Tookie and Other Irrelevant News of the Day...

Stanley "Tookie" Williams is the renowned Crips Gang leader now on death row and scheduled for execution, in fact this evening as I write this blog. Just who is "Tookie"?

His own web site describes him in a breif profile part of which is found here below:


Stan is a peacemaker on death row.

He has been nominated 5 times for the Nobel Peace Prize for his work in helping to prevent gang violence.

He has been nominated four times for the Nobel Literature Prize for his children's books that warn young people about the pitfalls of joining a gang and exposes them to alternatives.

He maintains innocence of the crimes he was accused of, and faced racist discrimination throughout his trial. One issue highlighted the fact that the prosecutor in Tookie's original case removed three African-American jurors from the jury. During Stan's trial, this prosecutor made racially-coded remarks during his closing argument, comparing Stan during the trial to a Bengal tiger in the zoo and stating that a black community - South Central Los Angeles - was equivalent to the natural "habitat" of a Bengal Tiger.

The U.S. Supreme Court ruled against Tookie on his final appeal and set his execution date for December 13. Thus they disregarded 9 of the 24 Ninth Circuit Court judges' assertion that the District Attorney at Tookie's trial employed "reprehensible and unconstitutional" racist tactics, using animal-in-a-jungle metaphors to refer to Tookie and to the South Central environment in which he lived. This landmark ruling means that minorities can now legally be rejected from juries based on race. This is now the law of the land.

So, forgetting that Stanley "Tookie" Williams was in fact found guilty of murder on several counts, and convicted by a jury...The Now Famous 9th District Court of The United States felt that his trial was unfair since he was compared to a Bengal tiger, considered as a racial remark made by the prosecution, during the trial.

Tookie has spent much of his time in prison writing books allegedly negotiating his redemption with God for some of his past antics during his days running with the Crips, his home boys. His books are supposed to support his claim that he is now engaged in saving other young fools from a Gang-Life.

I, Doctor Hormone am not going to pass judgement here on my's just too arrogant a thing to do...I just find it amazing that he has such a fan club of followers and that he has been nominated for Nobel Peace Prizes 5 times...Hmphphph!

He didnt murder just once...And according to records from his arrest and trial, he was ferocious and took great pleasure in the mercilous execution of those whos lives he took.

I dunno, maybe it just me, but somehow repititive murders in cold blood are not the deeds of one deserving a pardon or a book signing party, or a Nobel Peace Prize for writing about his remorse later in life.

Another website proclaims Tookies remorse in these words:

Tookie Today
Tookie greatly regrets the violent history of the Crips -- particularly how so many young black men have hurt each other -- and he wants to do what he can to stop it. The Tookie Speaks Out Against Gang Violence book series for elementary-school-age children is the first fruit of his longing to prevent young people of every color from becoming gangbangers, from ending up in prison, crippled by bullets, or killed.

Tookie is determined to make amends for having been a co-founder of the Crips. He intends to try in every way he can to guide those youngsters who have imitated him away from the road that led him to death row where he faces State execution. "Don't join a gang," he tells children in his books, writing from his San Quentin cell. "You won't find what you're looking for. All you will find is trouble, pain and sadness. I know. I did."

Now, my professional opinion:

Should mercy be shown?, Should clemency be offered?...should he get a retrial because he was referred to as a Bengal Tiger? I read his remorseful words about fearing for future gangbangers getting shot or jailed but where are the words of remorse for the victims of his crimes?

Tookie will best serve as a lesson for the struggling violent youths of the world today if his recent "Years of Encarcerated Enlightenment" are combined with a memorable "Martyrs Death" So that his powerful words will ring true for years to come:

"All you will find is trouble, pain and sadness. I know. I did."

Mercy? Naaaaa!

Instead, I think...The T-Shirt of the day should be this one...

And now, a little rap in honor of the fallen hero:

INTRO:(*mobster Corleone talking*)

Vision 88 kilos of cocaine smack-dead in your face
The street value of that is what you dream to make
Run an illegal business,racketeerin
Smugglin,doin things from handin a gun,is what they fearin
Bodyguards and hitmen like some Al Capone shit
Heavy artillery got the cops on my dick
Different locations,spots where it takes place
If you show them my money,your ass is gettin f-laid
There's four major games that run the city of G's
The violators,the Gambinos and the Corleones and me
The violators and Gambinos they run uptown
Me and my cousin Corleone we run downtown
Murder's an everyday thang in the city
Where you gotta plot chips,jag robberies and do in its
Tanadian Nay,the charge of the weapons
Hit from verandahs and do a thing unexpected
So we plan a plot with an Uzi and 10 shot
Buck em till they all drop,circle round the block
Let em have it as soon as they come out
Unload on their ass,commence to takin them out!

Pretty aint it? Makes you wish we had more chairs....

By the way, when I said I wasnt going to get judgemental in this blog?....I lied!

Well Doctor Hormone, I was concerned about you level headed reporting, for awhile at the beginning of this post, but you have restored my faith in your reporting skills as being totally biased and anti-anything!! ;-)

Well Done!!
