And the state’s Board of Pardons and Paroles is going to have innocent blood on its collective hands, too:
[…O]n Monday, the board rejected pleas to reconsider its recent decision to deny [Troy Anthony Davis] clemency on grounds there is too much doubt as to whether Davis shot and killed a Savannah police officer.
Also Monday, the Georgia Supreme Court denied Davis’ request for a stay of execution. Justice Robert Benham cast the lone dissent.
Davis’ last hope to avoid his 7 p.m. Tuesday execution now appears to rest with the U.S. Supreme Court, where his lawyers have also asked for a stay of execution.
