The Rev. Marvin L. Morgan and Steve Woodall were arrested this evening at Gov. Sonny Perdue’s office after spending all day there attempting to speak with Perdue about the Troy Davis death penalty case.

Morgan, Woodall and Sister Pat Sullivan began their wait just after 11 a.m. The governor never responded to their request. Morgan and Woodall were arrested after the Capitol closed at 5:00 p.m. and were taken away in a squad car. Police responded with a “no comment” when asked what charges Morgan and Woodall face.

Around 4:45 p.m., police blocked me from entering the building, threatened to confiscate my camera and escorted me out.

Late today, the Georgia Supreme Court denied Davis' request for a stay of his execution, which is set for tomorrow evening. But the U.S. Supreme Court announced that it would decide tomorrow whether to hear his appeal.
