court orders stay of execution for troy anthony davis  

Posted by SjP in ,

Just in from CNN, the Supreme Court orders a stay of execution for Troy Anthony Davis. Davis was to be executed tonight at 7P.

The U.S. Supreme Court granted a last-minute reprieve to a Georgia man fewer than two hours before he was to be executed for the 1989 slaying of an off-duty police officer.

Troy Anthony Davis, 39, has his execution stayed by the U.S. Supreme Court on Tuesday.

Troy Anthony Davis learned that his execution had been stayed when he saw it on television, he told CNN via telephone in his first interview after the stay was announced.

He said he was "thankful to God" for the news that came during an emergency session the U.S. Supreme Court convened.

Davis said "everyone should pray" for the slain officer's family.
The 39-year-old also said that he is "very grateful for everything that everyone is doing" for him and that he would "accept" whatever decision the Supreme Court rendered in the coming days about his
case.


Much obliged to all Sojourners who joined in this effort! This time we were successful!

Speak the Truth!

Obliged to you for hearing me, and now old SjP ain't got nothing more to say.

I hope that he's telling the truth, and that the truth will set him free.

I hope he's telling the truth, too. But even if he weren't, you don't kill someone just because you think they might have committed murder.

To All, yes this was great news. I was worried that the Supreme Court would not stay the execution in time because Troy's case was initially on their docket for next week. Its my understanding that the stay is only temporary and pending the decision of the Court. The Court will hear the case on Monday. Let us all pray that justice prevails in and for the case of Troy!
