I have written about Troy Davis here. Yesterday’s ruling by a Georgia judge is certainly a step in the wrong direction. An innocent man could be put to death for a crime he may have never committed. It seems harsh how the justice system works. When seven of the nine witnesses recant their original testimonies, that should be more than enough to cast some doubt about how the case was first handled and an inquiry into it should be opened.
What happens if Mr. Davis is found to be innocent after he is executed? You cannot bring him back to life. It seems as if the state of George is comfortable with gambling with his life. Rather than seeking justice, it seems the court is more concerned with placing blame on anyone. It certainly shows the flaws in the legal system either way but by giving Mr. Davis his day of justice, it can end a horrible 20 years for him!
