On Eight Hours, Twenty Minutes

@laurel @vanburenboy @jfruh i think this case has a lot of potential to focus attention on other criminal justice issues besides the potential execution of innocent people - the discussion of the inherent fallibility of eyewitness testimony, for example, and momentum for law enforcement agencies to change their suspect identification techniques to reduce the probability of false identifications.

it is very frustrating, though, to see death penalty opposition reduced to opposing executions with a possibility of innocence.

On Eight Hours, Twenty Minutes

@jaimeleigh from a great post by s.e. smith (http://tigerbeatdown.com/2011/09/20/time-is-running-out-for-troy-davis/#more-3819):
"Both the NAACP and Amnesty International have petitions for clemency up. The petitions request that District Attorney Larry Chisholm (Telephone: 912-652-7308 Fax: 912-652-7328) withdraw the death warrant against Troy Davis. It is important to be aware that this alone will not halt the execution; Judge Penny Freeseman (912-652-7252) would need to approve it. You can also contact the Board of Pardons and Paroles (clemency_information@pap.state.ga.us, phone 404-656-5651, fax 404-651-8502) to request that they reconsider their decision. (Please note that the Governor of Georgia does not have the power to grant clemency in this case.) As always, keep contact short and sweet, and be patient if you get busy phone lines. ETA: The ACLU also notes that the prison contracts out its medical services to CorrectHealth: call and ask for a general strike of all execution personnel at Phone: 770-692-4750; Fax: 770-692-4754."
