Tookie is dead
Schwarzenegger denied him celemncy and now Tookie has been executed. Despite the media hoopla, the nobel prize nomination and the Jamie Foxx film, I find it hard to feel bad for the person who co-founded the crips and killed 4 people in person in cold blood and then laughed about the dying sounds one of the victims made in court. However, some people seem to have a different opinion: About 1,000 death penalty supporters and opponents gathered outside the prison to await the execution. Singer Joan Baez, actor Mike Farrell and the Rev. Jesse Jackson were among the celebrities who protested the execution. "Tonight is planned, efficient, calculated, antiseptic, cold-blooded murder and I think everyone who is here is here to try to enlist the morality and soul of this country," said Baez who sang "Swing Low, Sweet Chariot" on a small plywood stage set up just outside the gates. Wow. So what about the 4 people he killed and all the lives destroyed because of the crips? Those factors don't enlist in the morality and soul of the country? What are those people smoking? Whatever..
