Would You Let an Innocent Man Die & Do Nothing? Jasiri Goes in on Troy Davis' Case


Jasiri X uses Pete Rock's classic beat, "They Reminisce Over You" to shed light on the case of Troy Davis. The state of Georgia plans to execute Troy Davis on September 21, 2011. There is still serious doubt as to Troy Davis’ guilt, and by putting him to death Georgia runs the risk of killing an innocent man.

Please call on the board to save Troy Davis’ life. The fact is, no physical evidence connected Davis to the murder. Seven of the original nine witnesses have recanted, with many saying their testimony was a result of law enforcement pressure. Of the remaining witnesses, one is highly suspect and the other could be the actual culprit in the officer's murder. Now, despite these and other facts, the state of Georgia has taken the final steps toward Davis' execution -- and only the Georgia Board of Pardons and Parole stands between Davis and the lethal injection chamber.

A global day of action is scheduled for Sept. 16 in Atlanta, wherein they will invite thousands to march in solidarity and to host simultaneous gatherings in many states and across seas. Additionally, groups such as Amnesty International, the NAACP, and the National Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty are circulating online petitions, Facebook messages and Twitter action alerts in what could be Mr. Davis’ last chance. Political, religious, and community leaders are being called upon to ask people to make calls, send emails and fax letters daily to Georgia Governor Nathan Deal and the Board of Pardon and Paroles to demand clemency.
