Troy Davis Rallies
September 22, 2011
In 1991, Davis was convicted — based solely on eyewitness testimony — of killing Mark MacPhail, an off-duty Savannah police officer, at a bus station. Seven of the nine eyewitnesses later recanted their testimony. Troy Davis was scheduled to be executed Wednesday, September 21 and last night at 11:08pm, after a roller coaster of emotions, he was put to death.
These photos chronicle two rallies that were held days prior to his execution.
