A deceased myth for the anti-death penalty groupies. His appeals were almost total fabrications and distortions.

My dad graduated high school in Columbus Georgia with the police officer who Troy Davis killed in Savannah.
He followed the story all the way until the execution of Troy Davis. What I never could understand was that the Davis people wanted his sentence changed to life but he said he did not do it so why did he not push to be set free?
Its like he was saying I am innocent but you can keep me in prison the rest of my life, just don't execute me.
