The state of Georgia plans to execute Troy Davis on Sept. 21 for the 1989 murder of a white police officer despite what legal experts call "the skimpiest of evidence," including 7 of 9 prosecution witnessess recanting. Former FBI director William Sessions joins many others calling for Davis' execution to be halted due to "pervasive, persistent doubts" about the case. This week's GOP debate featuring "mobs who cheer for death," notes Amy Goodman, render the calls for clemency that much more vital. Video.
