Will the state of Georgia execute an innocent man? Thanks to draconian death penalty laws passed when Newt Gingrich was Speaker of the House, it looks like the answer to this question could be yes. Read about Troy Davis who is scheduled to be executed on Monday, despite new evidence that suggests he’s innocent. Here is yet another example of why the death penalty remains inconsistent with Christian values.
Please pray for Mr. Davis, for the family members of the police officer killed in 1989, and for all those who now have to weigh the new evidence in Davis’ favor versus a system that makes it difficult if not impossible for a man like him to make one final appeal.
