Parole Hearing Under Way
As Howling Latina writes this post, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports the hearing has been underway since this morning.
Oh where oh where are all those sanctimonious right-to-life religious zealots hiding...?
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.
Where is their faux moral outrage...?
