LOS ANGELES The Los Angeles Urban Policy Roundtables Earl Ofari Hutchinson and Jasmyne Cannick have issued a public challenge to controversial radio hosts John Kobylt and Ken Chiampou of the John and Ken Show of AM 640 KFI (Los Angeles) to prove that they are not promoting racial double standards when it comes to the death penalty.
The John and Ken Show dedicated the hour of 5 p.m. as Kill Tookie/Tookie Must Die Hour for over a month. During this time, KFI purposely followed around Black community activists, religious and civil rights leaders who were in support of clemency for Williams, with the sole intention of using their comments out of context and verbally abusing them on air for the entertainment of their listeners. John and Ken publicly denied there were any racial motives in their playing up death for Williams. But they have given no public hint that they will establish a Kill Clarence Ray Allen Hour. Allen, an elderly white inmate, is scheduled to die January 17 at San Quentin prison.
Cannick and Hutchinson, ask Can we expect to see John and Ken at San Quentin on January 16 broadcasting live again? While we strongly oppose the death penalty, the deafening silence of John and Ken on Allen strongly suggest their racial double standard for executions.
Meanwhile, John and Ken have even hinted that they will launch a new campaign for the death penalty for black activist Mumia Abu Jamal, formerly sentenced to death in Pennsylvania.
Community activists and leaders will closely monitor KFI to see if John and Ken continue their one-sided shrill attacks on death opponents when the condemned inmate is white. That will tell much about whether John and Ken are truly equal opportunity death penalty advocates or shock jock race baiters.
My curious question. If they were to do this it would be OK, but white folks doing this and well it becomes a national debate.
Frankly the same folks on either side should be just as passionate over the execution of Allen as they were for Williams.
He is responsible for the murder's of 3 people. Seems cut and dry to me.
Ping to ya.
Well there's no major call for clemency for Allen.
I swear, when I first read the headline, I thought it said that black leaders were attacking KFC.
There were victims, he has been on death row a long time, there needs to be justice. Seems simple to me.
A Glenn County jury found him guilty of three counts of first-degree murder with special circumstances and one county of conspiracy to murder in the slayings of 27-year-old Bryon Schletzwitz, 17-year-old Josephine Rocha, and 18-year-old Douglas White. The three were killed for either testifying or agreeing to testifying against Allen in the case that put him in Folsom. There he was serving a life term for murdering 17-year-old Mary Sue Kitts in 1974 because she knew of his involvement in a burglary. Allen has been on San Quentin's Death Row for 23 years.
Anyone listening to John and Ken simply need to recall the bullhorn used during Scott Peterson's trial to know the "black leaders" are haven't a clue.
J&K simply ratched up the show to match the nonsense from the anti-death penalty crowd.
Can we expect to see Jesse Jackson on January 16 at San Quentin?
Hutchinson is a radical leftist and hates whitey, so who cares what he says or does.
He's responsible for the murder of 4 people. I see no reason for KFI to play up this case unless it becomes a big leftie cause like Tookie was. However, it won't.
Let's see how many Hollywood celebs come out for the white guy.
If Tookie had written a book about the dangers of joining liberal movements, would the Hollywood crowd have come to his rescue.?
BTW, I hope J & K do get on the Mumia case - That's another one in need of assistance.
They just blasted back. LOL.
These feeble protests might gain strength should Jessie "The Racial Pimp" Jackson and his minions show up at the gates of San Quentin to protest the execution of Clarence Ray Jones. As the saying goes, "no publicity or face time here folks, lets move on".
Did you ever tune into the daily cannibalizing of the white murders, David Westerfield and Scott Peterson? No?
By the way, the are savagely going after Earl Ofari Hutchinson and Jasmyne Cannick now and the rest of these racist.
Hold the Phone. The same people who were trying to stop Tookie ,a blackman, from being executed ,now want the John and Ken show to come out supporting the killing of a White man. Who are the racists here?
Besides that there are no celebrities trying to stop the Allen Execution. Its pretty much a sure thing. Mike Farrell doesnt care how many White men are executed. He is just interested in the press and the headlines from supporting black killers like Tookie and Mumia. I am surprised they dont want Tookie to lie in State at the Capitol like Rosa Parks. After all Tookie wrote a 300 copy bestseller . Rosa just rode in the front seat of a bus.
Ken & John just summorized their response to the Round Table press release..."Go pound salt!"
Somehow I don't see the publicity being the same, and if it is I expect the same reaction from John and Ken.
I caught one segment of the show and they spent almost the entire hour talking to Black's who were in support of the execution because Tookie was a violent vicious thug, a man who gives decent law abiding Blacks a bad reputation.
I don't care if he's black, white, brown, red or polka-dot, if he is guilty, fry him. I don't make light of the death of one of God's creations, but, just is just, right is right, and retribution for sickeningly callous and despicable acts is justified. God hates the hand that sheds innocent blood.
These fools' voices will fade away long before the pain that those heartless fiends caused will fade from the hearts of those touched by their crimes.
Where is Jesse and the brothers and all the hollywierd commies when it comes to opposing the death penality for white guys? Who is the racist here?
I would wager that Ken and John would do the same if this white guy had a whole bunch of celebraties or whites lined up to oppose his execution like they did for Tookie.
I along with many others heard it too. This is really backfiring on these hardcore racist.
And this is what some of these so-called black leaders are all about. Pure and simple, they are racist to the point where they actually support a brutal, quadruple murderer, and criminal gang member.
I would only suggest the J&K arm themselves, if they haven't already, and provide protection for their families.
Personally I dont care what race a killer is I want them executed. Only waiting 25 years is way too long. Both of these pieces of trash should have been long gone.
By the way I read somewhere that Allen is to get open heart surgery before they execute him. Why are they wasting their money on that?
It turns out that they dont want to set a date for his execution because it might cause him to have a heart attack?
HUH? Lets get it on. Execute this turkey NOW.
"Cannick and Hutchinson, ask Can we expect to see John and Ken at San Quentin on January 16 broadcasting live again? While we strongly oppose the death penalty, the deafening silence of John and Ken on Allen strongly suggest their racial double standard for executions."
No you won't and I'll tell you why: black activists, Hollywood yahoos and liberal activists won't be marching to get a white man off the hook.
The satire about Tookie is to be expected, look at what a darling the Media drew him up to be! How many stories did we hear "The nobel prize nominated writer" as a start? The left is completely ASININE of course we're going to point it out.
And probably the biggest reason Tookie was such hero to so many freakoids was cause of his skin color. When was the last time death penalty activists tried to garner international support for a white guy?
that would never happen
The fact that leftists and the media are not clamoring for his life to be spared is the only reason they don't do it.
Ofcourse you are not for protecting white murderers from the death penality. You have nothing to prove to these race baiting, anti-death penality imposters. Unlike you these race baiters are not against the death penality - they are against the death penality for their favorite race. Otherwise they would be whinning against the death of a white convict. They are trying to get you to single out your race for death to prove to them you are worthy of air. In reality you are for the death penality for murderers regardless of race. Stop jumping through the hoops of left wing racists. /they are the ones concerned about race.
Sounds like a racial double standard to me.
