Fuck the system

Hello everyone! Im sure you guys have heard about this but it's important so pay attention! In 1989 Troy Davis was convicted of murdering a police officer in a Burger King parking lot and sentenced to the death penalty. He was scheduled to be executed last week but received a stay pending the supreme court's decision whether or not to reexamine his case (they will make their decision on Monday). Davis was convicted solely on the testimony of witnesses, many of whom have since admitted that they were coerced and or threatened by the Chatam county police department. One man even said that he didn't read the testimony he signed because he is illiterate. Please take the time to read more about the case and send an email or letter to the Georgia State Board of Pardons and Paroles here:
