Another "Innocent" Person About to be Executed

There has been much ado in the media lately about another "innocent" person about to be executed. Unfortunately, most of the media coverage about the impending execution of cop-killer Troy Davis has spent precious little time discussing the facts of the case. This link contains a fairly complete rebuttal of the claims made by Davis' advocates, who seem to have little interest in getting at the truth of the case. Even more poignant is this link, which has information about the victim in this case — Officer Mark Allen MacPhail.

Davis was convicted and sentenced to death in 1991. We live in strange times when the claim is made that he hasn't had due process yet.

Update: A reader usefully suggested that I link to the case being made by his supporters. Here is the Amnesty International take on the case.
