Struck by 2 Family Murders, Grieving Father Joins Victims' Kin Seeking Troy Davis Clemency

www. - The campaign to halt the execution of Troy Anthony Davis has brought together a diverse group of people, including people whose lives have been affected by murder. Democracy Now! interviews Atlanta resident, John Starbuck, a grandson of a murdered police officer. Twenty-nine years ago, Starbuck's grandfather, Lester King was murdered. In a terrible twist of fate, Starbuck's daughter, Meleia Willis-Starbuck, was also murdered years later in 2005. In the face of extreme tragedy, Starbuck has now devoted much of his life to working on restorative justice — a way of healing through reconciliation. He is a member of Murder Victims' Families for Reconciliation and Georgians For Alternatives to the Death Penalty. Last week, he helped deliver a letter to the Georgia Board of Pardons and Paroles that was signed by 110 murder victim family members and called on the board to grant clemency to Davis. Also interviewed is Larry Cox, executive director of Amnesty International USA.
