Student Speakout: Troy Davis Reaction
Advertising
I am writing to you to discuss the troubling outcome of the Troy Anthony Davis execution. I believe that the outcome was unjust seeing how they didn’t have any physical evidence. The only evidence they had was nine eyewitness. Seven of them recanted and said the Georgia Police forced them into saying it was Davis. The most shocking event that came out of it was two of the remaining witnesses might’ve been the real gun men. I really don’t think this case came down to what race he was, but rather it came down to government of Georgia making an example out of an innocent man. The government party that is in office for Georgia is at its end and the governor probably needs to show that they’re not short on crime. But you really couldn't have expected the outcome to be any different then what happened. The man was sentenced to death years ago but didn’t try to postpone it before a hour before the actual time. What I’m hoping is some good comes out of this. The good, I hope, is that kids who are doing some of the things they’re doing realize that could have been them. Troy Davis was just in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Sincerely,
Jeffrey Stevens
