White House Declines Comment on Troy Davis Case

As the clock ticked down to Georgia’s execution of Troy Davis, the White House declined to comment.

“Dating back to his time in the Illinois State Senate, President Obama has worked to ensure accuracy and fairness in the criminal justice system – especially in capital punishment cases,” said White House Press Secretary Jay Carney. “However, it is not appropriate for the President of the United States to weigh in on specific cases like this one, which is a state prosecution.”
