Prison officials at 4:38 ET said to expect Davis’s execution within the half hour.

Over the years my thinking has evolved with the death
penalty just as it has with gay marriage. I no longer
believe in it as two many innocent people have set free
who were wrongly convicted and whether of not you
receive it depends upon where you live and the color of
the skin of the victim. When you live by the rule of an
eye for an eye, we all wind up blind.

There is certainly reasonable doubt about his guilt! The evidence is, at best, circumstantial! They should reopen the case!!!!!!!
