This Is All Kinds Of Wrong of the Day: In 1991, Troy Davis was convicted of murdering off-duty policeman Mark MacPhail in parking lot in Savannah, Georgia, and sentenced to die.
As no physical evidence connected Davis to the crime, and a murder weapon was never found, the conviction was entirely based on the testimony of nine witnesses, seven of whom have since recanted all or part of sworn statements.
Several of the witnesses said they were pressured by police officers to place the blame on Davis, while ten new witnesses have since come forward to say Sylvester “Redd” Coles — the man who reported Davis to the cops — was the real murderer.
Despite a slew of doubts concerning his guilty, Davis is on course to be executed Wednesday night at 7 PM by lethal injection. The Georgia Board of Pardons and Paroles today denied his request for clemency, even after hearing from a juror in Davis’s trial who said the verdict could no longer be trusted.
A last-ditch effort to prevent Davis — who has had three previous stays of executions — from being put to death is underway, but many fear Davis’s legal avenues have unjustly reached a dead end.
Marvel was all like, “Afro-Xicano Spiderman FTW!” And DC was all like, “Lulz, plz, Teen Titans was all sorts of POC superheroes while you were all ‘boo hoo Peter misses MJ.’”
His real name is Miguel Jose Barragan. He was raised in a very small Mexican village called El Chilar. He was very loved by his family and the village as well — and they were as accepting of his homosexuality as they were to his super powers when they first manifested. To that end he grew up in an angst-free environment. He was born out of the closet and so he has a very refreshing outlook on life. - Scott Lobdell
