Background to Troy Davis' case:

There has never been any physical evidence—no murder weapon, no fingerprints, no DNA—that pointed to Troy as the person who shot and killed Officer Mark MacPhail in a Burger King parking lot in Savannah, Ga., in 1989. The evidence against Troy comes down to nine witnesses presented by prosecutors at Troy’s trial—and seven of them have since recanted their original testimony, with most saying they had been coerced by the police to implicate Troy. This case screams out “unfairness”—yet Troy has never been able to get evidence of his innocence presented to a jury.
