When the court finally announced it wouldn't take up Troy's case, the justices gave no explanation whatsoever.
But the facts of this case demand an explanation. How can anyone read Troy's appeal and not conclude that there should be at least a hearing into the evidence of his innocence?
"I'm truly disgusted by these people," said Martina Correia, Troy's sister and a tireless advocate for him. "I don't even know what to say. I wonder why I'm still a U.S. citizen sometimes."
"I wonder why I'm a US citizen sometimes." I find myself wondering the same thing these days.
