Troy Davis: 10 reasons why he should not be executed

Jackson, Georgia Wednesday 21 September 2011 14.04 EDT

http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2011/se ... 10-reasons

In 2007 the Georgia Board of Pardons and Paroles, the body which has the final say in the state on whether executions should go ahead, made a solemn promise.

Troy Davis, the prisoner who is scheduled to die by lethal injection at 7pm local time on Wednesday, would never be put to death unless there was "no doubt" about his guilt.

Here are 10 reasons why the board – which decided on Tuesday to allow the execution to go ahead – has failed to deliver on its promise and why a man who is very possibly innocent will be killed in the name of American justice.

Occupy Wall Street: the protesters speak

Wednesday 21 September 2011 15.47

http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/blog/20 ... t-protests

Casey O'Neill had no regrets. He had travelled thousands of miles across the country – and gave up a well-paying job as a data manager in California – to sleep rough in a downtown Manhattan public square, enduring rain and increasingly chilly nights. Police keep a close eye on him every day.

But O'Neill was happy to be part of the "Occupy Wall Street" protests that have transformed New York's Zuccotti Park from a spot where Wall Streeters grab a lunchtime sandwich into an informal camp of revolutionaries, socialists, anarchists and quite a lot of the just-plain-annoyed.

Insight: Fed's new rate policy twists insurers into a knot

NEW YORK | Wed Sep 21, 2011 3:09pm EDT

http://www.reuters.com/article/2011/09/ ... VL20110921

The problem is that returns on insurers' investment portfolios can't keep pace with the obligations they have accumulated from torrid sales of annuities and life policies over the past few years.

Are annuities the next bubble?

WASHINGTON | Tue Sep 20, 2011 4:02pm EDT

http://www.reuters.com/article/2011/09/ ... F620110920

individual investors, panicked by stock market selloffs that threaten their retirement dreams, have been doing something they have never done before: asking for them.

Paradoxically, they are looking for these retirement insurance products that come with guarantees at a time when many annuity payouts are puny, thanks to ultra-low interest rates.

HEY, LUCKY, YOU DONE BEEN HAD.
