The struggle for justice doesn’t end with me. This struggle is for all the Troy Davises who came before me and all the ones who will come after me. I’m in good spirits and I’m prayerful and at peace. But I will not stop fighting until I’ve taken my last breath.
I’m so saddened by how our justice system failed. There was far too much doubt for his execution to be justified, and the onus is now on us, the American public, to either change the judicial process with respect to the death penalty or to legislatively get rid of it all together. False positives should not be an option.
