Statement From Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter on Troy Anthony Davis
 
"Rosalynn and I are deeply saddened by the execution of Troy Anthony Davis by the State of Georgia. If one of our fellow citizens can be executed with so much doubt surrounding his guilt, then the death penalty system in our country is unjust and outdated. We hope this tragedy will spur us as a nation toward the total rejection of capital punishment."
