'It's Over': After Three Torturous Hours Strapped To The Chair Troy Davis Has Been Executed Davis finally died at 11.08pm
All nine Supreme Court justices voted to deny the stay after taking more than four hours to come to their decision
Appeal had challenged ballistics linking Davis to the crime, and eyewitness testimony identifying Davis as the killer
Davis convicted of killing off duty police officer Mark MacPhail in 1989 Defence lawyers say there is still 'lingering doubt' of Davis' guilt By HANNAH ROBERTS 22nd September 2011
Mental torture: The convicted murderer was sedated and strapped to the chair in the execution chamber before Georgia officials stopped the process minutes before the scheduled 7pm death
The execution of Troy Davis has gone ahead despite a dramatic intervention minutes before he was due to be put to death. The death row inmate was executed by lethal injection within an hour of the decision by US Supreme Court justices.
In a gruesome scene, the convicted murderer was said to be sedated and strapped to the chair in the execution chamber before Georgia officials stopped the process just before the scheduled 7pm death.
A last minute appeal by Davis' lawyers challenged ballistics linking the death row inmate to the 1989 murder of off-duty policeman Mark MacPhail and eyewitness testimony identifying Davis as the killer. After more than four hours the appeal was denied by the Supreme Court Justices. Five of nine Supreme Court judges were needed to stay the execution.
A statement issues by the Supreme Court read :'The application for stay of execution of sentence of death presented to Justice (Clarence) Thomas and by him referred to the Court is denied'

Too bad they didn’t zap him with 66,000 volts instead.
They aren’t even back to work yet. They don’t start until October...so I question it was all nine, too.
So I don’t understand why the media is referring to him as “Troy Davis.”
The street name he preferred to go by was “Rah” which stands for “Rough as Hell.”
The media doesn’t call “50 Cent” Curtis Jackson and they don’t call “Snoop Dogg” Calvin Broadus.
On twitter liberals like Alec Baldwin are claiming that Michelle Malkin “killed” an innocent man LOL..funny how Baldwin doesn’t mention how liberal judges on the Supreme Court also denied him a stay in his execution..I guess he forgot that little tidbit
They’re all racists, all 9.
Apparently, “gruesome” has a different meaning in the UK...
Oh, the horror, it sounds about as gruesome as sedation dentistry.
So, basically, all these killer-lovers achieved was to make the murderer sweat for a few more hours before he died. Well done, “Reverend” Al.
Ahhhhh, yes. A British publication........always quick to judge our “Capital Punishment” law.......but desired execution for the “Colonials”.
One less Obama voter.
“In a gruesome scene, the convicted murderer was said to be sedated and strapped to the chair in the execution chamber”
Unlike his victim, who was given a kind, peaceful death.
(Seething sarcasm OFF)
>In a gruesome scene, the convicted murderer was said to be sedated and strapped to the chair...
Apparently, gruesome has a different meaning in the UK...<
But it wasn’t gruesome for these limey vaginas when foreigners burn their cities to the ground in the last riots.
Had someone make a snarky comment on FB about how she couldn’t believe that people could consider themselves pro-life and still support the death penalty.
Wanted to message back that I didn’t know that all 9 Supreme Court justices consider themselves pro-life.
Some people are just idiots.
Not near as gruesome as the scene Davis left behind in 1989.
The street name he preferred to go by was Rah which stands for Rough as Hell.
rah in Hebrew means wicked
How about in a gruesome scene Troy Davis shot an innocent police officer in the chest and head at pointblank range.
Unfortunately, no... 'cause now, he's dead.
Are there any other sources than this rag?
>”One less Obama voter.”
Unfortunately, no... ‘cause now, he’s dead.<
We are talking about Dems here...the same party which registers dead people to vote. Troy Davis WILL vote.
Drudge has up to date links.
Not to mention that legal injection uses a gurney, not a chair.
Kim Kardashian took a bold stand and tweeted her concern
I have not followed this case although I am aware that he killed an LEO.
If "cruel and unusual" can be quantified, then he being in the chair for three hours, was!
He has paid his debt with interest.
May the lord accept him.

RIP Officer Mark MacPhail.
It’s a fairly easy way to die. Some pundit once observed that we reserve the best methods of death for the worst among us.
More than a dozen courts have looked at Davis case and refused to overturn his death sentence.
How about the seven black jurors who convicted him?
And who took, iirc, less than two hours to to do it (i.e.: convict).
For liberals it’s a moral equivalency(innocence in the womb= convicted murderer)...libtards are amazing.
I'm with you on that. He's paid the piper as he ought, and I don't think the Lord is quite as vengeful as we humans ... not least because people like Davis aren't a threat to Him, as they are to us.
Yet..... the Brits still burn effigies on the bonfires of Guy Fawkes every November 5th.
Penny for the Guy?
Two words: good riddance.
is he the one that requested a polygraph before he died?
Two words: good riddance.
Not to be outdone, Texas executed the Byrd dragger tonight also. Perry didn’t want to seem softer than Georgia. I’m sure they will be a question about it tomorrow on Fox.
Now if only Mumia Abu-Jamal would FINALLY meet the same fate. It’s only be 30 years.
One more cop killer on his way to hell.
I'm pretty sure I undersatnd what the word "gruesome" means, and I'm really missing the "gruesome" aspects of this story. Note that they don't bother to apply the word to, say, the cold-blooded murder of Mark MacPhail. Wouldn't fit the agenda.
U should see how Michelle Malkin is being attacked on twitter by Alec Baldwin(Who calls people who support Davis’s execution a bunch of “Right wing whackos”) he is calling for Malkin’s death on twitter..its absolutely disgusting..she didn’t do anything..all she did was make a dedication to the REAL victim here, Mark MacPhail who unfortunately many have forgotten about
“May the lord accept him.”
Satan had first dibs.
And Perry should say..."Before anyone from the press asks, I slept soundly last night, thank you."
