Troy Davis was convicted of shooting and murdering a police officer in Savannah, Georgia, despite glaring holes in the prosecutions arguments. He is now on death row, with an execution date as early as September 11th.
He is one of thousands who face execution for crimes they may not have committed.
Part One of Amnesty Internationals documentary of Davis’s case, “The Investigation” explains how he came to be on death row, as well as the numerous problems with the investigation. Please go to Amnesty Internationals website to view the full series. — Anna Lekas Miller
