Mr. Davis’s sister, Martina Correia, a former solder, has long argued that the police simply got the wrong man. A parade of witnesses have recanted since the original trial. New testimony suggests the prosecution’s main witness is the real killer.
The list of people asking the Georgia parole board to offer clemency includes the following: fifty-one members of Congress, leaders of the Southern Baptist Church, Amnesty International, former Congressman Bob Barr, Jimmy Carter, Cee Lo Green, the Indigo Girls, death penalty supporter and former F.B.I. Sessions, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, and hundreds of thousands of people who have signed online petitions.
On Friday, about 1,000 people marched to Ebenezer Baptist Church for a prayer vigil, one of hundreds of rallies around the world.
