    Davis, 42, was put to death by lethal injection after a last minute appeal to the US Supreme Court failed. His request to take a polygraph test was also turned down. The appeal to the US Supreme Court led to a temporary delay of more than three hours. Davis maintained his innocence to the end, saying: "I did not have a gun. For those about to take my life, may God have mercy on your souls. May God bless your souls." According to Mr. Lewis, a local radio journalist, Davis addressed some comments to the family of his victim, police officer Mark MacPhail, while he was strapped to the gurney.He told them: "I did not personally kill your son, father, brother." He also asked them to "dig deeper" into the case so they could "find the real truth." Mr Lewis added: "And then he said to the prison staff - the ones he said 'who are going to take my life' - he said to them, 'MAY GOD HAVE MERCY ON YOUR SOULS,' and his last words were to them, 'may God bless your souls.'" Davis was pronounced dead at 11.08pm local time.

    Where is the Justice for me?

    A plea from Troy Davis

    Where is the Justice for me? In 1989 I surrendered myself to the police for crimes I knew I was innocent of in an effort to seek justice through the court system in Savannah, Georgia USA. But like so many death penalty cases, that was not my fate and I have been denied justice. During my imprisonment I have lost more than my freedom, I lost my father and my family has suffered terribly, many times being treated as less than human and even as criminals. In the past I have had lawyers who refused my input, and would not represent me in the manner that I wanted to be represented.

    I have had witnesses against me threatened into making false statements to seal my death sentence and witnesses who wanted to tell the truth were vilified in court.
    For the entire two years I was in jail awaiting trial I wore a handmade cross around my neck, it gave me peace and when a news reporter made a statement in the local news, "Cop-killer wears cross to court," the cross was immediately taken as if I was unworthy to believe in God or him in me. The only time my family was allowed to enter the courtroom on my behalf was during the sentencing phase where my mother and sister had to beg for my life and the prosecutor simply said, "I was only fit for killing." Where is the Justice for me, when the courts have refused to allow me relief when multiple witnesses have recanted their testimonies that they lied against me? Because of the Anti-Terrorism Bill, the blatant racism and bias in the U.S. Court System, I remain on death row in spite of a compelling case of my innocence. Finally I have a private law firm trying to help save my life in the court system, but it is like no one wants to admit the system made another grave mistake.

    Am I to be made an example of to save face? Does anyone care about my family who has been victimized by this death sentence for over 16 years? Does anyone care that my family has the fate of knowing the time and manner by which I may be killed by the state of Georgia?
    I truly understand a life has been lost and I have prayed for that family just as I pray for mine, but I am Innocent and all I ask for is a True Day in a Just Court. If I am so guilty why do the courts deny me that? The truth is that they have no real case; the truth is I am Innocent. Where is the Justice for me? By Troy A. Davis

    To prove beyond reasonable doubt also depends on the evidence submitted.
    If real Guy is telling the truth & yet is liable: Justice will not be seen being done all over the world.

    Hakuna mwenye Haki ya Kutoa Roho ya Binadamu mwenzake, Hata kama wao wameona ni sahihi kumtoa Roho lakini Bado si Sahihi na wala haiwezi kuwa sahihi....Ila wametimiza tu matakwa ya ubinadamu wao dhaifu.

    Hapo ndipo utaamini kuwa duniani hakuna haki. Kwa tukio la huyu jamaa yeyote yule linaweza kumtokea. Binadamu unamsaliti binadamu mwenzako kwasababu ya ngozi, hakika Wazungu wa Marekani wana chuki mbaya sana hasa linapokuja suala la kuamua haki kati ya mwafrika na mzungu. I will always hate them because of this incident.

    He made a grave mistake to surrender. Despite his own explanations to that effect, what prompted him to do that remains a mystery.

    Tulichojifunza ni kwamba usione kila alie jela ana hatia kuna kesi za kutengenezwa nyingi ni kwa sababu ya mgongano wa maslahi na wanaoumia ni wanyonge ...mmesikia kwenye statement zako alivyowakilishwa na wakili ambaye hakumtetea kama vile alivyotaka...rip troy
