In 2007, the Georgia Board of Pardons and Paroles, the body which has the final say on whether executions should go ahead, made a solemn promise to Troy Davis. The Board stated on the record that he would never be put to death unless there was "no doubt" about his guilt. Mr. Davis was executed by lethal injection on September 21, 2011. He went to his death still proclaiming his innocence of the 1989 murder of a Savannah, Ga., police officer.
