September 19, 2011 – Segment 2

Troy Davis has been on Death Row in Georgia since 1991 for murder.  He was convincted based on the testimony of nine witnesses, but since the case seven of the witnesses have recanted their testimony, citing pressure from police to identify Davis. This Wednesday he is scheduled to be killed by lethal injection.  We’re joined today by Deirdre O’Connor, a lawyer who has worked on Davis’s case.  She is Founder and Executive Director of Innocence MattersMarvin “Doc” Cheatham, past President of the Baltimore NAACP, joins us in the studio as well.
