"I Am Innocent"

On Sept. 21, after having been scheduled for lethal injection three previous times, Troy Davis was executed for the 1989 death of Officer Mark MacPhail.

"I am innocent," he said while strapped to his lethal injection gurney just moments before he was executed Wednesday night. "All I can ask ... is that you look deeper into this case so that you really can finally see the truth. I ask my family and friends to continue to fight this fight."

In the following pages, BET.com takes a look at those who fought the fight to save Davis’s life in his last days.
