Tookie Delookie - UPDATE and Bump
UPDATE 12/12/05 13:01: Clemency Denied:
Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger refused to spare the life of Stanley Tookie Williams, the founder of the murderous Crips gang who awaited execution early Tuesday in a case that stirred debate over capital punishment and the possibility of redemption on death row. Williams, 51, is set to die by injection at San Quentin State Prison after midnight for murdering four people in two 1979 holdups.
...But I'll believe it when I believe it.
UPDATE 21:30: State Supreme Court denies stay of execution.
Is it just me?
According to the Associated Press,
A lawyer for convicted murderer Stanley Tookie Williams asked the state Supreme Court to stay his execution, saying the Crips gang co-founder should have been allowed to argue that someone else killed one of his four alleged victims. [Emphasis added]
The "one" victim AP refers to is Albert Lewis Owens, a clerk at a 7-Eleven that Tookie decided had too much money. Owens is not named in the AP story. Neither are Tookie Williams' other three murder victims: husband and wife Yen-I Yang and Tsai-Shai Chen Yang and their daughter, Yu-Chin Yang Lin. But this is hardly surprising... to quote an e-mail from my friend Lee Porter, who first called this to my attention:
The victims were not abstractions, they were people with their own lives and loved ones, and the murderer took what he was not entitled to take. Many writers and chatterers don't know, don't care, or don't bother to acknowledge the identity of the victim. I think this is a pathology in and of itself.
I agree, and I'll strive always to list the names of the victims whenever I write about heinous murders in the future (as I did in the previous "Tookie" Williams post, This Might Kill Capital Punishment): the murderers took their lives and future... it's up to the rest of us to protect their past, their memory, and most of all, their names.
Let me see if I understand "Tookie's" attorney's last-ditch point: she argues that one of the witnesses against Tookie Williams -- whose name, Alfred Coward, AP has no difficulty remembering -- was not a good guy himself:
Wefald's petition argues that prosecutors failed to disclose at trial that witness Alfred Coward was not a U.S. citizen and had a violent criminal history, depriving Williams of the opportunity to argue Coward was the killer in the February 1979 robbery.
Okay... but what about the murder of the Yang family eleven days later? What is Ms. Wefald actually arguing -- that the jury sentenced "Tookie" to death because Albert Owens was white... but that they wouldn't have sentenced him to death if he had only killed three Chinese? What a vile, racist argument that is.
And it's doubly absurd, because what AP fails to report is that Alfred Coward was a friend of "Tookie" Williams. He wasn't some unknown eyewitness whom "Tookie" had never seen and knew nothing about; he was "Tookie's" partner in the 7-Eleven robbery-murder. Does Wefald really expect us to believe that "Tookie" had no idea that Coward had a "violent criminal history" when he took him along to commit a robbery, which turned into a hate-crime murder? ("Tookie" later told his other partner, Tony Sims, that he killed Owens "because he was white and he ["Tookie"] was killing all white people.") "Tookie" Williams was well aware of Coward's violent past and had ample opportunity at trial to bring that out during cross examination.
Or does she make a different racist argument -- that the fact that really casts doubt on Coward's testimony against "Tookie," and makes Coward the more likely suspect in the killing, is that Coward wasn't an American citizen?
The "Tookie" worship engaged in by leftists, activists, and the Hollywood elite is simply despicable; and the more you read about his brutal murders -- here and here, for example, descriptions based upon actual testimony at trial and at parole hearings -- the more despicable it becomes.
Whether it's malign, homicidal thugs like Mumua or "Tookie" or raging surrender-monkeys like Sheehan, Murtha, and Kerry, the left-liberal movement has become known by the heroes it exalts. Let them boil in their own bile.
Oh, by the way; the total amount of money that the murders of four human beings netted Stanley "Tookie" Williams? $220.

Yes, he has big arms, and writes fantasy books. Still, he is a pussy, and now begs for his life. Sorry, Tookie Nookie, but your begging makes me puke.

If the rumors are true, I guess there'll be LA riots tomorrow like there were in 1992, that would include random race-based murder and looting by gangbangers. I hope it doesn't happen, but it certainly would be an "appropriate tribute" to the violent racist thieving life of Tookie Williams. Nothing would make Tookie happier, I'm sure. And I imagine nobody is more depressed today than Tookie's ghostwriter. There goes that income.
