Troy Davis To Be Executed Sept. 21

Georgia death row inmate Troy Davis has officially been given just two weeks to live.

Georgia officials announced Wednesday (September 7) that Davis will be executed on September 21 at 7:00 p.m. for the 1989 murder of Savannah police officer Mark MacPhail.

This is the fourth time since 2007 that Davis has been given an execution date.

The latest order was issued by the U.S. Supreme Court who refused to overrule a federal judges decision that Davis had failed to clear his name after being given another chance.

Davis proclaims his innocence and has been the poster boy for anti-death penalty supporters across the world.

Previously rapper Mike Bigga a.k.a. Killer Mike and Syracuse University professor Boyce Watkins have both stated their opinions on the case.
