    Clemency denied for convicted killer

    ATLANTA, GA (WTOC) - The Georgia State Board of Pardons and Paroles has denied clemency for convicted killer Troy Anthony Davis.

    Today, the board held hearings to consider clemency for Davis (see Defense wraps in Troy Davis clemency hearing), but this afternoon, the state decided to go ahead with Davis' scheduled execution.

    Davis is scheduled to be executed by lethal injection on September 23. He was convicted in the 1989 killing of Savannah police officer Mark MacPhail.

    It's not the first clemency hearing for the family of convicted killer Troy Anthony Davis. Earlier today, his sister Martina Correia said new witnesses hammered home an old argument.

    "Over and over they were questioned many ways into trying to say that maybe they made a mistake and over and over all the witnesses said Troy Anthony Davis was not the shooter," she said in a news conference in Atlanta this afternoon. "They did not see Troy kill Officer MacPhail."

    Correia has spearheaded the effort to save her brother from execution (see Supporters rally for Troy Anthony Davis in Atlanta). Amnesty International and the NAACP joined the fight and were in court for the clemency hearing.

    "For justice to preserve in the United States and in the State of Georgia, this execution cannot go forward," said Jared Feuer with Amnesty International.

    "There is more than just doubt here, there is reasonable doubt," said Davis' attorney Jason Ewart.

    The board did not say why they denied clemency in a statement released this afternoon. The execution will go on as scheduled on September 23 at 7pm at the Georgia Diagnostic and Classification Prison in Jackson, Georgia.

    Amnesty International has filed for a stay of execution with the US Supreme Court.

    yet, he was still convicted. What say you of the physical evidence?

    Obviously not--he was convicted.

    This story reminds me of a movie..."Hang 'em High"...

    I know, I know...he was a fine boy...and his older brothers and sisters used to take his toys away from him...blah, blah, blah...

    He killed a police officer, now it's time to pay the piper...the only mistake made was making the taxpayers support this dirtbag for 19 years...NEXT.

    i was thinking the same thing. 19 years is
    wayyy to long. they should have executed
    this guy years ago. what a waste of
    taxpayers money.

    There are many cases of innocent men going to prison and to death row. Some of them have got out. Some haven't. Conviction doesn't mean squat.

    This is my fundamental problem with capital punishment.
    The preceding post may contain sarcasm; it's just better that way. However, it is still intended with construction and with the Love of my L-rd Y'shua.

    Yeah... convictions are 100% correct. No innocent people have ever been convicted.

    Convictions don't mean squat.
