis wasn’t granted clemency.
It just sucks. It sucks for the Davis family, it sucks for the MacPhail family, it just sucks.
Troy Davis died at 11:08 tonight.
