Stanley “Tookie” Williams Watch: California Supreme Court Refuses Stay

DEATH CHAMBER: The lethal injection table at San Quentin. The identity of the person who inserts the poison is not revealed.

The ASSociated Press has Calif. High Court Refuses Williams’ Stay

The state Supreme Court late Sunday refused to grant a stay of execution for gang member and convicted killer Stanley Tookie Williams, meaning Williams will be executed early Tuesday unless the governor grants clemency or a last-ditch federal appeal succeeds. Williams’ supporters made another pitch to save his life earlier Sunday, telling Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger’s staff that they had a new witness who could help prove Williams’ innocence.

“All we need now is time to investigate to make sure this story is real,” said NAACP California President Alice Huffman. “We’re hoping and praying for clemency, but we’re not going to leave any stone unturned.”

The new witness’s statements were sent to Schwarzenegger’s office, where the staff said the governor wouldn’t announce his decision on the clemency request before Monday.

Williams, 51, is scheduled for execution at 12:01 a.m. Tuesday for the deaths of four people in 1979. He would be the 12th inmate executed by the state since California reinstated the death penalty in 1977.

The state’s high court ruled 6-0 against staying the execution, saying Williams’ last-minute appeal lacked merit and was untimely. Deputy Attorney General Lisa Brault had implored the justices early Sunday to dismiss his petition, writing that it “is without merit and is manifestly designed for delay.”

The justices earlier denied a defense request to reopen the case over allegations that shoddy forensics linked a weapon used in three of the 1979 murders to a shotgun registered to Williams.

Well , it is up to the Federal Courts or the Governor…….

Stay tuned…….

  1. Such a nice picture of Tookie…The only thing missing is the HALO.

    How ’bout some images of the crime scenes this maniac serial killer is responsible for?

  2. Thank-you…

    This is the piece of the story, DP opponents would rather brush aside…Let’s not forget what this is REALLY about.

  3. I WOULD LIKE TO SEE THE EXECUTION, LIVE. OR PAY PER VIEW. 26 YEARS OF INCARERATION AT THE AVERAGE COST OF $75K (+/-) A YEAR. PAID BY THE VICTEMS FAMILIES, AND THE FAMILIES OF THE CRIMES COMMITED BY THE “I’M SORRY I STARTED THE CRIPS” BUT HAS NEVER SHOWED TRUE REDEMPTIOM BY COOPERATING WITH LAW INFORCEMENT BY PROVIDING KEY PLAYERS AND TACTICS OR WARNINGS OF CRIMES TO BE COMMITTED. BULLSHIT. I CAN WRITE WRITE ANTI GANG BOOKS. AND DON’T HAVE TO START A GANG TO DO IT. NOR GET CONVICTED OF MULTIPLE MURDERS TO DO SO. OK, HOW THIS FOR AN ANTI GANG STORY: DON’T BECOME A GANG MEMBER OR YOU WILL BE EXECUTED FOR YOU CRIMES! WE “PUT TO SLEEP” STRAY/WILD ANIMALS THAT TERRORIZE OUR COMMUNITIES, YOU KNOW THE ONES. THEY DESTROY PROPERTY, ATTACK US AND OUR CHILDREN, MAKE US AFFRAID TO LEAVE THE SAFETY OF OUR HOMES. WELL WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THOSE ANIMALS AND THE GANG MEMBERS ON THE SAME STREETS?
    WE SEND THOUSANDS OF TROOPS THOUSANDS OF MILES TO COMBAT TERROR. GOING DOOR TO DOOR TO ROOT OUT AND KILL ALL WHO THREATEN THE AMERICAN WAY OF LIFE. I SAY BRING THEM HOME AND CLEAN OUR HOUSE FIRST. COMBAT THE DOMESTIC TERRORIST HERE FIRST. THE METH LABS, THE DRUG DEALERS, SEX OFFENDERS, THE ONES WITH MORE RIGHTS THAN THE COMMON CITIZEN. THIS NEEDS TO BE FIXED.
    THERE IS A DEFFINATE PROBLEM WHEN A LEVEL 1 CONVICT RECEIVES $25K(+/-) A YEAR OF TAX PAYERS DOLLARS AND THE AVERAGE K-12 KID RECEIVES LESS THAN $5K A YEAR FOR EDUCATION. BUT WE SAY “NO CHILD LEFT BEHIND”. HELL HOW CAN THEY EVER GET AHEAD.
    THOMAS JEFFERSON SAID WE NEED CIVIL WAR EVERY TWO HUNDRED YEARS OR SO TO CLEAN HOUSE. WE ARE OVER DUE. AND AS A FATHER I FEAR THAT MY CHILDERN MAY HAVE TO ENDURE SUCH DUE TO THE BLEEDING HEART LIBERIALS THAT HAS TURNED THIS NATION INTO AN ASSPIT. I DON’T THINK THE NEXT CIVIL WAR WILL BE ABOUT RACE. NOR WAS THE FIRST (READ YOUR HISTORY BOOKS) BUT ECONOMICS. THE RICH GETTING RICHER AND COUNTING ON THE POOR TO KILL OFF THE OTHER HALF OF THE POOR SO THE RICH CAN BENEFIT EVEN MORE. WOULDN’T BE A KICK IN THE ASS OF UNCLE SAM IF THIS ISSUE IS WHAT SPARKS THAT CIVIL WAR. DOESN’T MATTER IF HE LIVES OR DIES. PEOPLE ARE PISSED OFF AND THERE IS NO CLEAR ANSWER. KILL HIM AND RIOTS. DON’T KILL HIM RIOTS. AND IT SPREAD NATION WIDE. SOME THING TO THINK ABOUT.

  4. If Schwarzenegger grants Williams clemency, I think it will be time to mount an all out campaign against any future reelection as Governor or any other office.

    There is no excuse to let the lowest of the low killers like Williams go unpunished. And he’s had 24 years of measured justice to make his appeals. There is a time for everything, and it’s Stanley Williams’ time to die.

  5. One of the more salient arguments for Williams clemency involved the so called “children’s
    books” that he had written, in prison. His incarceration has led to, an obvious change in his perspective.

    If “Tookie,” is sincere about his writing, and is truly concerned about teaching today’s youth about gang violence, he should be advocating, not fighting, his execution.

    The “Tookie” lesson is simple, if you murder, get convicted, and sentenced to death,
    the final sentence of the “Tookie” Williams story would read, “may he rest in peace.”
