**************

Doth God pervert judgment? or doth the Almighty pervert justice?
 ~ Job 8:3


************
Last year, when Troy was facing imminent execution, the Georgia Pardons and Paroles Board gave Troy clemency, stating that the Board "will not allow an execution to proceed in this state unless and until its members are convinced that there is no doubt as to the guilt of the accused." 

Unfortunately, Troy received no new trial since the Board granted clemency last year in July.  So, what is the Board's reason for not again granting clemency at its hearing on September 12, 2008?  Nothing has changed since Board members issued the above statement, except perhaps the Board decided that it is now fine and dandy to execute Georgians while doubt of guilt remains evident to millions of people all over the world.

Below is my appeal to Governor Perdue for Troy.  Please use the link to also send your objections, even if you already signed a petition - even if you only have two words to write:  "I object." 

Thanks in advance.  Troy is counting on YOU.  Troy, his family, and many people who stand for human rights appreciate your help.

State of Georgia http://gov.georgia.gov/00/gov/contact_us/0,2657,78006749_94820188,00.html

Dear Governor Perdue:


I am writing on behalf of justice for Troy Davis.  I also want to thank you for all that you do for Georgia to help this stay a great state.  Georgia has a very rich heritage, and it attracts people and corporations from all over the globe.  Please don't allow our state to be marred with any accusations of Jim Crowe-type injustices while under your administration. 

Sir, I am sure I do not have to recount for you the history of Mr. Davis' case and the facts that would make his execution without a new trial an atrocious act of injustice.  Georgia does not need this.  We do not need the international community and corporate enterprises from all over this nation to look at Georgia as being a backward, prejudice state, more interested in killing another black man than in upholding justice and the standards of America, where each citizen has been avowed with the inalienable right to life. 

However citizens can forfeit their right to life by doing heinous crimes, such as Mr. Davis is accused of committing.  But did he do it?  Please do not allow his execution to proceed until that question can be answered with resounding confidence, Governor Perdue.  To proceed with the execution while these questions of innocence remain would allow a horrible taint on our marvelous home, Georgia.

Blessings,
/s/

I feel Care2 members should KNOW about the "work from home" ads, RECRUITING "MULES" TO CARRY OUT ILLEGAL ACTIVITIES. Just like the Drug Cartels do... A person who was recruited unwittingly by one of these ads, was given in a seattleweekly.com article ...
