Troy Davis Supporters Push to End Death Penalty

Amy Goodman Democracy Now
Troy Davis was convicted and executed for the killing of the off duty police officer, Mark MacPhail. The prosecution's case rested entirely on witness testimony but seven of the nine non-police witnesses have said they were coerced by police and since recanted their testimony. Nine witnesses also implicated another man in the murder, one of the remaining witnesses who has not recanted, Sylvester "Red" Coles as the shooter.
