Georgia executes Troy Davis after his last pleas fail

Georgia executes Troy Davis after his last pleas fail
Troy Davis was put to death by lethal injection late Wednesday for the 1989 murder of an off-duty police officer, maintaining his innocence until the end after convincing thousands of it, but not the justice system.

His execution, which began at 10:53 p.m., came after a three-hour hold while the Supreme Court considered a late request for a stay. In the end the court refused to stop the execution, despite calls for clemency from former President Jimmy Carter, Pope Benedict XVI and others.

Davis' attorneys say seven of nine key witnesses against him recanted all or parts of their testimony, but state and federal judges repeatedly ruled against granting him a new trial.

Media witnesses said that on his death bed, Davis told the family of the slain officer, Mark MacPhail, that he was very sorry for their loss but that he wasn't responsible for his death.

"It's not my fault; I did not have a gun," he said while strapped to a gurney, according to witness Rhonda Cook of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. "I did not personally kill your son, father, brother," he said, Cook reported.

ART OVER VIEW


Labor's day mark the end of summer. Picnic, potluck, last swing at the pool before it closed. The nostalgia of seeing those lazy days of summer fading away. The days of high summer have passed. The high school baseball tournament is now over. ...And then its back to school. sigh Withering flower bed, the growing season ends come Labor Day. Time to start getting ready for traditional autumn decorations such as pumpkins, hay bales and corn stalks. The sky is blue, with smears of cloud near the horizon. ( it haven't take its usual grayish winter color yet) A black butterfly glides gracefully across the road and there is a fair breeze at the top of the hill. There’s sadness at the passing of summer. But some summer still lingers. In silence I pray for an Indian Summer
