Reggie Clemons is seeking clemency for a crime he may not have committed, just as Troy Davis did until his last breath.
But there is a way for change we can believe in to come to pass after all.
As Justice Marshall once said, “the scandalous state of our present system of capital punishment will cast a pall of shame over our society for years to come.”
RIP, Troy Davis.
Attorneys trying to prevent the cruelty of a botched execution are challenging states’ efforts to conduct experiments on their clients with new execution drugs.
