What a weenie

State court rejects Williams’ request for stay

SAN FRANCISCO - 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.

And let me get my first fungulos out of the way for the day (if that's all right with you?) Fook the Associated Press:

He was condemned for the murder of a man during a robbery in February 1979 and the slayings of a couple and their daughter at a South Los Angeles motel the following month.

No he was convicted, now as a result of those convictions, he is condemned (to die).

has apologized for founding the Crips

No ..... he was a participant in the Crips gang after his conviction and incarceration (is this a great country or what?). And never lifted a finger to help destroy it.

And lastly (firstly?): a stay of execution for gang member and convicted killer. Having been/being a gang member isn't why he now gets to taste the state's punishment. He callously brutally murdered four human beings. He is an unrepentant killer. The convited killer part is not a secondary rejoinder. It is the all, the everything.

Roto Reuter plays the same game: "condemned Crips gang leader Stanley Tookie Williams"


Addendum; 12:56 p.m.

Evil is. Unfortunate, yes. That does not change the truth, that it exists. WARNING EXTREME GRAPHIC CONTENT. I recommend NO ONE click on this link. None of ya. The damage wrought upon the lives taken by Tookie Williams is a horror for which he has been convicted. And for which, at 12:01 a.m. this evening. He will perish from this earth.

"These are the grisly crime scene and autopsy photos released by the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office in the case of convicted quadruple murderer and coward Tookie Williams."

Schwarzenegger Denies Clemency for Williams 1:12 p.m.

"After studying the evidence, searching the history, listening to the arguments and wrestling with the profound consequences, I could find no justification for granting clemency," Schwarzenegger said, less than 12 hours before the execution. "The facts do not justify overturning the jury's verdict."

1:36 p.m.

And .... just in case you forgot? A little reminder. It is always Bush's fault. All the time. Everything. "join us to raise our voices against the Republican death machine."

Well of course, I also have to show my tender side. The shiny happy flower person side (cue Stipe/REM). "Tookie Williams: do you think he's going order steak or chicken for his last dinner?" Via Pyjamas Media at http://opensoremedia.org/blog/

Addendum; 4:12 p.m.

I'm at a complete loss to explain this one? It's just plain foogin weird. Doesn't make it any less welcome. Of course, I could see what these cats have been up to in the past first? Before expressing any surprise. Still ..... just go ahead and read it.
