TROY DAVIES FINALLY EXECUTED

You guys remember Troy Davies of the 1989 murder case.....I think so. He was finally executed yesterday by lethal injection at Georgia Diagnostic and classification state prison...... Troy Davies as it 'll be recalled in 1989 allegedly shot a police officer Mark Macphail in Georgia.He was tried in court and sentenced to death in 1991. However Amnesty international and other groups took up the case and world leaders like former president Jimmy Carter and Pope Benedict XVI called for another trial or for him to be granted an evidentiary hearing. The appeal was later held in June 2010 and the conviction was upheld and execution date set for September 21 2011. RIP
