Stanley “Tookie” Williams Watch: Death Warrant Signed

Rev. James M. Lawson, Jr., right, president of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, addresses a crowd of death penalty protesters Monday, Oct. 24, 2005, in Los Angeles. A judge signed a death warrant Monday for convicted killer and Crips co-founder Stanley ‘Tookie’ Williams, rejecting his attorneys’ request for a nine-day delay in his execution date.

The ASSociated Press has Death Warrant Signed for Crips Co-Founder.

A judge signed a death warrant Monday for Stanley “Tookie” Williams, co-founder of the notorious Crips gang, rejecting his attorneys’ request for a delay in the execution date to give them more time to seek clemency from Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Williams is scheduled to die Dec. 13 at San Quentin prison. He maintains he is innocent, and supporters cite his renunciation of his past and his efforts to curtail gang violence, including a series of children’s books he co-wrote in prison.

His lawyers had asked that the execution date be set for Dec. 22, a nine-day delay. The Dec. 13 date means they have only until Nov. 8 to submit a clemency request to the governor. The
U.S. Supreme Court declined to consider Williams’ case earlier this month.

“This case has taken over 24 years to get to this point,” Superior Court Judge William R. Pounders said. “That is a long delay in itself and I would hate to add to that delay.”

24 Years…..

The California legal system is a disgrace.

Williams, 53, was sentenced to death in 1981 for fatally shooting Albert Owens, a Whittier convenience store worker, in 1979. He also was convicted of killing two Los Angeles motel owners and their daughter during a robbery that same year.

The U.S. Supreme Court turned aside his case earlier this month.

Williams and a high school friend started the Crips street gang in Los Angeles in 1971.

Supporters have nominated him for the Nobel Peace Prize and the Nobel in literature, and a cable TV movie of his life last year starred Oscar-winner Jamie Foxx. Dozens of death penalty opponents demonstrated outside the courtroom. Among them was actor Mike Farrell, who said the proceedings failed to consider “his value, his change, his transformation.”

If there is going to be a death penalty – which the voters of California have approved – at least administer it fairly and quickly.

Williams must be brought to justice. He has been convicted of killing four people.

And who were the MORONS who nominated this convicted murderer for Noble Prizes?

  1. Just shoot me in the head right now. I have seen and heard enough. Brother Tookie was and is a murderous killer who lost no sleep over killing four people. Where are these Hollywood artsy-fartsy idiots like Mike Farrell and Bianca Jager who cry knowing Took will die, who bleed out the eyeballs for our man Tookie? All they have to do is read the accounts of his wasted life to realize that this guy is a vicious con and will always be a con. Are these celebrities missing half their brain? Of course he denies killing those people. What did you think he was going to say? Even though the evidence was enough so that a mixed race jury had no trouble deciding his guilt, there are still people out there who think his conviction was race motivated. What about Tookie’s first victim being white? Could we not say that murder was race motivated? I’m certainly not the sharpest knife in the drawer, but it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to realize that this guy(not a MAN) is guilty and needs to go away. In fact I don’t even want him breathing the same air. The world will be better off with him gone. The real tragedy in this is that he is 50 plus years old and will be leaving this world having done more harm than good. Truly a wasted life. Don’t think I’m extending him any sympathy, my heart goes to the victims and their families.

  2. Despite the outcome and it looks grim for Took no-one will ever “win”. The facts are that four people died and someone has to be seen to be taking the blame. The powers that be only want to be seen to be doing the right thing regardless of whether or not it’s right. It’s a sad day when someone who has made contributions like Took is going to be killed strapped to a gurney. It brings tears to my eyes!

  3. This is in response to Ron Rook- How can you be so sure this guy is guilty? He was pretty much convicted based on circumstantial evidence and his reputation as a co-founder of the crips. Not that I am saying that he is necessarily innocent in his other dealings, but I do believe that he was entitled to a fair trial (which he was denied)and that justice should not be determined on past actions or his reputation. The fact that you see no value in his life is quite scary to me. I would never ever want to be on a jury with you- I disagree with people who rejoice at sending a person, whatever they may have done, to death. Do you not realize that what is done to Took or anyone else on death row, affects us as a society? What kind of society extinguishes problems instead of trying to solve them? My sympathies go out to the family of those killed, yes, but I do not rejoice or take pleasure in the government’s vigilante style of justice. Guilty or innocent, please don’t forget the humanity of those on death row. They have friends, family, and problems just like you and I do. If you took a chance to really see them, I doubt you would be so focused on killing them off. There are holes in the system, my friend. It is not impossible that you may end up there yourself, convicted of a crime you did not commit becuase they were able to get some eyewitnesses, tarnish your reputation, and stack the jury. Should that happen, what would you do? Claim your innocence? If so, you should hope there aren’t too many people out there with sentiments like the ones you posted.

  4. All you people that believe death is a good judgment, you are out of your minds. Maybe Stan did it, maybe he didn’t. You don’t know any more than I do. That governor did it for politics, and everyone knows it. So, Ron, are you really sure it wasn’t race motivated The dumb-ass court system let a fucking rapist muderer, as well as two thieving murderers (three white people) go free, so they could murder one black MAN last night. You should never think of anyone as less than a man; at least give Tookie that, since you won’t give him credit for ANYTHING HE TRIED TO ACCOMPLISH. So what if his son killed someone. If your father abandoned you and just came by to screw your mother, would you listen to him. You people must have some personal issues or be on some kind of drug to think that it is okay to kill someone FOR ANY REASON. I bet some of you same people wanted to keep bombers, rapists, killers and everyone piece of trash out there alive. HELL, YEAH, I BELIEVE THE STATE KILLED AN INNOCENT MAN LAST NIGHT.

  5. I live in Jamaica, where about 80% of crimes are never solved.. and i watched the news and log on the net and read about all these people trying to save this man’s (tookie) life.. i want to know if anyone of these people mainly the celebrities can tell us one of the victims name.. just ONE.. everyone is so caught up with what he is doing now.. everyone begging not to kill him.. trying to reach our conscience, something inside us that might say ok.. even though he was convicted and sentence to death lets not kill him.. but what about those 4 people i am almost certain they begged for their lives too before the pulled the trigger.. what happen to his conscience then, he showed no regard for those people so why does he expect to be treated any differently. the bible says and eye for an eye..

  6. Before I start, I would like to urge everyone to please form intelligent arguments before you click to submit. As a young Black man, I do not appreciate my race being disrespected, or fellow blacks sending messages that make us appear as the ignorant “kaffirs” most whites perceive us to be.
    Over the last few weeks, I have read a barrage of media articles and other publications regarding Mr. Williams and other things. I, along with several others have had time to form OPINIONS and SPECULATIONS, biased or otherwise, about what they think happened that night in 1979. First, Mr. Williams said that to give inside information about the Crips organization would be “snitching”. Well, you have to understand that at first, the purpose of the Crips was to feel safe in their own neighborhood. A lot of what occurs now is a result of the younger guys. As far as snitching goes, in Mr. Williams’ neighborhood, they live by a strict code, and tattling, or “snitching” is a heinous crime in the Black ‘hoods, mostly punishable by death. So, why save your life to have it taken by one of your own. As good as prisoner segregation may be, I bet someone would take you out over time. NONE of you know if Mr. Williams personally killed all four people, so stop trashing the man. All you know is what you have been fed. Only those people killed, Mr. Williams, and God Almighty know what happened at those places. If he did, in fact, murder those people, then it is a slap in the face to the Black race, and his supporters; as well, it goes to show MAINSTREAM White America (that means to subtract the White people that want to be and try to act Black) how ignorant the African-American race is. If he did commit those robberies, he only made enough to get by for a few days. Maybe it was a lot of money in ’79, but today, you could make that amount of money in one paycheck at a fast-food restaurant.
    However, America has gave so much focus to Mr. Williams’ fate that it has lost sight of what is going on in society. Homosexuality is gradually taking over, and that will be the beginning of the end. Sexually-transmitted disease are at an all-time high, mainly because of these queers, as well as undercover queers, who pretend to love women, but will either bend a man over, or will “drop the soap” more than some inmates do. There are countries waiting for the chance to blow us off the face of the earth. People are murdered every day, and now, the founder of an anti-social black organiztion “kills” someone and he is rushed to death, no matter how long it took to actually carry out the sentence.Many of our young men are doomed to die young because they are going to fight so you can have this very right to be fighting over such trivial matters as this.You people disrespect him, and then he is immortalized. What is he is posthumously found innocent? Uh-Oh. Not to compare him to Jesus, but you crucified him, AND THEN YOU LIFTED HIM UP. It may take a while for those of you with two-digit IQ’s to comprehend that.
    In closing, you do know what happened, let the ultimate judge handle this case. Other races, do not disrespect my race anymore than they disrespect themselves daily. This is not slavery or the days of the Klan. A lot of you people claim to be Christians, but then you curse more than drunken sailors, and you seek to shed more blood than some of the gangs you despise.
