The State of Georgia Board of Pardons and Paroles voted to deny clemency to Troy Davis.

The actions of the Board are astounding in the face of so much doubt in the case against Troy Davis. However, Amnesty says they not prepared to accept the decision and let anyone with the power to stop the execution off the hook... Stat tuned!
