Outside the Jackson prison that houses Georgia's death row,about 100 people, including the Rev. Al Sharpton, gatheredWednesday afternoon for a prayer rally. As they shouted, "Free Troy Davis!" a man in a red SUV drove by and shouted, "Kill him!Kill him!"Several dozen people gathered outside the White House toprotest the execution. They held signs condemning it as a"lynching" and chanted "Too much doubt" and "What do we want? Justice!"About 150 people gathered in support of Davis in Paris, many of them carrying signs emblazoned with his face. "Everyone wholooks a little bit at the case knows that there is too much doubt toexecute him," Nicolas Krameyer of Amnesty International said atthe protest.Davis' execution has been stopped three times since 2007, but onWednesday the 42-year-old appeared to be out of legal options.
