Dr. Sally Witt interviews Terry Benedict, the filmmaker. I really don't know how to categorize this important interview! A few months ago, we learned about a man named Troy Davis who is on death row in Savannah Georgia. Troy has been on death row for almost 20 years. Despite what our personal or political positions are about the death penalty, I think we can agree that no innocent man should ever be put to death. He came seconds away from lethal injection but they really couldn't be sure that he was guilty due to new evidence that exists that proves his innocence.However, he can not get a new trial. Troy is a black man convicted of killing a white off duty police officer back in the 80's. I value your time so I will not go into the details in this email, but after our own research, coupled with public records, we are convinced this man is innocent and has been caught in a system that is ultimately going to kill him. What happened to Troy could happen to any of us or our children. All we need is for one person to say we did something wrong and it's over, even without a shred of evidence. Troy just received his execution date for September 23, 2008, less than 2 weeks away!!. We are working tirelessly to find a way to help save his life. But even if we can't, this story must be told, even in its short form film, right now.
