Running for Troy Davis

September 22, 2011 § Leave a comment

Today, Troy Davis was denied clemency and was subsequently executed at 11:08pm E.S.T.

As Ben Jealous of NAACP wrote,

Troy’s execution, the exceptional unfairness of it, will only hasten the end of the death penalty in the United States. The world will remember the name of Troy Anthony Davis. In death he will live on as a symbol of a broken justice system…

Tonight, I will be running for him, his families, and his supporters.
