'Tookie' offered South Africa burial (Winnie Mandela offers to fulfil Tookie's final wish)

'Tookie' offered South Africa burial

From: Agence France-Presse From correspondents in Johannesburg
December 15, 2005

WINNIE Madikizela-Mandela has offered to help fulfil the final wish of executed former Los Angeles gang leader Stanley "Tookie" Williams and hold his burial in South Africa.

A spokesman for the flamboyant former wife of Nelson Mandela told the Afrikaans daily newspaper Beeld that Madikizela-Mandela will "honour her promise to see that Williams is buried in South Africa." Williams, who was found guilty of four killings but became an anti-violence crusader on death row and an author of several books, was executed in California yesterday by lethal injection.

Quoting Williams's former wife Bonny Williams-Taylor, the newspaper said it was the former gang leader's wish to be buried in South Africa.

He met Ms Madikizela-Mandela in 1996 and was "very impressed" with her, Ms Williams-Taylor said.

"She had huge influence on his life and it was his wish to be buried there (in South Africa)."

Wonder if they are thinking of kicking white coffins out of the SA cemetery to make room...

Yeah, as soon as I saw this I thought about Winnie's love for putting fire necklaces around her enemies. I guess she and Took are of the same mindset.

This is not about the death penalty, but about protecting a bunch of loser communistoid sinful fascists. Mark my words, they would have no trials to frag us...and this is what these condemning biggoted protests to "save" Tookie were all about.

That's what I was thinking. He contaminated our land enough in life. We don't need his offal seeping into our soil now that he's dead.

It is appropriate that the terrorist thug/thief would offer a burial place for the murdering thug.

I think Tookie deserves to be buried next to Nelson Mandela immediately. This of course would require the immediate demise of Mandela for his past evil deeds!!

Please, take him. Make sure you erect a huge stone with the eloquent etched words "Our Hero" Typical. He doesn't even deserve a cardboard box. Hollywierd will probably pay for it. Better check South Africa first, maybe they don't want him.

What a poseur. Why would you want to be buried in S.A. if you'd never set foot there in your life?

My feelings exactly, what in the world did I miss.
The next we will hear is that there should be a national holiday in honor of his birthday.

I would second that, he truly is a evil old man along with the fake Desmond Tutu, S.Africa had it's problems but he destroyed the country after he became president;they are both now living in the lap of luxury in Europe. I will never forget his vile anti-american rants, his smug disrespect of Dubya and his total silence when his thug supporters slaughtered innocent women,children and loyal farm hands who in the majority of the cases were like family.

Err... Only the MSM would characterize a murdering, thieving reprobate like this as 'Flamboyant'. Let her take Tookie so he'll be with his kind and they can spend eternity punishing each other.

I hope this lose doesn't go for any more news cycles.

On KCRA yesterday, the news reader actually said that Tookie helped the Doctor find a vein. From what I've read, he lifted his head and said something?? How is that translated to helped the doc find a vein.

I'm glad it's over.

You are right. If he followed her lead he could have murdered many more and had a catastrophic effect on his country.

Maybe the MSM meant to say flameboyant in describing the necklace queen.

Is Tookie's rapist drug dealer thug son still on the run? Maybe Winnie could offer him sanctuary.

I saw a report on FOX that said he was doing time for...."Drum roll"......Murder two at a location that I don't remember. Nice legacy.

I've always been a bit puzzled about why African-Americans identify with South Africa. Most African-Americans would be descendants of people from the Western coast of Africa, not the South. Africa is a huge continent - isn't this something like an American of Italian descent identifying himself with Norway? No offense meant to anyone, just wondering...
