Kill, ask forgiveness, go free

Jamie Foxx, Bianca Jagger and other 'celebrities' want us to believe that Tookie Williams is reformed. They believe he should not be executed for the murder of "Albert Owens, a 7-Eleven clerk in Whittier, Calif., and three members of the Yang family — Yen-I Yang, Tsai-Shai Yang, and their daughter, Yee-Chen Lin — at the Brookhaven Motel in Los Angeles."

After all, Tookie has written a series of books aimed at convincing youths to avoid gangs.

Jeff Jacoby of the Boston Globe points out this (Misplaced sympathy for killers):
"As cofounder of the deadly Crips street gang in 1971, Williams's criminal legacy goes well beyond the four murders for which he was convicted. The gang violence he unleashed 34 years ago has destroyed thousands of lives and left countless other victims scarred by rape, assault, and armed robbery. Though he now claims to have reformed and has written books with an antigang message, he has never admitted his guilt or expressed any remorse for the slaughter of Albert Owens and the Yang family. If his supposed contrition amounts to anything more than lip service, he has yet to prove it. Williams adamantly refuses to be debriefed by police about the Crips and their operations or to provide any information that could help bring other killers to justice. In fact, officials at San Quentin have said he continues to orchestrate gang activity from behind bars."
Jamie Foxx and Snoop Dog carry no credence with me. Ask the victims families what they want.
