Chicago Criminal Attorney Comments on the U.S. Supreme Court's Reversal of the Stay of Execution for Troy Davis

Whoa!  Any moment now, Troy Davis will take his last breath.  A few hours ago, The U.S. Supreme Court weighed in and the imminent execution was off, now the U.S. Supreme Court has decided to let the State of Georgia continue meting out its version of Justice.

From the Atlanta Journal Constitution, moments ago:

The Supreme Court late Wednesday rejected an 11th-hour request to block the execution of Troy Davis, who convinced hundreds of thousands of people but not the justice system of his innocence in the murder of an off-duty police officer.
The court did not comment on its order late Wednesday, four hours after receiving the request. Davis' execution had been set to begin at 7 p.m., but the high court's decision was not issued until after 10 p.m.

Is this the America that makes you proud?
