tookiesaveslives8jt Stanley Tookie Williams Watch: NOT Afraid to DieProtesters gather on the steps of City Hall to demonstrate against the pending execution of Stanley Tookie Williams in San Francisco, Wednesday, Nov. 30, 2005. Death penalty opponents rallied around the state Wednesday to call on Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger to save the life of convicted killer-turned-gang peace activist Stanley Tookie Williams. The co-founder of the Crips street gang is scheduled to die Dec. 13 by lethal injection at San Quentin state prison after being convicted of murdering four people in 1979.

The San Francisco Chronicle has Williams says he’s prepared for death but hopes for life

In interview, condemned killer denies guilt, tells of redemption

Stanley Tookie Williams is not afraid to die.

The 51-year-old convicted murderer, who has spent nearly half of his life on Death Row, knows his scheduled execution date is less than two weeks away, but he says he is not fearful, that it’s a prospect he has dealt with his entire life.

“Being near death is nothing new to me or any other black male,” Williams said Thursday during an interview in a visiting room at San Quentin State Prison. “I’ve been shot and close to death many times. This is no different.

“But I am praying that I live. Of course, I want to live.”

Tookie, what about your innocent, hapless victims who you brutally murdered?

Did THEY want to LIVE?

What about:

Albert Owens

Yen-I Yang

Tsai-Shai Chen Yang

Yee-Chen Lin

The Los Angeles County District Attorney’s office Reponse to Stanley William’s Petition for Executve Clemency.

In preparation for the execution, prison officials have asked Williams what he would like for his last meal, whether he wants to invite any friends or family to witness his death and whether he would like a minister present.

“I told them that if I am going to die, I don’t want food or water or sympathy from the place that is going to kill me,” said Williams, a soft-spoken man with a bodybuilder’s physique and graying hair that is pulled into a tight ponytail. “I don’t want anyone present for the sick and perverted spectacle. The thought of that is appalling and inhumane. It is disgusting for a human to sit and watch another human die.”

And Tookie did it disgust and repulse you when you shotgunned your victims to death?

“I am praying that the governor will recognize my work,” Williams said over lunch, a turkey sandwich and a can of grapefruit juice purchased by one of his visitors. “Clemency is not based on legal issues but on individual change that benefits society.

“I have changed and am doing something that is positive and productive and is not at all disruptive to the prison.”

What a load of CRAP.

Justice for Tookie’s Victims

Williams says he wouldn’t change anything about his life, because it took the bad times to get to the good. He says he probably would not be an author if not for his tragic start.


NO REMORSE.

NO REDEMPTION

BIG JAB.

    I feel that have should be put to death for the crimes that he had committed. There’s no way that he should be granted Clemency. And not just because it’s a black man, If any other race had committed this crime I would feel the same way. No matter what has changed his life. If he a has turned his life over to god he will be seeing him real soon.

    One of the reason our jails or over populated is that we have so my people that are found guilty beyond a reasonable doubt and they sit on death for many years. When they should die as thier victims did.

    i think that if that fag
    still was all buff n shite

    I think he should be put to death! He believed in the death penalty when he killed these people. So, why should we keep feeding and supporting him. Did anyone ever take a moment to think that he has been planning to be the perfect inmate and do gooder so when he got closer to death himself that he might have people rally for him.
    It is not about race, it is about justice. Why don’t we just let the criminals think that they can get away with their crime too!!!

    My greatest concern is that the taxpayers footed his bill for the past 25 years. It shouldn’t have taken that long to implement justice. All of the appeals; all of the lawsuits (“I don’t like green peas to touch my mashed potatoes”); and all of the political paperwork is overwhelming. Ask any con and they will swear “I didn’t do it.” All of them are innocent…or so they say. To commit such horrendous crimes and not begin to atone by admitting wrongdoing only reflects to me that he is another case of psychopathy, and a continued threat to society. He should be gracious that he wasn’t made to suffer as his victims did. Personally, I’m tired of hearing about how mistreated these poor convicts are. I have no problem with bringing back chain-gangs with bread and water. They are treated and fed better than some of our hard-working Americans (just ask survivors of Katrina). Accolades to you Gov. Arnold, for not bending under scrutiny among your peers. He got what he gave!!!!

    I dont thing it was right that he was put to death. The man was changed and could go no were in jail and all he want was to LIVE DAMN is that to much to ask for a man of his standards and a man that has all ready served 26 years of his life in jail already!!!!! SO what the state of CA. is telling World is that it takes 26 years for justice to be served on a man the did the crime 26 years ago. How dumb is that? Why did it take so LONG? I feel sorry for the family of the victims but 26 years in prison is a long time for a man that has wrote books for young kids on Anti-gang volience and has tryed his harders to stop the gang volience between the streets Gang Bloods and Crips!!!! I dont know what the world is coming to but i feel like they could have sentence him to life in prison, he already had to wait 26 years and have all that hope and still get layed to rest. R.I.P Stanley “Tookie” Williams OR.G U will be in my memory for ever!!!!!!

    It seems many here have an opinion but lack the ability to spell or construct an intelligible sentence. Work on that first and then your opinions might carry some weight.

  • Righty-Tighty

    The point is not whether or not he was reformed, etc….but that there is a penalty for breaking the law. There is a legal demand for the lives he took. If he was really reformed, he would realize it was his own actions that put him to death. Clemency is reserved for those (in my opinion) who know their past deeds were worthy of execution, but ask to be given mercy. His comments are very telling—as if he believes because of the good things he has done, he shouldn’t have to pay for the bad. It doesn’t work that way. Still, there seems to be no regard for the law. Some people believe they are exempt. What he wanted was exemption, not clemency.

    This man was convicted on hearsay, and the fact that he was living a gang life style. There was no physical evidence, DNA, credible witnesses to this crime. There is also no rehabilitation in the prison system. The fact that Stanley Williams looked within himself and emancipated himself from mental slavery from a menacing lifestyle and made an effort to reach out to other youngsters who might follow the same path shows more of a Human Spirit than any of the hateful comments that are writing and commenting without full knowledge of the facts in this case. People are spoon fed what the media puts out and the media puts out biased one-sided information. For instance the fact that paid informants of the police department came forth from 3 different states to sign affidavits on Stanley William’s behalf, which Arnold Schwarzenegger had knowledge of shows no interest in justice. They wanted any black man to pay guilty or not! He could’ve help save so many!!!

    First of all is there any evidence Tookie killed them four people? There should be sorrow for the people who were killed and for Stan Williams. Only God knows what took place the night the four people were found dead. It’s certainly messed up he was killed this morning. Our black men are being killed daily, and do you think George or Arnold care? Well if you thought that think again. I’ve read so many articles about Albert’s mother. What about Stanley’s mom? I also seen and read articles about if he has really been converted! God can do anything. So the next time people want to point there finger and judge others they should remember there are 3 more fingers pointing right back at them.

    “Our black men are being killed daily……”

    There’s the problem.

    I did nt no the man. i did not no what he had done. i am only 15. i have heared so manythings about him. if he killed the for people he could have got the death plenty but when he was in his cell he saved many of thousands of people of being killed by gangs that run the streets of Amercia. He has told childreen not to get involved in gangs. Tookie i am your supportor and i will listen to you because you have fath. R.I.P STANLEY TOOKIE WILLIAMS

    Actually, Sadam didn’t have anything to do with 9/11.

  • Jc

    naw but sadam had killed his own people thousands of them. Just because he could. Bin laden the bush’s best friends did 9/11.

    hasta la vista baby

    Bush kills his own people by sending them to fight a pointless war on false pretenses.

    Stanley helped found the Crips. I think they in turn, founded the Bloods too? I heard that somewhere, Tookie’s work lives on everyday as Crip members sell more drugs and kill more people. Thats how he will be remembered. Only impressive thing about Tookie was his physique. You dont see too many gang members buffed like that. Most are skinny/average with chicken necks

    OMG. You people are freaks. I like Vincent’s point of view, he seems to be the only person with the voice of reason. To the 15 yr. old — stay in school and please concentrate on grammar classes. To jloCC, please go back to school. Education is freedom. The problem with Tookie being executed is simple: Punishment for murdering 4 people should be swift and harsh. Allowing a person to sit on “death row” for over 20 yrs. is unconscionable and just plain pathetic. States supporting the death penalty need to carry out their own laws quickly. The example of Tookie shows all criminals out there that they can kill anyone they want and happily sit in San Quentin for 20 years before they are offed. Of course, the four he murdered are long forgotten and now Tookie is the martyr. How sad. And to all you bleeding heart liberals, please, would you like some cheese with that whine? I’d like to hear your “save the murderer” songs when your mother looks like Yee-Chin Len. R.I.P.

    FOR STARTERS VINCENT’S RIGHT… HUGHHHH!!!! JAY-LOKE… NOTHINGS MORE FRIGHTING THAN AN EDUCATED THUGG… THATS WHY TOOKIE WASEN’T RELEASED, HE WAS POWERFUL MENTALLY AS WELL AS PHSICALLY. CONDOLENCES TO THE FAMILIES HURT BY TOOKIES ALLEGED CRIMIES. BUT I DON’T AGREE IN THE DEATH PENALTY AT ALL.TO MURDER SOMEONE FOR MURDER IS MORALLY WRONG IT ALLOWS US TO PLAY GOD AND NONE OF US ARE PERFECT ESPECIALLY OUR JUDICIAL SYSTEM. AND TOOKIE COULD HAVE DONE MORE ROTTEN’ IN PRISION HELPING OUR KIDS NOT TO FOLLOW IN HIS FOOT STEPS, THAN HE COULD ROTTEN’ IN THE GROUND. AND IF YOU THINK THE CRIPS IS A RUTHLESS GANG YOU SHOULD CHECK OUT THE L.A.P.D. I BET YOU THEY GOT’EM BEAT!!!! OH AND BY THE WAY… WAS ANY OF YALL AT THE MURDER SCENE WHEN IT HAPPENED????!!!!!! NO ONE KNOWS WHAT REALLY TOOK PLACE THAT NIGHT OF THE MURDERS… WHY DO YOU THINK HE STAYED ALIVE SO LONG!!?? THERE WAS NO CLEAR EVIDENCE THAT HE COMMITTED THE MURDERS… SO ANYBODY AND EVERYBODY NEED TO CHECK THEMSELVES BEFORE THEY TRY TO JUDGE SOMEONE ELSE!!!!!
