The American Culture Of Death Strikes Again.

Despite a world-wide call for his clemency, Republican Governor of California, Arnold Schwarzenegger decided to execute Stanley Tookie Williams earlier this morning. At 12:01 a.m. PST, Williams was executed by lethal injection, for a crime that he said he never committed.

Schwarzenegger, under pressure from the GOP, decided to carry out the execution, despite that a material witness had come forward, swearing to an affadavit that he had heard an inmate claim that he was going to frame Williams on murder charges, in order to receive a reduced sentence offered to him by the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Office.

Williams had been one of the founders of the Crips street gang in Los Angeles, but from behind bars managed to arrange a truce from the rival street gang the Bloods. A prolific author, William’s work lead him to be nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize.

The United States stands as the only industrialized nation in the world that executes its citizens.

=====>So if there was a world-wide call for clemency for small-pox would that have been enough of a reason not to try to eradicate it? What does THAT have to do with the decision whether or not to execute this murderer?

=====>EXACTLY! A crime that HE says he did not commit. But the evidence, the dead bodies and the witnesses all together made a more than compeeling case to a jury and 24 years of appelate judges that he DID indeed commit these crimes. Not only did he commit them but the manner in which he did it. I am sure that if you took a poll of most prisons they will say they didn't commit the crimes they were convicted of either. If Tookieiwas such a great guy then why don't you take in a few of these Crips into your own home???

=======>Huh? Do you read this stuff or do you just react emotionally to these things without thinking them through? First of all Schwarzenegger is probably the least conservative Republican that could be in office right now next to Bloomberg in NYC. He was following the judgements of several apellate judges, mountains of evidence and the decision of the jury. Not to mention the lack of remorse from this guy. And this so-called witness is a jailhouse witness. You are going to put the decision to convict someone based on the testimony of someone who has been shown to be an unreliable or dishonest witness? Yikes! This from the guy who STILL refuses to acknowledge the hard facts about how Democrats DID support the President and now refuse to admit it! It's amazing how the left in this country is so quick to grasp onto anecdotal evidence over hard evidence!

======>Adolf Hitler was also Time's Man of the Year in 1939! Big deal! So what? So this erases the actual murders of four innocent people????? So should Hitler been excused from his murder of millions of Jews, Christians, Jehovah Witnesses, and Gays?

The United States stands as the only industrialized nation in the world that executes its citizens.
======>When you kill four innocent people, get convicted, have 24 years of appeals, you deserve death. Tookie Wlliams wasn't executed because he was black, a non-Republican, a famous cause-celeb or because the current Governor is a Republican. He personally and brutally killed four people. He didn't kill them in self-defense. He didn't kill them in the name of religion. he didn't kill them because he was under the influence of drugs, mad at his girlfriend, mad at white people, protesting the impartial judgements against the poor, or because he was frustrated with the oppressive nature of the wealthy over the poor. He killed them for sport. He laughed as he puilled the trigger on one of his victims. So please stop defending the life of a man who made a lving by killing other Americans including his own African Americans. Funny how the left in this country likes to defend the lives of Tookie Williams but can't apply that same fervor to defnding the lives of the unborn. Funny.....

Here you go ladies and gentlemen. Here is the result of this person who had a "world-wide call for his clemency" and was a "prolific author". I wonder if these folks would have enjoyed reading "Tookie's" childrens books or would have beneiftted from reading them to their own children...had they lived long enough to have had any.

UHoh. Looks like MORE bad news for the left again. It seems that the IRaqi people are turning out in mass to vote today! My GOD! Haven't they been reading your posts? Are they THAT ignorant to not have been watching the reports from CNN, MSNBC, and the Washington Times? DIdn't they get the message that the insurgents are right and their Democracy was wrong? Yikes! Alva you need to email your jihadist buddies over there and get them to STOP cooperating with the vote! Hurry!!!!!!

Bad News report.........

Iraqi elections went off without a hitch. Almost 70% voter turnout with no major violence and a major Sunni turnout! I am sorry Alva. Maybe your jihadist brothers will do a better job next time to try to convince the Iraqis that Democracy doesn't work.
