From CNN's Carol Costello:
Troy Davis, convicted cop killer, will be executed by lethal injection tonight despite protest and assertions of his innocence from Amnesty International, the Pope and President Jimmy Carter.
Whether you agree with them is up to you, but Davis' case aside, American juries seem increasingly reluctant to see any inmate put to death, preferring life without the possibility of parole instead.
Although it's unclear as to why, their reluctance may be due to the fact that more than 130 people have been released from death row with evidence of their innocence since 1973.
