One story saying he got a stay.

EDIT: state has delayed execution due to the Supreme Court debating on whether to grant a stay.

The execution of Troy Davis was delayed temporarily by the US supreme court on Wednesday night in a dramatic intervention just as he was due to be put to death by lethal injection.

The last-minute decision caused confusion outside the prison in Jackson, Georgia, where family, supporters and civil rights campaigners broke into celebration as they believed the court had granted Davis a stay of execution.

But it quickly emerged that the delay was only temporary, while the justices considered whether to issue a stay.

I am totally against the death penalty if it is gonna take 20 to carry out. Just let the SOB go. Maybe a 7-11 manager will kill him in an attempted hold up. I heard of an acquaintance at the Outer Banks. She was having an argument with her boyfriend. The girls dog bit the ass hole. He went to his car and returned with a gun to shoot the dog. The girl protested so he shot and killed her. I bet he is beating another girl friend in less than seven years.

I'd like to think of myself as a pretty liberal guy. But if you're on death row, chances are, you're guilty of something.

Most lawyers will tell you that juries are usually right.

When it comes to the death penalty, they should either be 100% correct, or it shouldn't be used.

Not officially but they just had another 50 state troops come to help crowd control. Decision is already made inside. CNN said decision should be made by 8:30pm so I expect it officially within 10-15min.
