  1. This man DID NOT do it the real guy that committed this crime is still walking the streets living his life like nothing ever happened while they have an innocent person locked up. The justice system is LAZY because if they did there job right they would know they have the wrong person. There is absolutely NO evdiense no weopen no DNA no NOTHING that points to LAVONTA LEE DAVIS of commiting this crime and I want justice!!!! The justice system saw that he did not have a strong family consistering the fact that when he was a minor he lived in the haven which is a foster home for boys they saw that and just assumed he was just another black kid from the streets and pinned this on him so they wouldn’t have to get off they lazy behind and work well enough is enough and it is time for this innocent man to come home to his FAMILY!!!
