RUMOR: “Word is the Supreme Court gave a 7 day reprieve for the execution.” (twitter)
… Is delayed for no known reason.
There are rumors of a stay, there are rumors of the Supreme Court being involved. Stronger rumorsAmnesty International reports that there was a reprieve delay.
UPDATE: The US Supreme Court is
apparently considering the case. The execution is thus delayed. This is not a stay or anything along those lines. They are simply waiting to see.
RUMOR: Troy Davis was removed from the Gurney. That sounds close, but actually it is said he was removed from the gurney 90 min. before the injection. Which means ….. you lay there for a couple of hours first????? Holy crap.
And yes, I’m getting rather annoyed at all the people on twitter who are insisting that everyone else pray, and who will no doubt soon give credit to those prayers for the stay.
Atheists are much more against the death penalty than the praying types. Maybe instead of praying they should have noticed that they live in a barbaric society.
