START A PETITION

Action Request: Petition
Location: Georgia, United States
My friends here on care2, I published an article about a man in GA who has been denied stays of his execution at least 3 times. Now the Supreme Court has denied his appeal.
He is accused of murdering a Savannah, GA police officer in the late'80's. Most of the witnesses who testified against him in the original trial have come forth, saying they were not telling the truth, that they ahd been coerced. No reason is given as to why he continues to be denied a re-trial. There does not seem to be enough evidence against him, since these witnesses have come forward.
I don't know how to make this a petition. If someone would help me with that, I would appreciate it.
I hope everyone reads this, and will help get the word out, and try to help this man, whose guilt has not been proven.
Thank you.

I have a concern, and I don't know how to get it out to the public. We all know how when movies are made about certain breeds of animals, a lot of people rush to get one of whatever it is, then they realize pet care is a lot of work, or they become tired of them when the pet doesn't remain a baby.  There is a current Disney movie entitled Beverly Hills Chihuahuas. I am concerned that millions of chihuahuas will be bred and bought by people who have no idea what they are doing. I want responsible people to be able to have pets that they can love and care for, not just because it is a temporary trend. If anyone can help me in getting the word out, I appreciate any suggestions.
Thanks,
clara

Troy Davis Stay Of Execution Denied By High Court Troy Davis has been convicted of murder and is sentenced to be executed this evening in Atlanta, GA. All witnesses who originally testified against him, have withdrawn their testimonies, claiming they had been coerced. There is insufficient evidence at this time to convict him. He has been granted a stay once before, due to public outcry. The request for a stay this evening has been denied. He is scheduled to be executed later this evening.
