Desmond Tutu and others have never supported the death penalty...so why now. Mentioning their names has no bearing on the dude's guilt or innocence.

Should Troy Davis be released to society?

Everyone from Joe B. Public and Jimmy Carter to Pope Benedict XVI are pleading to the state for clemency.

If so many are recanting testimony, then they should take another look at it.

Eyewitness testimony is not that reliable to begin with.

Did Troy Davis shoot the kid earlier in the evening?

Pretty sure evidence shows he did...and the dude they're trying to blame for killing MacPhail wasn't with them at the time of the first shooting. Putting the gun in Davis' possession.

Either way....in the old days...all parties that assaulted officer MacPhail that led to his death by the shooting would be under the same penalty if he or she pulled the trigger or not.

Should a supposedly advanced society still put people to death?

all you need to know:

http://savannahnow.com/troydavis

synopsis: August 19, 1989. Davis gets into an argument with a homeless guy over beer. They fight. Off duty cop who is working as a security guard at the bus station, the one who ends up dying, runs over to break it up and gets shot four times, allegedly by Davis, before he can draw his gun.

Another shady character implicates Davis to the cops. Eyewitnesses say Davis shot him, some say he had a smile on his face when he did it. Some of those eyewitnesses recant all or parts of their testimony later.

Even the guy who got shot earlier that day says it wasn't Davis who shot him.

Too much doubt in this case. I don't support the death penalty at all, but there is too much doubt in this case for anyone to agree with it, imo.

If someone recants testimony...why should they be trusted the second time.

Are they willing to be charged with perjury?
