After the U.S. Supreme Court rejected a stay in the execution of convicted cop killer Troy Davis, the state was allowed to proceed with the lethal injection.
Davis was declared dead at 11:08 pm EST on Wednesday night.
The 42-year-old Davis was put to death for the 1989 killing of an off-duty police officer in Savannah, Georgia.
Reports also stated that just moments before his death, Davis still maintained his innocence, telling the victim’s family that he was not guilty.
Troy Davis’ execution by the death plenty is a sad night in America…
“The Rogue: Searching for the Real Sarah Palin,” Joe McGinniss’ new book alleges that Sarah Palin had an affair with basketball player Glenn Rice in 1987 when he was a freshman in college and she a young sports reporter! The hook-up allegedly occurred only one year before she was married. The book will be published on September 20, 2011.
Rice went on to lead Michigan to the title in 1989, and then had a very productive NBA career (he was a phenomenal shooter). He wound up marrying the gorgeous Christina Rice, but that fell apart when he found a man she was having an affair with in the closet of a house they used to share together. Rice beat the crap out of the guy (the man needed nine stitches).
Rice confirmed the story to McGinniss.
