A protester in Jackson, Ga., home of the prison where Troy Davis was executed, is helped off the ground after hearing about a delay of the execution by the U.S. Supreme Court.

On Wednesday’s Truthdig Radio in collaboration with KPFK, in the hours before the execution of Troy Davis, Mike Farrell and Dave Zirin discussed what Zirin called a “legal lynching.” Also: L.A.’s labor battle and the politics of Hollywood.
