    ...at this point. The point is that any evidence used to prove Davis' guilt has been proven tainted and unreliable. Given a standard of due process, you can't justify what is happening.

    That is the point.

    •  No, the point is that the evidence has not (2+ / 0-)

      been PROVEN to be tainted. Perhaps he is entitled to a new hearing on that issue.  Perhaps even a new trial.  But to suggest that the evidence has been PROVEN (based on newspaper accounts) is rather ludicrious.

      The way things stand now, is that he has been proven guilty.  It may very well be that the conviction is infirm and ought to be set aside.  But at this stage of the game, he is proven guilty.

        ...have you been residing?

        Seven witnesses recanted --> their testimony, used to convict Davis, is tainted.

        One of the remaining witnesses who didn't recant was overheard confessing to the crime --> his account is tainted, as is everything used to implicate Davis.

        No physical evidence implicating Davis exists.

        QED -- he's been found guilty, but proof? There is none.
