MULTIMEDIA: Troy Davis Case Continues to Garner Widespread Attention

Georgia death row inmate Troy Davis was scheduled to be executed numerous times in 2008, but each date was stayed.  His case is currently under review by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit.  International interest has continued to mount because of concerns about his possible innocence.   Most recently, Amnesty International has assisted in preparing a multimedia presentation about his case with the music group "State Radio."  The video may be viewed here.  Davis’ case has garnered support from many quarters, including former President Jimmy Carter and the European Union. Davis' original conviction was based primarily on eyewitness testimony. Since the 1991 trial, 7 of the 9 non-police eyewitnesses have recanted their testimony, with some pointing to another suspect.
