I remember when this happened. It is WAY past time for this man to pay for his crimes.

Seven eyewitnesses have recanted their testimony? What do these seven people have to lose at this point? At the same time Sylvester Coles who hasn't recanted, has everything to lose given his shady circumstances.

Has Troy Davis' story ever changed?

Whose DNA and fingerprints were on the murder weapon?

I think that cases involving CP should be conducted in public with both sides present simultaneously. Decisions made by this board should also require a full explanation as well.

It is baffling that clemency can be granted to Samuel David Crowe, a cocaine addict who ADMITTED to murdering someone, yet deny clemency to Davis where SEVEN of TEN witnesses have recanted their testimonies. I don't need to pull any cards because they're all out on the table for the world to see.
