Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger has denied clemency in the case of Crips gang creator Stanley "Tookie" Williams. This man deserves to die. Matter of fact this guy should have died shortly after the 4 people he killed in 1979. The fact that we have been paying to house this piece of human filth for nearly 26 years is a slap in the face to every law abiding citizens and to the victims families.
Tookie Williams is convicted of shooting a 26-year-old convenience store clerk in the back twice with a shotgun while he lay prone on the floor. He was also found guilty of shooting a Chinese immigrant couple and their daughter less than two weeks after the shooting at the convenience store. In the second attack it was for less than $100.
We have spent many numbers of $100 on keeping this vicious evil criminal alive.
"Stanley Williams insists he is innocent, and that he will not and should not apologize or otherwise atone for the murders of the four victims in this case," Schwarzenegger wrote "Without an apology and atonement for these senseless and brutal killings, there can be no redemption."
Tookie Williams will finally be put down at 12:01 AM Tuesday morning.
Schwarzenegger announced the decision shortly after a federal appeals court refused to block Williams' execution by lethal injection scheduled for shortly after midnight local time Monday.
Unless the full 9th Circuit or the U.S. Supreme Court intervenes, Williams is scheduled to die by injection at 12:01 a.m. Tuesday (3:01 a.m. ET) at San Quentin State Prison, near San Francisco.
Jesse Jackson and every other wacko who has tried to make this a racial issue of course have come out criticizing the Governor. To put race above even murder is despicable and should go as just another blot on the record of Jesse Jackson.

Who ever said that needs to go to hell because you got people killing more than 4 people and still killing and getting alway with it everday.
Tookie started something good but police turnted it around and made it negitve for him and everyone So if you wanna point the finger point it at your selfs because only people should be punished is you. Plus ya'll dont know shit about being BLACK and how we have to live everyday when you have people liking at you because we are black or we ware blue or red.
FUCK YOU ALL OF YOU.
Plus they didnt kill TOOKIE because of these 4 people the government can give two shits about them they killed TOOKIE WILLIAMS because they felt that he was a thret to the white community. So look up your facts before you start judging someone because of what you heard or what you see.
