Demonstrators opposed to the death penalty are seen at the start of a 25-mile march to San Quentin Prison a day before the scheduled execution of convicted killer and Crips gang co-founder Stanley 'Tookie' Williams in San Francisco, December 12, 2005. (Lou Dematteis/Reuters)

Tough for me to make fun of these protesters. The death penalty is a difficult issue about which reasonable people might disagree.

That woman in front looks suspiciously like the crying woman with the sign when it was announced there wouldn't be a recount in the 2004 election.

These are not necessarily Tookie supporters as much as they are anti-death penalty. There is a significant distinction that should be made.

Though I disgree, I respect the point of view of those that are against the death penalty, but anyone out there on the "Free Tookie" platform, well those are the people without a platform.

Sigh could just as easily said, "Walk for Abortion", and that woman would be fine with the death penalty for the infant.

I concur. Regardless of what he did, I don't think it is right to laugh and celebrate the death of anybody.

New sign for the protestors.

The Crips (gang) have only killed one thousand or more people, as long as it wasn't someone in my family, it's none of our business.

They are living evidence of too much wealth and freedom. But that's their choice, to abuse all of their blessings and make others suffer for it.

More simply, they are Enablers - the enemy within.

Could be -- I think these people just go from one "protest march" to another. They don't work, so there must be money in being a "rent-a-protester!"

Straight from their last march (an hour earlier), these innovative protesters use two-sided signs. The reverse of the signs displayed:

Front: "Walk for Abolition - End the Death Penalty"
Back: "Abortion is a Woman's Choice"

Front: "Executions Teach Vengeance and Violence"
Back: "Islam is a Religion of Peace"

Front: "Execute Justice, Not People"
Back: "Support the Iraqi Resistance

Ironic that one of the murders was described in the press as an "execution style" killing.

Where in America are people executed by shooting them in the back of the head? Only among mobsters and KKK-type racists.

But let's look at that word "execution":
"The act or an instance of putting to death or being put to death as a lawful penalty."

The media is lying to us again. Tookie murdered someone. There were no "execution stylings" involved. To equate the two is to blur distinctions.

Do people who oppose the death penalty also oppose the use of deadly force in defending one's family and/or property?

If it's anything like the Catholic Church (anti-capital punishment), then they're extremely pro-life as well.

Self-defense is not unethical.

And despite their efforts to keep guns off the streets, Tookie's gang got some heavy duty firepower. Criminals will get guns if they want them. No need to call EVERYONE who has a gun a "criminal".

I've seen a Catholic site that at some point referenced this group and a pro-life abortion argument but the google cache no longer exists.

I could not find a one-stop shop for "walk for abolition". No single site so no FAQ to read about their views.

That same reasonable person that disagrees would want to throw the switch when it was one of their own murdered.

Societies owe convicted murderers nothing, except a swift, merciful execution.
