'Tookie' offered South Africa burial

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)."
Necklace, necklace, necklace!
At least his carcass wont stink up American soil.
Please takie tookie. The wacko libs will have to travel a loooooong way to worship at his grave.
I say put him in an shopping cart and leave him behind one of the many crack houses he helped create.
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.
From one murderer to another, eh, Winnie?
To bad she was not an influence on his life before he murdered 4 people.
Well, he wasted our air and tax payer money, at least he won't be wasting our dirt.
He'll only need two pallbearers, 'cause a trashcan only has two handles.
She can have him. And she can pay for it as well.
It is appropriate that the terrorist thug/thief would offer a burial place for the murdering thug.
At least his DNA wont be polluting American soil.
