Condemned Man Gets New Day In Court

Georgia death row inmate Troy Davis has reason to hope ~ which is something he hasn't had in a very long time. On Monday, the U.S. Supreme Court ordered a lower court to take another look at the Davis' case. CNN's Gary Tuchman talks with a juror who helped convict Davis, then T.J.

    If Troy Davis is found inocent then that means that this court slanderd the truth and all people involved should be put in prison for the same lenth of time he did maybe our court system's need a czar.

    A day in court doesn't always amount to freedom. I want this man to be heard, but that doesn't mean he will be free now does it? Let's see what the court does and then look at this story? He deserves to have his case heard, but again this is the NAACP. Charlie Brown tries to kick the football and Lucy pulls it away at the last minute.

    Just shows that the system is broken,and needs overhauled top to bottom. Say not for me? What about when you need it. Another thing is that elected judges can't be imparshial because like a politician they have to awnser to the voters or they are out of a job.

    I guess the Georgia Court system is in need of a CZAR!!! Obama needs to stop making so many travelling trips and apply himself as what a President does during his term!!!! If the man is innocent then there had to be some very strong accusations against him for this to happen, it would not be the first time an innocent person has sat in prison just waiting for the big day to come. Here is a perfect idea!! Lets take dizzy Pelosi out of her now title Speaker of the house and put her as the Gerogia CZar of the courts!! Wow!! that would sure be a comical sight to see!!! Oh yes Nancy!!! they do have Tuna in Georgia. Betty

    Should definitly take another look if there is a chance the person is not guilty.Prosecuters tend to make their side of the story appeal to the jury,reguardless if the evidence proves guilt or not.In my opinion most procecuters would make better fairytale authors.
