Have Politics, Public Opinion Changed Georgia's Death Penalty?

Oct 17, 2018

A new GPB radio drama and podcast called "Beyond Reasonable Doubt: The Troy Davis Project" reflects the conflicting public discourse that surrounded the Troy Davis case. Davis was convicted of murder and executed in Georgia.


We spoke with former Atlanta Journal-Constitution reporter Rhonda Cook and the Marshall Project staff writer Maurice Chammah to learn more about the death penalty and execution process in Georgia.


Cook reported on the Davis case and was present for his execution in 2011. Chammah spoke about the intersections of race and class in death penalty cases.
