FILE - This undated file photo provided by the Georgia Department of Corrections shows death row inmate Troy Davis. Georgia corrections officials have set a Sept. 21, 2011, execution date for Davis, for the 1989 murder of Savannah police officer Mark MacPhail. Davis has drawn a considerable amount of worldwide support, from the Vatican to the European Union, from President Jimmy Carter to Pope Benedict XVI. The NAACP has launched an "I am Troy" campaign, and a Change.org petition asking the five-member Georgia pardons board to spare his life has attracted more than 100,000 signatures.
