Never Going To Georgia

If I ever needed another reason to never set foot in the state of Georgia, USA, this is it.  I realize that the Georgia Board of Pardons and Paroles has at least two members that are people of color.  So why do they commute the sentence of a confessed white person and send to his death a black man who maintains his innocence?

Reminds me of the character that Morgan Freeman played in The Shawshank Redemption.  The board would ask him if he felt he had been rehabilitated? He’d say yes and he’d be rejected.

Or did the Georgia Board just want to hear Troy Davis say he was sorry?
