Executing Tookie would be a political assassination


Stanley "Tookie" Williams should not be murdered by the State of California.

Here's why:

1. He is an African American who never received a fair trial in front of his peers.
2. Hollywood celebrities have come out against the execution even big names like Mike Farrell who normally don't get involved with politics.
3. It was never proven that Tookie knew the Crips were going to be a criminal gang when he started them. He certainly can't be held responsible for the crimes they committed after he left the club.
4. He is a victim of racism and cannot be held responsible for his actions.
5. The NAACP has asked us not to.
6. It would be the equivalent to a lynching.
7. Think of all of the young men who will never have a chance to have their lives improved by Tookie.
8. All of the press coverage and discussion about it will traumatize kids. Don't they have enough to deal with?

Do I think we should just let him go? Of course not, I'm a realist. Since Tookie admitted that he committed crimes many years ago I would insist on a strict probation that would put him right back in jail if he committed any more crimes (especially if he murdered somebody).

Part of the probation should also be that he agrees to keep publishing those excellent children's books that have done so much to fight crime. How many kids do we see running around killing people since he started his publishing career.

How can you say he never received a fair trial? The most liberal court in the land has even agreed with the jury. I personally cannot wait till they smoke his murderous ass. Will he order Chicken or Steak? Ha Ha Ha!

True,
You are absolutely spot on. If Mike Farrell is in Tookie's corner it would be criminal to smoke him.

Well, BlueBabe, if he murdered YOU before he got put back into the slammer, maybe that line of reasoning(!) would be OK. After all, isn't giving Tookie a chance worth more to society than your own life?

He might even kill you nicely, since you supported him. Kinda like the way the Islamofascists treat their Western supporters nicely.

Bluegirl...

Your child like perception of the world never ceases to amaze me. You honestly have very little clue how things go out beyond your sheltered little hole that you are in, do you?

The man is a criminal, should be put to death, and...oh my God...they did it!

At least that is one thing the honorable Gov of Kalifornia has done.

You barking moonbat.

I've decided that I'm going to name my child "Tookie". Whenever that happens.

 
At 5:23 PM, Blogger True Blue said...

"Whenever that happens"? When you have a child or when you name them?

Seriously, I think it's beautiful and expect that you are not alone. Malcom was certainly a popular name after Malcom X and Shawnaleesha is beautiful too.

I abhor anyone who would make light of something as serious as an execution.

Baring that, this post is now moot.

'Twas Tookies last night


'Twas the night before Christmas and all through San Quentin, the Crips were protesting, and liberals were ventin'.

The cyanide hung by the chamber with care, in hopes that the reaper soon would be there.

The inmates were nestled all snug in their bed; except for Old Tookie, who soon would be dead.

And me with my beer mug, dressed warm in my flannel, had curled up to watch it, on the Fox News Channel.

I set up my TIVO to record the news station, and thoroughly loved the momentous occasion.

It seemed lady justice had gotten her way, and that there would be one less savage today.

When outside the jail there arose such a clatter, the cameras had turned to see what was the matter.

When what to my civilized eyes did appear, but a lineup of actors, all liberal, half queer.

The misguided freaks drew some curious looks, as they proclaimed his innocence; clutching his books.

The tears then flew out from Sarandon's eyes, as she nominated him again for the Nobel Peace Prize.

The actors were tethered to an ACLU sleigh, all towing the line of the urban decay.

On Asner, on Penn, on liberal cop-haters, On Sharpton, on Jesse and
other race-baiters.

Then at 3:01 all curled up like a beetle, Tookie cried like a bitch as they gave him the needle.

When up from the actors there arose such a cry, they had failed in their mission, and Tookie DID DIE !!

I heard Bill O'Reilly say, as I turned out my light, Merry Christmas to all... there was justice tonight !!

None could have said it better...got this in an email.

OMFG!!! Thank goodness ("goddess"?) I didn't have anything in my mouth when I read that Tookie Carol...wonderful.

May Tookie's soul rot in Hell, along with all those who defended his actions, without him having given any hint of remorse or even acknowledgement that what he did was monstrously wicked.

 
At 9:53 PM, Blogger True Blue said...

So you're assuming he's guilty? Were you on the jury? Did you see him do it? People generally tell the truth on their death bed, right? Well he said he didn't do it.

Second, should every mistake that someone does when they are young haunt them the rest of their lives?

Finally, how much of his problems were the result of his being a victim of racism. I say a lot.

bluegirl, you just dooooon't get it...too bad, so sad.

You lose.

 
At 1:07 AM, Blogger Wanderlust said...

Well perhaps one day BlueBabe will find herself raped or maimed or left for dead by someone like Tookie...or worse, be made to see her child be treated that way...

I have known loved ones and friends who were victims of rape and molestation, and if I had been there when it happened, I would have no problem at all with putting a bullet between their eyes.

Yes, BlueBabe, I mean it.

 
At 7:29 AM, Blogger True Blue said...

Tookie was never charged with rape or molestation. He had a wife and by most accounts several girlfriends--none of whom ever complained of abuse. He had a love child from one of the couplings who carries his name.

Revenge will never get anything you want.

Also, you speak of rape, Tookie was raped by racism and was acting out. Of course what he did was wrong and he needed to go to jail until he had redeemed himself. But once he was redeemed what good did it do to have him sitting in a jail cell where it was hard for him to pen books for children?

I have a commentary about Tookie on my blog. I'm glad they smoked his arse. Maybe he will be a better person in his next existence.

 
At 9:57 PM, Blogger True Blue said...

Other than (an admittedly bad) error of judgement in his youth, Tookie was a model citizen. How many people in the world have stopped warring gangs, saved kids from gangs, and written hit children's books? He certainly made a mistake but we took the life of a man who was contributing to society.

True Blue. You are one of the sexsiest, and most intelligent woman I have seen blog. Between you and Ann Coulter it's a toss up.

 
At 3:10 PM, Blogger True Blue said...

Tookie turned himself into a great man which is amazing looking at all of the hardships he had to overcome from being black in a white person's world to dealing with the stigma of a murder conviction and resulting death sentence. Unless you've walked in Tookie's shoes and done the things that he has done then you should criticize or judge him.

I'm GOD! I'll judge anyone I damn well choose to! I judge you to be in need of some serious lovin.

Blue, do you think God approves of the lifestyle that you lead? Do you think you are going to heaven even though your choice of sexuality is an abomination before the Lord? Even if you profess to be a Christian (and I have no idea if you are) do you think that you will be given a pass?

Couple of things I wanted your opinion on...

 
At 9:31 AM, Blogger True Blue said...

To the last commenter, I'm not sure if you are refering to me or to one of the earlier comments. I don't judge people and would hope that you wouldn't judge me like the self-hating, right-wing nut jobs do.

You are correct. I need to get up a final post and will try to get to that. Right now I'm manning the phones at the Raza Foundation trying to undo the damage that the LA Times did with an unfair series on this beautiful labor union.

I'm assuming this is a blog by a sheep for sheep? If that's the best shot at critical thinking you can take, I'd think you should hang it up and give up.

No wonder American liberalism has imploded. FDR and JFK are spinning in their graves, I'm quite certain.
