State Radio & Amnesty International Join Forces in defense of Death Row Inmate

State Radio has joined forces with Amnesty International USA (AIUSA) to produce an online public service announcement about death-row inmate Troy Davis; Davis has been on death row for 19 years and came within 24 hours of execution twice, despite a strong claim of innocence that, to date, has not been heard in a court of law. State Radio frontman Chad Stokes Urmston heard about Davis and was so moved by the case that he penned the song “State Of Georgia” and has donated it to AIUSA to develop the PSA.
