TROY DAVIS DENIED POLYGRAPH TEST

The day of Troy Davis’s execution is finally upon him: the state of Georgia will execute Davis at 7 p.m. Wednesday despite controversy over his conviction. In a last-ditch effort, Davis demanded a polygraph test that he says could prove his innocence—a request that was denied by prison officials. Davis has had his execution date delayed by courts three times before, but this time he has exhausted all appeals. He will spend six hours with his family from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., get a clean set of clothes at 3 p.m., and eat his last meal—a cheeseburger, potatoes, baked beans, slaw, cookies, and a grape drink—at 4 p.m. At 5 p.m., he will be allowed to make a final recorded statement and at 6 p.m. he will be offered a sedative to calm him before he goes to the execution chamber.

Does this bother you as much as it bothers me?
