Ken Masugi, fellow Bear Flag League member and blogger extraordinaire with the Clairmont Institute has directed Flap to this piece by Patricia Morrison of the Los Angeles Times and Dog Trainer.
After reading Morrison’s blue vs red state comparison tripe and failing to give proper treatment of the victims of William’s murderous escapades, Flap prefers to refer the reader to Masugi’s comments:
Patt Morrison pleads for Tookie Williams’ life. Letting Williams die, she sighs, “would placate the state’s broad law-and-order voting base.” Morrison expects more of Schwarzenegger. But justice for Williams (she somehow never mentions his conviction for four murders, though his books are duly noted) is not a matter of placating voting bases. The death penalty assures society that heinous murders are taken with utmost seriousness, that justice requires vengeance and the compensation that only an act of a just political community can demand. (Otherwise we are left with vigilantism.) Those who commit heinous crimes must forfeit their lives if any sense of decency, of justice, is to exist on earth. To rely solely on divine justice is to destroy human justice, which in turn leads to the mockery of divine justice.
UPDATE: Does Williams still guide the Crips, a gang he founded, from his prison?
Flap is a little more direct……..Williams must be brought to justice for the murder of four people….
