Death Row Celebrity Confessed, Plotted Deputy-Killing Escape (Tookie Williams Scumbag Alert)
Worldnetdaily.com ^ | 11/29/05 | Joseph Farah

Posted on 11/29/2005 11:17:14 PM PST by goldstategop

The convicted quadruple murderer who founded the notorious Crips street gang has mobilized Hollywood celebrities in a bid to avert execution next month. This, despite admitting his crimes to others, the eyewitness accounts of accomplices, and jailhouse plots to escape by killing two sheriff's deputies and, later, one of those who testified against him.

Stanley "Tookie" Williams is scheduled to be executed Dec. 13 by lethal injection but is appealing to California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger for clemency, with the help of celebrities such as Snoop Dogg, Jesse Jackson, Desmond Tutu, Harry Belafonte, Russell Crowe, actor Mike Farrell, Academy Award-winner Jamie Foxx and former model Bianca Jagger.

But a review by WND of the Los Angeles County district attorney's response to the petition for clemency provides a glimpse of the evidence against the nominee for a Nobel Peace Prize.

Williams, 51, was convicted of the 1979 murders of Tsai-Shai Yang, Yen-I Yang, Yee-Chen Lin and Albert Owens in two separate robberies. Imprisoned since 1981, he is asking Schwarzenegger to grant him clemency because he says he has earned redemption through the writing of children's books.

"Stanley Williams does not deserve this mercy," said the DA's report to the governor. "In fact, despite the overwhelming nature of the evidence against him, and despite the non-existence of any credible defense, Stanley Williams has steadfastly refused to take any responsibility for the brutal, destructive, and murderous acts he committed. Without such responsibility, there can be no redemption, there can be no atonement, and there should be no mercy."

Though Williams has steadfastly denied committing the four murders, the DA's report says he admitted the crimes to the following people:

James Garrett, a man with whom Williams lived most of the time before and after the murders were committed. The DA says Garrett possessed specific details of the crime and that Williams threatened to kill one of his accomplices, Alfred Coward.

Ester Garrett, the wife of James Garrett, who said Williams characterized the Taiwanese motel owners murdered in one of the robberies as "Buddhaheads." She said Williams also admitted killing another "white dude" for $63 and indicated he was also considering killing Coward.

Coward, one of Williams' accomplices, testified that Williams laughed about the murder of Owens. "You should have heard the way he sounded when I shot him," Coward recalled Williams saying. He followed this statement with growling noises.

Tony Sims, another accomplice did not testify in the Williams' case because he was not offered immunity. But his sworn testimony in his own trial, in which he received a life sentence, corroborated the account of Coward. In subsequent parole hearings over the last 26 years, his account of Williams' execution-style murders of the victims has never changed. In addition, the DA report says Williams implicated himself in the murders at the motel by telling deputies after his arrest that five shots were fired.

"Williams, in a moment of mistaken candor, provided detectives with information only the killer would know," the report says. "Moreover, he repeated that knowledge twice. When confronted with this apparent knowledge, Williams against acting as the guilty party, retracted the statements and denied saying what he had just been heard to say. These statements and Williams' immediate retraction of them are admissions to the Brookhaven (Motel) murders. Williams knew five shots were fired because it was Williams who pulled the trigger each of those five times."

The DA report also contains revelations about a plot by Williams to escape from the Los Angeles County Jail, killing two deputies in the process and then murdering Coward.

That plan was disclosed by fellow inmate George Oglesby, who provided handwritten notes and detailed maps. Two armed people on the outside were to aid the plan, which involved blowing up a prisoner transport bus with dynamite to delay identification of who escaped.

In one of those notes, Williams wrote that Coward was a "heartbeat away from death." Oglesby said Williams planned to kill Coward because he was a witness against him.

While Williams' celebrity cheerleaders have claimed he has been a model prisoner throughout his sentence and have pointed to this as evidence of his rehabilitation, the DA's report contains 11 examples of incidents for which he was disciplined, beginning in 1981 and continuing through 1993. They include:

a violent fight with another inmate June 30, 1981, in which he repeatedly struck the prisoner while kneeling over him;

a refusal to line up for a return to his cell Jan. 26, 1982, in which he threatened a guard;

throwing a chemical substance in the eyes of a guard Jan. 28, 1982, in an attack that resulted in chemical burns and emergency treatment;

a second attack on a guard with a chemical substance Jan. 29, 1982;

an attack on another inmate Feb. 16, 1984, in which Williams only stopped beating the prisoner when a warning shot was fired;

a threat to kill a guard June 8, 1984;

the beating of another inmate July 4, 1986 that only ceased when armed officers arrived on the scene;

another fight with an inmate that led to his own stabbing, reportedly retaliation for his ordering another inmate to be stabbed;

his continued association with the Crips street gang led to administrative segregation Oct. 19, 1988;

the beating of another inmate Dec. 24, 1991, that only stopped after a warning shot was fired;

another fight with other inmates July 6, 1993, in which a stabbing instrument (shank) was recovered. The DA's report also says Williams threatened all of the jurors after they found him guilty.

"Specifically, the defendant looked at the jurors and said he 'was going to get all' of them," said the report. "After learning of this threat, the trial judge inquired of the jury foreperson. The foreperson confirmed the defendant mouthed the words 'I'm going to get each and every one of you m-----f------."

The DA also points out that Williams has steadfastly refused to be debriefed about his in-depth knowledge of the Crips street gang.

"This gang is responsible for the regular commission of crimes such as murder, rape, robbery and drug sales," says the report. "The gang has taken over large areas of many of our communities. As a result, hard-working, law-abiding citizens are forced to live in daily fear that gang members might take their lives."

In 2004, the city of Los Angeles alone, gang crimes accounted for 291 homicides, 717 attempted homicides, 2,616 felony assaults, 61 attacks on police officers, 2,308 robberies, 44 kidnappings, 36 rapes, 754 acts of witness intimidation, 20 acts of extortion and 188 carjackings.

"Although Stanley Williams is not directly responsible for every gang crime committed today, he was an integral founding member of a gang that has contributed, and continues to contribute, to the gang problem with devastating force," says the report. "This plague on our society continues to spread, and continues to take lives on a daily basis. Williams unleashed this violence in no less a manner than if he had released a deadly virus into our communities."

Williams' lawyers are reportedly trying to secure a meeting with Schwarzenegger in their bid for clemency.

This scumbag, piece of human filth and quadruple murderer had planned to kill cops in a jailhouse break bid. Yeah, Tookie Williams has excellent character. No wonder the murderer-loving crowd is calling for compassion for this sick soul.

This scumbag piece of murderous human waste needs to die TODAY (he's already lived about 24 more years too long) and as far as I'm concerned, he can take Snoop Dogg, Jesse Jackson, Desmond Tutu, Harry Belafonte, Russell Crowe, actor Mike Farrell, Academy Award-winner Jamie Foxx and former model Bianca Jagger with him for company since they love this POS so much.

At the same time, each and every one of the "celebrities" mentioned would support killing unborn babies. Liberal mindset: Kill the babies, spare the murderers.

I am very disappointed in the Governor for even considering clemency in this case. Law enforcement and the judicial community are united in their demand that he be executed.

Message to Arnold: These Hollywood types will never vote for you, never accept you again, never be true friends again. They snicker at you behind your back at how gullible you must be to even consider this request. Do the right thing, execute this thug and move on. People respect a leader who makes the tough decisions and sticks with those decisions, not a wet dishrag who is all over the board. In this case, the decision is easy.

Snoop Dogg is a Crip, so that doesn't surprise me.

And if they'll lobby for the release of cop-killer Mumia, they lobby for anyone. It wouldn't surprise me if some of this crew call for clemency for bin Laden, if we catch him alive.

If the soldier that captures bin Ladin has any sense at all, Osama will be die during his "capture".

Look at the ongoing Saddam Hussein trial farce as an reason to do the expedient thing.

Wonder how many anonymous marriage proposals he's got from the usual suspects of jailhouse groupies?

It disgusts me how society has rewarded that piece of crap "Snoop Dog".

Not to mention what he's done to the English language.

he is asking Schwarzenegger to grant him clemency because he says he has earned redemption through the writing of children's books.

What children's books did he write? Little Johnny Murders Jane? The Kindergarten Chain Saw Massacre? If that ploy works, you'll see every bookstore in the country stocked with an entire section of kid books written by death row inmates.

Tookie got run over by a gurney...that had come to take him for his shot
It looks like he may have a concussion...outside the prison Snoop Dogg's really hot

Tookie co-founded the Crips gang...parts of cities they've destroyed
He's nominated for a Peace Prize...but this year he won't be opening his toys

They say he writes books for children...death would be a tragic loss

When I saw that in the paper...the whole lunch I just had eaten I had tossed

Tookie got run over by a gurney...that had come to take him for his shot
It looks like he may have a concussion...outside the prison Snoop Dogg's really hot

He has fans who threaten riots...they'll cause trouble everywhere
And if your town should start erupting...there's a good chance you'll find Maxine Waters there

For the Texas/USC game...he has tickets...oh, how sad
He won't be there to attend it...he should sell them quickly with an e-Bay ad

Tookie got run over by a gurney...that had come to take him for his shot
It looks like he may have a concussion...outside the prison Snoop Dogg's really hot This year he will miss the eggnog...chestnuts roasting on the fire
And in his death cell he's been screaming...he is claiming that George Bush has been a liar

Children, here is Tookie's lesson...if you murder, you must know
That someday they're gonna catch you...and inside your veins the chemicals will flow

Tookie got run over by a gurney...that had come to take him for his shot
It looks like he may have a concussion...outside the prison Snoop Dogg's really hot

Tookie got run over by a gurney...that had come to take him for his shot
It looks like he may have a concussion...outside the prison Snoop Dogg's really hot

Gov. Schwarzenegger will absolve this death penalty, however unwarranted that decision may be. He will make his decision based on body politic and nothing else- it will not be his conscience. I fully support pro-life and truly despise the death penalty. My morals dictate that children have no choice, from conception to birth. If such is so- then after that, we reap the harvest, no matter what happens. How can we match punishment with a horrible crime? When on the outset, life punishes everyone- kindly or unkindly. Myself, I've experienced both in hard degrees. Killed in War- yes. Killed by civil crime- no, although it is extremely hard to answer the difference at times. Regardless, if we don't kill the bastards before capture- it is not human to kill them by our little court functions. None of us is getting out of here alive. Resign them to prison for the rest of their days and let G-d handle the long run.

Did you see that commerical he did with Lee Iacocca? I saw that commercial at least seven times and I still couldn't understand anything Snoop was saying. Very poor marketing technique by Chrysler.

But Tookie himself believes in the death penalty. He carried it out four times.
