Parole Hearing Under Way

Let every man, woman and child of faith pray that Georgia's state Board of Pardons and Paroles will heed the cry for justice and commute the death sentence of Troy Anthony Davis; and that the Georgia Supreme Court will order a new trial.

As Howling Latina writes this post, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports the hearing has been underway since this morning.

After listening to more than five hours of pleas to spare the life of convicted cop killer Troy Anthony Davis, the state parole board is now hearing from those who want the condemned inmate's scheduled execution tomorrow to proceed.

U.S. Rep. John Lewis (D-Ga.) sat on the front pew in the clemency hearing room, ready to support Davis' clemency request. Lewis left before the hearing was over, and did not comment to reporters. Davis' lawyers, Jason Ewart and Danielle Garten, declined comment after the hearing.

Oh where oh where are all those sanctimonious right-to-life religious zealots hiding...?

Where is their faux moral outrage...?
