Fox is saying the Govinator will be speaking shortly, so I figured it was time to start a live thread for posterity.

For the record -- Fly the injection express Tookie!!!!!

He's going to get clemency. There's no way he's going to get on television with this kind of news if it's going to make his supporters unhappy... Maybe I'm wrong, but I'm guessing he would have made the decision, informed the warden, and released a simple statement to the press if the execution is going to go through...

1. It should be hard for our government to put a man to death.

2. It should be a sad day that we had to put a man to death, not a time to celebrate.

It is too easy, but it's just too expensive to keep this clown alive. They should have put him down years ago.

I wouldn't be surprised if he does. He's the governor of California after all and I don't think clemency costs him too much politically. If he was the governor of Texas this would be a slam dunk.

I can't believe Arnold would do that politically - even Bill Clinton fried that mentally retarded person before running for POTUS.

Why does he even need to make an "announcement" ? There should just be a press release, and not give this issue any more attention...

No, after due process, the government has the duty to carry out the sentence decided by a jury. It should be done quickly. 25 years is way beyond due process.

It should be a sad day that we had to put a man to death, not a time to celebrate.

Agreed. But far more sad for the four victims Tookie blew shotgun holes in.

If Arnold caves in to mob rule, he should at least have the decency to resign and appoint a Crips leader to take his place. If there is no more rule of law, at least be honest and admit you've surrendered to the swarm.

The tooker ain't a man.
That subhuman gave up manhood when he pulled the trigger and laughed about the sounds his victim made while dying.

He deserves to FRY in an electric chair imho.

Agreed. As a Catholic I do not support thre death penalty. The position of the Holy CHurch is clear on this. Even for an animal such as this. Put him on a chain gang and let him rot.

Going on television to announce "no clemency" might make sense if he also plans on begging for "calm" in gangland.

He would be making a political decision, if so. Not a moral one.

He'll commute. If he wasn't he'd send out a fax instead.

" It should be a sad day that we had to put a man to death, not a time to celebrate."

The only sadness I will feel, if he is indeed executed, is the fact that he will die a peacefule death with a needle, instead of what this animal truly deserves, the electric chair or gas chamber.

I'm thinking just the opposite. Lots of talk of violence if there isn't clemency so he feels he needs to get up and speak to the public to try and quell it.

As a Californian who voted him into office, I he gives Clemency to Tookie, he can forget getting my vote again. I am sick and tired of Rhino's - including GW.

I am against the death penalty but I am for due process and upholding the rule of law as written rather than adjudicated.

I will point out that it already is difficult for the government to put someone to death. It takes 10 years and the case goes into automatic appeal. This man has failed all appeals.

Like I said on another thread, think about all those vets who slept on park benches while Mr. Williams was getting his three squares and free med/legal.

Pretty disgusting, eh?

Where did you all hear that Arnold himself would be giving the news. It is my understanding that he would NOT be doing this himself.
