Troy Davis: 14 Days in May – The execution of Edward Earl Johnson

This was the third time I watched this documentary on the last 14 days in the life of Edward Earl Johnson who was executed in Mississippi’s gas chamber on May 20, 1987. This is a horrific act of cruel and inhumane punishment that has everything to do with vengeance and little to do with justice. The evidence against Edward Earl Johnson was weak and tenuous and further investigation after his execution revealed it was highly unlikely Earl Johnson was guilty. In less than a week a similar fate awaits Troy Davis. To try to stop his execution please sign the many petitions, write emails whatever you can to stop this from happening OR just write to Troy that you care, that he is loved whatever happens! Let this not be the last five days of Troy Davis’s life.

In this Follow up to 14 days in May – Johnson’s lawyer, Stafford Smith [Reprieve] searches for the truth behind Johnson’s arrest, trial and execution.
