Troy Davis’ Execution – Birth and Death Charts

Troy Davis - Executed without proof of guilt. Sept. 21, 2011, Jackson, GA, 11:08 PM

“The struggle for justice doesn’t end with me. This struggle is for all the Troy Davises who came before me and all the ones who will come after me. I’m in good spirits and I’m prayerful and at peace.”
~Troy Davis on the day before his execution 

Troy Davis was executed tonight (Sept. 21, 2011) in Georgia after being on death row for 22 years for the murder of a Savannah Police officer, Mark MacPhail in August of 1989. Troy maintained his innocence to the end of his life at 11:08 pm EDT, and asked, just before the lethal injection began to drip into his arms, that MacPhail’s family dig deeper after his death to learn the truth about his case. His last words were directed to those physically responsible for taking his life – the employees of the prison – and he said, “May God have mercy on your souls. May God bless your souls.”

Saturn was in a  tight conjunction to Troy’s sun at the time of his death.

The chart below shows Troy’s birthchart in the inner ring and the transits for his death in the outer ring.

I want to share this letter that went out from Amnesty International’s Laura Moye just 20 minutes after Troy died:

Dear Michelle,

I’ve been down here at death row, and we just heard the horrific news.

After a torturous delay of more than 4 hours, the state of Georgia has just killed Troy Anthony Davis.

My heart is heavy. I am sad and angry. The state of Georgia has proven what we already know. Governments cannot be trusted with the awful power over life and death.

Today, Georgia didn’t just kill Troy Davis, they killed the faith and confidence that many Georgians, Americans and Troy Davis supporters worldwide used to have in our criminal justice system.

Wende, on our Abolish the Death Penalty Campaign team, met with Troy Davis yesterday to convey the support that he has had from all of you. He asked us to deliver this message back to you:

“The struggle for justice doesn’t end with me. This struggle is for all the Troy Davises who came before me and all the ones who will come after me. I’m in good spirits and I’m prayerful and at peace.”

Let’s take a moment to honor the life of Troy Davis and Mark MacPhail. Then, let’s take all of our difficult feelings and re-double our commitment to abolition of the death penalty.

Please pledge to continue this fight because it is far from over.

This Friday (Sept. 23, 2011) at 7 pm EST, please join us for a special call to discuss Troy Davis’ case, what your work means for the death penalty abolition movement as a whole and what we can do next.

I am Troy Davis. You are Troy Davis. We will not stop fighting for justice.

Thank you for everything you have done to make your voice heard.

In Solidarity,
Laura Moye
Director, Death Penalty Abolition Campaign
Amnesty International USA
