Baltimore MD – Call Larry Chisolm and ask him to reopen Troy’s case!

Call Larry Chisolm and

Troy‘s case!

Dear Curmilus

Call District Attorney Larry Chisolm and demand he reopen Troy‘s case

[CALL 912-652-7308]

Thank you for all the support you have provided for Troy Davis, the Savannah man facing execution by the state of Georgia for a crime that many believe that he didn’t commit.

Here’s the next thing you can do to save Troy’s life:

Please call District Attorney Larry Chisolm at 912-652-7308 and demand that he reopen Troy‘s case.

DA Chisolm needs to hear from the residents of Chatham County as he is making a decision and you can help make the difference.

As you know, Troy Davis was convicted of murdering a Georgia police officer in 1991. There is no physical evidence tying him to the crime and seven out of nine witnesses have recanted or contradicted their testimony. New evidence and new testimony have been presented to the Georgia courts, but the justice system refuses to consider this evidence — evidence we believe could save Troy’s life.

If there is one phone call you make today, please make it to Larry Chisolm’s office. You can reach his office at 912-652-7308. Once you call, tell the person who answers the phone that you are a resident of Chatham County calling in support of Troy Davis and you want Chisolm to reopen the case.

This is the one call you make that can save a man’s life.

Thank you.

From the Publisher – Michael Jackson dies at age 50

I was shocked to get the email on my cell phone from CNN this evening saying that Michael had gone into cardiac arrest. Shortly thereafter the Michael Baysden Show stated that it was believed that Michael had had a fatal heart attack. Later ABC sent me an email stating that Michael was dead. C.

Tarboro NC – Tonight’s community forum ppd.

It appears there was a break down in communication. This was a lesson learned and therefore this should not happen again. Greg who is new to community activism  is trying to do some great things in the community. I commend the brother for trying to educate himself and the community about what is going on around us. I will support this brother whenever I am available. C. Dancy II – DCN Publisher

Tonight’s east Tarboro community forum has been postponed.

The meeting was to be at Pattillo School, according to coordinator Greg Higgs, but school officials denied his request because they said he submitted it too late. (Daily Southerner)
