December 13, 2005: Stanley "Tookie" Williams will die (part 6 of a series)

Here's an interesting comment that was left in the original post that started this series.
TOOKIE WAS NOMINATED BY ACTIVISTS WHO SAID THEY WANTED TO RAISE THE AWARENESS OF THE DEATH PENALTY TO A NEW LEVEL.

EVERY NOMINATION HAS BEEN BY AN ACTIVIST. HE HAS NOT WON. THE NOMINATIONS ARE TO REMAIN SECRET SO THE AWARD IS NOT A POPULARITY CONTEST BUT WILLIAMS GAINS PUBLICITY EACH TIME HE IS NOMINATED.

DURING THE APPEALS, WILLIAMS WAS CLAIMING TO BE BRAIN DAMAGED BUT WHEN ALL THE APPEALS WERE DENIED, HE DECIDED TO TAKE OWNERSHIP OF THE BOOKS THAT HIS GIRLFRIEND BARBARA BECNEL HAD BEEN WRITING TO SEE IF THAT WOULD GET HIM OFF THE PUNISHMENT THAT THE COURTS HAD GIVEN HIM.

HE CLAIMS TO HAVE RENOUNCED THE GANGS BUT YET, HE HAS BEEN RECEIVING THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS REGULARLY INTO HIS PRISON ACCOUNT FROM HIS OUTSIDE INTERESTS.

HE HAS RENOUNCED THE GANGS YET THEY HAVE BEEN GIVEN THE "GREEN LIGHT" TO WRECK HAVOC AND KILL AS MANY WHITES AS THEY CAN, ESPECIALLY PRISON GUARDS, IF HE IS EXECUTED.

SEE HOW THE TRUTH DOES NOT LINE UP WITH WHAT WILLIAMS AND HIS SUPPORTORS ARE SAYING?

LORA OWENS, STEPMOTHER OF VICTIM

I'm not sure if Lora Owens really left this comment, but whoever left it did their research and provided indisputable facts. One thing the pro-Tookie crowd fails to realize is that even if Tookie gave up the life of gangbanging, it's not going to bring back the lives of those he murdered. Writing childrens books shouldn't automatically mean that a four-time killer is let of the hook and allowed to live. If that were the case, then I'd suggest that everyone on death row loads up Microsoft Word and starts churning out the tear-jerkers.
