[Editor's Note: The following statement was released by the Honorable Minister Farrakhan regarding the pending execution of Troy Davis.]

September 21, 2011 (3PM Central Time)

We are deeply saddened at the prospect of the state of Georgia taking the life of our brother Troy Davis.

Every life is precious with Allah, the life of the policeman that was killed and the life of Troy Davis.

The worst part of this is that an innocent man may die for a crime that most believe he didn't do. The arrogance of authority to not fiercely fight for the truth that may exonerate him is dangerous for the state of Georgia.

When Cain slew his brother Abel, God told him that the blood of your brother cries out from the ground for justice. If our brother is killed, and he is innocent, I feel sad for the state of Georgia for the God of Justice will retaliate.

May God's Peace be with him, be with his family, and those of us who would mourn his loss.
