In 2009, the Cajun Boy wrote about Troy Davis, a Georgia man who was dubiously convicted of murdering a police officer and sentenced to death. Today, the high court ignored the preponderance of doubt in the case and rejected his appeal, allowing prosecutors to move forward with his execution. That is, once the DEA gives them back their sodium thiopental.
It’s one of the key ingredients used in the lethal cocktail and the state’s stash was recently seized by the feds who are investigating whether it was legally obtained or not.
In the meantime, Davis’ execution can’t be scheduled and so instead he’ll have to sit around and die a thousand more deaths while he waits for authorities to sort things out and assign him an exact date to die.
