"Troy Was Innocent": Family & Supporters of Troy Davis Mark 10 Years Since His Execution

On the 10th anniversary of the execution of Troy Davis, a major milestone in the fight to abolish the death penalty in the United States, we speak with two people who were there on the grounds of the Georgia prison where Davis was executed: Kimberly Davis, Troy Davis's sister and an anti-death penalty activist, and Ben Jealous, president of People for the American Way and former president of the NAACP. "We know that Troy Davis did make a mark on the world," says Kimberly Davis. "We want to continue to fight until we demolish the death penalty, one state at a time."
