  1. I'm surprised that I haven't seen or heard about anything for Denver. Does anyone know if there will be a vigil in Colorado?

  2. New York, New York today (ignore the "tomorrow" text from yesterday):

    MARCH & VIGIL FOR TROY DAVIS!

    The state of Georgia plans to execute an innocent man tomorrow. We will not be silent in the face of this outrage! Troy Davis continues to resist and so shall we.

    GATHER TOMORROW AT 6 PM – HARLEM STATE OFFICE BUILDING – CORNER OF 125th ST. & ADAM CLAYTON POWELL BLVD.

    MARCH TO ST. MARY’S CHURCH, 521 WEST 126th STREET (btw. Broadway & Amsterdam)

    tmcharris@aiusa.org / nyc@nodeathpenalty.org for more info

  3. how about a vigil for the guy that was killed,90 percent of these guys say they werent there,nobody mentions the poor guy gunned downed by this coward thug,now he about to face justice he pooping his pants,if troy davis was white id bet all my money and life you wouldnt even notice ,you people probably dont even no all the facts ,theres a case in florida his name is valle cop killer after troy coward davis is dead you can jump on his band wagon,you only care about the law not troy..

  4. I might try to do one but is there anything in France? Anyhow, I will stay up till 1am (7pm est) asking for signature to the petition :(

  5. go to china to and check out how many are executed a year,check out how many heads are taken off in the middle east for nothing much,makes us look like wimps ,get your lazy asses over those countrys and stop death penalty ,you wont do it why?because they would laugh at you maybe even be head you for talkin,the usa is kind compared to some ,,cowards in this country you can complain and protest,over there theys slit your throats ,but you wont have the balls to go over there and fight against the death penalty.

  6. In response to dave (September 21st, 2011 at 1:36 pm)

    Sure the next step is to see abroad, but the first thing is offcourse to stop with your own stupidness. How else could you get your message trough?

  7. ya ok tim if you ran into troy davis in a dark alley in 89 i bet he would slit your throat,you people have no idea of reality most of these guys in prison would kill your mothers or kids if they could get at them,,you guys have to much time on your hands go get a job..

  8. collen when troy gets out of prison you goin to let him babysit your kids?you trust him ?while you go to work to be alone with your kids?back in 89 there was a guy walking around and alot of women trusted him he was sweet handsome his name was ted bundy he use take a knife and cut from the vagina to their heads to bad you guys werent there for him when he was on trial..

  9. For Dave: I have plenty of injustice to fight right here in the United States…only when those are corrected will I move across the ocean. And you know what? All of the injustices played out hourly in this country will fill the rest of my life and more. The horrible things happening in other parts of the world are upsetting to me, and I do whatever I can. But Troy Davis is my focus right now. He deserves everything I have to give to try to make this right. I would love to have him come to my house, eat with us, spend the night in my home because you know what? He's innocent. And I'd choose him to spend my days with rather than someone like you.

  10. Mr Davis, I don't really know about the details of your case but there is something I am certain of and this is your life is as much valuable as any other life.
    Michel, from France

  11. Dave please go find something else to do with urself, people on this post feels/ knows Troy Davis is innocent, since u dont feel like he innocent go find another post to write on, we dont have time to deal with your ignorance….THANKS

  12. Seriously, lets not turn this into just another wall for ppl to fight on… keep it about the vigils, ignore those who wish to turn it into a distracting fight. Or take it elsewhere.

  13. I'm wondering if there's a vigil going on in Denver too. Anyone? Anyone? Maybe just show up at the state capitol at 6?

  14. Dave, as you seem to fear the worst – why do you visit this page then? This is to support the victims of Justice itself – thousands and thousands of people all over the world are convinced that Troy is a person like you and me, who has been at the wrong time in the wrong place to be convicted innocently. Even the true murder of that policeman killed 19 ys ago has said so – NOW A TRUE MURDER HAPPENS IF WE CANNOT STOP IT TODAY!!!
    Susanne, Stuttgart, Germany

  15. Vanessa, I've been searching the Internet tirelessly to find info about a vigil in Denver. Since most of the vigils look to be 6pm Georgia time, I assume that if there is one here in Denver, it will be around 4. Post back if you hear of anything.

  16. Im with dave on this!! What about the family that has been without the cop he killed!! All you folks have seen is 4 or 5 damn hours worth of begging for this pukes life.. You only see one side of the story.. Half probably never heard of the story until today!! He was convicted on good evidence and 17 years later, now witnesses wanna say they were forced by police to make the statements they did! Horse shit! Who is to say that Troys family and friends arent threatening the lives of these witness' and their family to get them to recant their statements? Exactly! Think about both sides people! But this is what Amercans do, you dont think about cops until you need one of them,,, I think 09-11-2001 proved that!

  18. If there is any appeal, it should be to bring back Old Sparky at Reidsville so he can finish his sentence seated there.

  19. “Capital punishment is the most premeditated of murders, to which no criminal’s deed, however calculated can be compared. For there to be an equivalency, the death penalty would have to punish a criminal who had warned his victim of the date at which he would inflict a horrible death on him, and who, from that moment onward, had confined him at his mercy for months. Such a monster is not encountered in private life.”

    — Albert Camus

  20. I don't see a Los Angeles vigil listed as you say. Pasadena is a long way out. Anyone else interested in trying to do something at the federal building in Los Angeles or downtown?

  21. There is a Vigil tonight in Knoxville Tennessee starting at 6:30 at the church of the savior at 934 N Weisgarber Road.

  22. I see the L.A. vigil now but it's scheduled for 8 pm. The execution is scheduled for 4 pm our time. That will be 4 hours after the fact. Anyone interested in doing something earlier?

  23. Charlene, here's one in LA:

    Los Angeles: 2439 Silver Ridge Avenue, Los Angeles, CA 90039 – 8:00pm

  24. if there's a vigil in denver at 4, i hope to be there. i'll be coming from fort collins… do you think it will be over, i've never really been to a vigil before.

  25. Hello
    Maybe a pression way would be to make a boycott on the georgians products. What do you think about this ?
    God bless you all

  30. DENVER, COLORADO

    I will be protesting at the State Capitol today beginning at 3 o'clock our time (MST). Please come join me!!!!!!

    NOT IN MY NAME! TOO MUCH DOUBT!

  31. As there is no vigil here, I will be holding my own at home, sitting quietly, praying, holding a candle, and anxiously waiting.

  32. Thanks Lou! I'll be joining you there. Hopefully along with a few other people from Denver who have posted on here.

  33. "it is better and more satisfactory to acquit a thousand guilty persons than to put a single innocent one to death."(Maimonides)

    It sickens me to think that this Country will allow any State the right to put a man or woman to death… for any crime.

    Don't call yourself a Christian…. and don't "misquote" the bible to me…. don't show your prejudice and call a black citizen of this country "them guys"…

    5% of the worlds population and 25% of it's prisoners… You want room to house those that should be in prison…. then stop putting those away that do not need to be there.

    I don't understand with all the problems going on in this country why we continue to defend those who wish to destroy it.

    WAKE UP ! They have divided the Kingdom… and we are at war with the wrong enemy.

    Troy Davis… may God be with you

  36. John, I want to see you if it was your brother to whom that happens -I guess you haven't even read through the case, you just let your revenge spirit speak)))

  37. I'm feeling useless 'cause I can't do anything, all I can do is pray and I will! I can't stand such things is happening.

  38. Dear DURHAM, NORTH CAROLINA,

    We will be gathering on the courthouse steps at 6:00 pm this evening to pray. This is NOT A PROTEST OR DEMONSTRATION. This is a call to our Gods, our Guides, our Universe for healing.

    Please join us.

  39. A pebble’s strike on a lake’s surface, so is the volition of us all. It is a fool who ignores cause and effect; violence begets violence, suffering begets suffering.

    My heart goes out to all involved in this situation. Georgia, this is not the way, humanity, this is not the way.

  40. I’m surprised that I haven’t seen or heard about anything for Denver. Does anyone know if there will be a vigil in Colorado?

  41. New York, New York today (ignore the “tomorrow” text from yesterday):

    MARCH & VIGIL FOR TROY DAVIS!

    The state of Georgia plans to execute an innocent man tomorrow. We will not be silent in the face of this outrage! Troy Davis continues to resist and so shall we.

    GATHER TOMORROW AT 6 PM – HARLEM STATE OFFICE BUILDING – CORNER OF 125th ST. & ADAM CLAYTON POWELL BLVD.

    MARCH TO ST. MARY’S CHURCH, 521 WEST 126th STREET (btw. Broadway & Amsterdam)

    tmcharris@aiusa.org / nyc@nodeathpenalty.org for more info

  42. how about a vigil for the guy that was killed,90 percent of these guys say they werent there,nobody mentions the poor guy gunned downed by this coward thug,now he about to face justice he pooping his pants,if troy davis was white id bet all my money and life you wouldnt even notice ,you people probably dont even no all the facts ,theres a case in florida his name is valle cop killer after troy coward davis is dead you can jump on his band wagon,you only care about the law not troy..

  43. Justice will also die today, if this gruesome execution is not stopped. I am going to watch "Sylverster & Tweety Pie" cartoons, so that later I can bombard Savanna Police with clips of Sylvester spitting out Tweety Pie Feathers, pretending to be innocent!

  44. I might try to do one but is there anything in France? Anyhow, I will stay up till 1am (7pm est) asking for signature to the petition :(

  45. There aren't any in my part of Texas, so I'll be at my church holding my own vigil.

    This execution is a travesty.

  46. go to china to and check out how many are executed a year,check out how many heads are taken off in the middle east for nothing much,makes us look like wimps ,get your lazy asses over those countrys and stop death penalty ,you wont do it why?because they would laugh at you maybe even be head you for talkin,the usa is kind compared to some ,,cowards in this country you can complain and protest,over there theys slit your throats ,but you wont have the balls to go over there and fight against the death penalty.

  47. Come on Mr. District Attorney you know this man is INNOCENT he should not be executed because he was railroaded by police and the D.A office for a crime he didnt commit dont let your shame and pride send him to his death. you all are embarrassed that the real murderer was sitting right under your nose all this time as a witness let MR TROY DAVIES GO HOME

  48. Is this the world we want to have?
    Someone will be executed without his guilt was proved.

    If this happens to Troy Davis, it could happen to ANY other person too!

    EVERYONE who reads this should imagine they would be Troy Devis …
    So your life would end today at 1 clock based on a conjecture!

    Thanks to all supporters of JUSTICE and HUMANITY.

  49. In response to dave (September 21st, 2011 at 1:36 pm)

    Sure the next step is to see abroad, but the first thing is offcourse to stop with your own stupidness. How else could you get your message trough?

  50. pleas rethink this
    dont execute him. its wrong

    wake up..really..and fast

    best regards from sweden
    /Martin

  51. ya ok tim if you ran into troy davis in a dark alley in 89 i bet he would slit your throat,you people have no idea of reality most of these guys in prison would kill your mothers or kids if they could get at them,,you guys have to much time on your hands go get a job..

  52. Do people know of any other vigils in Los Angeles that might be earlier in the day and in more public places? The one currently listed is at a private residence up in the hills of Silver Lake, and it isn't until 8pm.

  53. collen when troy gets out of prison you goin to let him babysit your kids?you trust him ?while you go to work to be alone with your kids?back in 89 there was a guy walking around and alot of women trusted him he was sweet handsome his name was ted bundy he use take a knife and cut from the vagina to their heads to bad you guys werent there for him when he was on trial..

  54. Where do I sign up to fry his ass. The guilty need to face the music. He took a life. Now it is his turn. Being black is not an excuse not to face the music.

    Casey Anthony needs to join Troy.

  55. For Dave: I have plenty of injustice to fight right here in the United States…only when those are corrected will I move across the ocean. And you know what? All of the injustices played out hourly in this country will fill the rest of my life and more. The horrible things happening in other parts of the world are upsetting to me, and I do whatever I can.

  58. Seriously, lets not turn this into just another wall for ppl to fight on… keep it about the vigils, ignore those who wish to turn it into a distracting fight. Or take it elsewhere.

  59. We could only pray for Troy!

    Inconceivable that a man must die, who is innocent.

    I feel that he is innocent!

    His soul will go to heaven.

  60. I’m wondering if there’s a vigil going on in Denver too. Anyone? Anyone? Maybe just show up at the state capitol at 6?

    Susanne, Stuttgart, Germany

  62. Los Angeles –Starting at ~3:45, I will be standing at the (NE or NW) corner of Sunset Blvd. and Alvarado Street in Echo Park, holding a sign opposing the execution. I will be there until at least 4:30. Feel free to join me and to stay through the rush hour if you want.

  63. Vanessa, I’ve been searching the Internet tirelessly to find info about a vigil in Denver. Since most of the vigils look to be 6pm Georgia time, I assume that if there is one here in Denver, it will be around 4. Post back if you hear of anything.

  80. Thanks Lou! I’ll be joining you there. Hopefully along with a few other people from Denver who have posted on here.

  81. I was hoping there was one around the metro Hartford, CT area. Either way, I’m taking a stance!

  82. “it is better and more satisfactory to acquit a thousand guilty persons than to put a single innocent one to death.”(Maimonides)

    It sickens me to think that this Country will allow any State the right to put a man or woman to death… for any crime.

    Don’t call yourself a Christian…. and don’t “misquote” the bible to me…. don’t show your prejudice and call a black citizen of this country “them guys”…

    5% of the worlds population and 25% of it’s prisoners… You want room to house those that should be in prison…. then stop putting those away that do not need to be there.

    I don’t understand with all the problems going on in this country why we continue to defend those who wish to destroy it.

    WAKE UP ! They have divided the Kingdom… and we are at war with the wrong enemy.

    Troy Davis… may God be with you

    Facebook event listing at https://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=266582356709371

  84. John, I want to see you if it was your brother to whom that happens -I guess you haven’t even read through the case, you just let your revenge spirit speak)))

  85. I’m feeling useless ’cause I can’t do anything, all I can do is pray and I will! I can’t stand such things is happening.

  86. Dear DURHAM, NORTH CAROLINA,

    We will be gathering on the courthouse steps at 6:00 pm this evening to pray. This is NOT A PROTEST OR DEMONSTRATION. This is a call to our Gods, our Guides, our Universe for healing.

    Please join us.

  87. A pebble’s strike on a lake’s surface, so is the volition of us all. It is a fool who ignores cause and effect; violence begets violence, suffering begets suffering.

    My heart goes out to all involved in this situation. Georgia, this is not the way, humanity, this is not the way.

  88. Justice will also die today, if this gruesome execution is not stopped. I am going to watch “Sylverster & Tweety Pie” cartoons, so that later I can bombard Savanna Police with clips of Sylvester spitting out Tweety Pie Feathers, pretending to be innocent!

  89. There aren’t any in my part of Texas, so I’ll be at my church holding my own vigil.

    This execution is a travesty.

  90. Come on Mr. District Attorney you know this man is INNOCENT he should not be executed because he was railroaded by police and the D.A office for a crime he didnt commit dont let your shame and pride send him to his death. you all are embarrassed that the real murderer was sitting right under your nose all this time as a witness let MR TROY DAVIES GO HOME

  91. Is this the world we want to have?
    Someone will be executed without his guilt was proved.

    If this happens to Troy Davis, it could happen to ANY other person too!

    EVERYONE who reads this should imagine they would be Troy Devis …
    So your life would end today at 1 clock based on a conjecture!

    Thanks to all supporters of JUSTICE and HUMANITY.

  92. pleas rethink this
    dont execute him. its wrong

    wake up..really..and fast

    best regards from sweden
    /Martin

  93. Do people know of any other vigils in Los Angeles that might be earlier in the day and in more public places? The one currently listed is at a private residence up in the hills of Silver Lake, and it isn’t until 8pm.

  94. Where do I sign up to fry his ass. The guilty need to face the music. He took a life. Now it is his turn. Being black is not an excuse not to face the music.

    Casey Anthony needs to join Troy.

  95. We could only pray for Troy!

    Inconceivable that a man must die, who is innocent.

    I feel that he is innocent!

    His soul will go to heaven.

  96. Los Angeles –Starting at ~3:45, I will be standing at the (NE or NW) corner of Sunset Blvd. and Alvarado Street in Echo Park, holding a sign opposing the execution. I will be there until at least 4:30. Feel free to join me and to stay through the rush hour if you want.

  98. Are you kidding me? eye for an eye? Executing Troy Davis means serving justice? Executing someone controversially? I bet the victim family would call off the execution if this guy is not black. It's such a sad day!

  99. Lawrence Russell Brewer, a white racist was executed in Texas on 21-Sept, by lethal injection. He was convicted of the murder of James Byrd (a black man) in 1988. Byrd was chained to the back of a pick-up truck and dragged along a road until he died. A truly horrific murder.

    Where is Amnesty's high-profile campaign against white racist Lawrence Russell Brewer's execution? I've searched high and low and all I find is a high-profile, international campaign to prevent Troy Davis's execution. Were any vigils held against Byrd's execution?

    Anyone from AI want to comment on this obvious disparity in public action against a white racist's execution?

  101. Jimmy – You do not represent America. You and Fox and the rest of the noise machines who have created your type of violent vitirol are done. Had you even read part of the case, you would realize this man was innocent. But first you have to look over the part where it says he is a black man, now don't you. You are in the minority Jimmy, not us, and we will see to it your type do not prevail and do not turn America further into a hate machine.

  104. Dear Jim Bob, Jimmy Lee and Mango,

    For those of you wishing justice for the police officer that was killed in the Troy Davis case, or for those who are wondering why the white supremecist's execution didn't get as much press, it's because of this:

    All the evidence in Troy Davis' original conviction fell apart: 7 of 9 witnesses recanted their testimonies, many saying that police threatened them if they didn't testify against Davis, and 1 of the 9 witnesses was the other man who was accused of the murder. There was NO physical evidence. And, someone else actually admitted doing the murder.

    Basically, Troy Davis was executed on ALMOST NO EVIDENCE that he actually committed this murder.

    But because he was already convicted, and they refused to give him another trial, he was in the position of having to PROVE HE WAS INNOCENT. Which is hard to do, 22 years later and with no physical evidence. He offered to take a polygraph, and was denied. He presented the recanted testimonies and they were ignored. Expert testimony was never heard.

    And that is why the death penalty should be abolished. Because even though everyone knows there was no evidence, we killed a man anyway.

    It's a bad day for America.

  105. Jimmy – You do not represent America. You and Fox and the rest of the noise machines who have created your type of violent vitirol are done. Had you even read part of the case, you would realize this man was innocent. But first you have to look over the part where it says he is a black man, now don’t you.

    Kindly get your facts straight. There were 34 witnesses for the prosecution in
    the Davis trial, not 9. Now follow me here. That means there were 27
    witnesses that had nothing to "recant".

  109. C Kessler

    Please get your facts right, the fact it has taken this long to get to the execution shows that they were covering all other lines of enquiry during the post trial investigation.

    There were 27 witnesses who stated he did it. Press tend to leave that little fact out.

    The man was guilty and afraid of paying his sentence it seems. I love how you guys seem to think you have all the inside information on these case as soon as you jump on the morality band wagon. Go find a cause that could benefit your time.

  112. Rutgers Law School – Newark held a vigil for Troy Davis last night. Many soon-to-be attorneys gathered around the entrance of the law school, holding candles and reflecting upon Troy's death. Hopefully, advocates throughout the world will help to abolish the death penalty soon.
