Ga. executes Davis; supporters claim injustice

claim injustice

Strapped to a gurney in Georgia's death chamber, Troy Davis lifted his head and confirmed one last time that he did not kill police officer Mark MacPhail just a few feet away after a glass window, MacPhail's son and brother watch in silence.

Outside the prison, a crowd of extra than 500 demonstrators cried, hugged, prayed and held candles they represent hundreds of thousands of supporters worldwide who took up the anti-death penalty cause as Davis' final days ticked away.

"I am innocent," Davis said moments earlier than he was executed Wednesday night "All I can ask is that you look deeper into this case so that you really can lastly see the truth i ask my family and friends to carry on to fight this fight."
