THEY'RE JUST LOOKING FOR A EXCUSE, NOT A REASON.
The California Supreme Court has now had its last say in the case of murderer Tookie Williams. No stay of execution. It's now up to Governor Schwarzenegger. Tookie's supporters are pulling out all of the stops. Now they've even come up with a last-minute witness that can prove Tookie's innocence. Yeah, sure. Don't you just love those "last-minute witness" things?
Who is on Tookie's side here? Well, we have pretty much the normal cast of characters. We have the NAACP, of course, and we have actors and rappers. There's also the community "activists" singing out for Tookie. We also have a Swiss legislator and a pant-full of college professors. These professors have been repeatedly offering Tookie Williams as a candidate for the Nobel Peace Prize. No big deal there, the Nobel Peace Prize hasn't been about actual peace for decades. Now it's all about promoting the leftist agenda.
They call Tookie an "anti-gang crusader." Yet Tookie Williams would never cooperate with law enforcement in their efforts to bring the Crips gang, the gang he founded. He wouldn't disclose the names of gang members to the cops.
Tookie's Termination is scheduled for tomorrow afternoon. It won't happen. First, the federal courts are likely to grant a stay or two. After all, he was only sentenced about 24 years ago. What's the rush? Secondly, I believe that the main reason the execution of Tookie Williams won't be executed is because Schwarzenegger knows full well that as soon as Tookie's death is announced there will be riots in South Central Los Angeles and elsewhere. The huge media exploitation of this story has made drop-dead sure of that. There are thugs just waiting for an excuse ... not a reason, an excuse. The rioting, of course, will lead to wide scale looting. There are a lot of aspiring rappers and NBA superstars who could really use a nice flat-screen television right now.
Look for Arnold to give Tookie a pass.
Im betting Arnie lets Tookie get the needle.
If he caves, I imagine he can retire, "I'll be back."
Fine. Buy a little time for the cesspool that is California. With such brownshirt tactics in play, the time you buy will be very short indeed.
"Im betting Arnie lets Tookie get the needle."
This may be so but, according to Boortz, the feds may step in to save Tookie.
ASTA LA VISTA -- TOOKIE !!!
My money is on Arnold being the girlie man lib that he really is and surrendering to the gang extortion.
A TRUE life sentence should be harsh enough that the prisioner BEGS for the death sentence. Problem solved.
I think Arnold could send a powerful message to the youth of his state and this nation if he came on the TV at about 2:00 a.m. in his pajamas and said, "Oh mahn, I wanted to tink about da tookie weeyums ting a little bit lahnger, but I took a nahp unt my alahm clock didn't go off on time!! So kids, dis is the kind of thing that happens if you don't go to sleep early and get to your jahbs on time!!"
I think there will be a riot and looting if he dies...let alone some drive by's.....so get ready...
-Look for Arnold to give Tookie a pass.-
If Arnie was conservative, we wouldn't have to wonder.
I hope you're wrong, but unfortunately, odds are, you're correct. Guess we'll find out for certain soon enough.
I thought I read that he will be terminated at 12:01 AM. That is tonight, right?
Shouldn't that be: THERE JUST LOOKING FOUR A EXCUSE, NOT AN REASON? ;-)
Yep, the 9th Circuit still has to play its card and their record of doing sensible things isn't very strong.
Governator would NOT be back.
If he was as smart as his buddy, Jesse "The Body" Ventura, he would not try to run again and leave with dignity.
Right now I bet Tookie would out-poll him.
Either way, this would be his final mistake (letting Tookie pass).
He is good man and he did really well as Governor and delayed complete break-down in CA.
"The Body,s" down-fall was 5 Tele-vision apperances a day. Governator is going down because as soon as he stepped in the office, he started dreaming of Presidency.
Can you believe it, that he and his supporters actually ran advertisements to build support for constitutional ammendment so someone not born an American can become President.
And the fact that he picked a fight with Teacher's Union, also resulted in multi-million dollar campaign against him, that totally Newtered him (like in Newt Gingrich).
The fact that threats of racial mob violence and riots are even getting mentioned as being factored into this decision should be setting off alarm bells. When rule of law is replaced by mob rule, we are going to be in for a very rough ride.
"When rule of law is replaced by mob rule, we are going to be in for a very rough ride."
We will see. The "fear" of riots affecting justice is mob rule. We are already there, IMO. I will be surprized if Tookie dies. Pleased, but surprized.
Hard labor was replaced by cable TV.
Hang 'em High ~ Bump!
Look, I don't think many people realize what may be happening.
Stanley Williams is affiliated with very organized, very violent criminal gangs. You can bet the Governor of California has received some credible physical threats.
These are the same gangs that have no problem intimidating witness, or just killing witnesses. This has been done many times.
These organized murderous gangs would have no problem targeting the governor.
That being said, I would hope any threats directed at the Governor would not be a factor in his decision.
Not being nit-picky, but there's already been enough imprecise fact-slinging associated with this case (i.e., "no black jurors, etc.)
Nevertheless, being that unique type of coward known as a "social liberal," he will commute the sentence.
