Snoop Dogg laments Williams' execution
Seven News ^ | December 21, 2005 | Peter Prengaman

Posted on 12/21/2005 3:30:08 AM PST by beaversmom

US celebrities and rights activists have lamented the execution of Stanley Tookie Williams at his funeral.

Hundreds of mourners came to the violence-wracked area of Los Angeles where Williams founded the murderous Crips gang three decades ago.

Under heavy police presence, a long line of people entered the 1,500-seat Bethel AME Church.

Vendors sold T-shirts with Williams' picture, and a large TV set up in the parking lot allowed the overflow crowd to watch the service.

Williams was executed on December 13 despite clemency pleas from celebrities and others who said he had rededicated his life to peace.

"It's nine-fifteen on twelve-thirteen and another black king will be taken from the scene," hip-hop star Snoop Dogg told mourners, reciting a poem about the execution.

The line "I don't believe Stan did it" drew wild applause in the parking lot.

Williams, 51, was put to death by injection at San Quentin Prison for the 1979 shotgun murders of a convenience store clerk and three motel owners.

"The war within me is over. I battled my demons and I was triumphant," Williams said in a recording played to mourners, whom he asked to spread a message to loved ones.

"Teach them how to avoid our destructive footsteps. Teach them to strive for higher education.

"Teach them to promote peace and teach them to focus on rebuilding the neighbourhoods that you, others and I helped to destroy."

The veteran civil rights campaigner Reverend Jesse Jackson decried the execution of Williams, who Jackson said saw himself in the end as a "healer, not a predator".

"Tookie is dead. We're not safer, we're not more secure, we're not more humane," Jackson said.

That attitude may have been the biggest factor in him failing to get clemency. Tookie did teach his followers something from jail, stupidity.

Speak for yourself and those you purport to represent Jesse Jacksoon.

I and my family are safer and more secure.

As for being more humane? Is it not "humane" to put a dog out of it's misery, as the state did to your boy, Tookie?


I thought so.

My understanding is that his refusal to inform on what he knows/knew about the Crips and their organization is the most significant reason for denying him clemency.

This is why I have no problem with his execution. If he truly had renounced the Crips and gangs, then what is the problem with informing on them. Until someone can explain (adequately) why someone deserves clemency who keeps information secret on individuals/organizations who he publicly renounces, I have no problem with the outcome.

A man of peace, does not withhold information that would end violence (by helping to disband the crips) and promote peace.

You all really, really do need to see zombies photos, videos, and commentary-- all of it, not just the unaptly-named Tookie files, but the others as well:


http://www.zombietime.com/tookie/
 (MUCH MORE TO COME SOON!)
 
 After a tense showdown, one of the Christian protesters was assaulted by a large group of Tookie supporters. Click here to see the action. (QuickTime mpeg video, 7.7mb) (Clicking on the link above -- and on all the similar links below -- will open a QuickTime video file in a new window. Below each link is an exact transcription of the speaker's words.)

Pro-Tookie protesters:
"Racist, sexist, anti-gay! Right-wing bigots, go away!" (Repeated many times.)
 (Later tonight I'll be posting more eye-popping pictures and videos of this ongoing showdown between the anti- and pro-Tookie forces.)


You may notice in some of the photos and video above one of the violent ISO members who intimidated the first anti-Tookie protester and then assaulted the Christian; he's depicted in the oval section of the photo above (a freezeframe from the video), a young man with a stubbly beard and a blue and yellow cap.
 
 Another fearless anti-Tookie protester refused to be intimidated by the crowd. Despite their attempts to drown him out and mute his bullhorn, he soldiered on (QuickTime mpeg video, 2.2mb):
 
Anti-Tookie protester: Tookie deserves the death penalty.
Pro-Tookie protesters: Right-wing bigots, go away!
ATP: Tookie deserves the death penalty. The wages of Tookie's [sin] are death.
PTP: Racist, sexist, anti-gay! Right-wing bigots, go away!
ATP: Quit being so liberal. You guys are making a murderer an icon!
PTP: Racist, sexist, anti-gay! Right-wing bigots, go away!
ATP: You're making [him] a hero, an icon. Something is wrong with this picture.
PTP: Racist, sexist, anti-gay! Right-wing bigots...

 

Queers for Palestine decided to branch out a little thematically by making a new banner. Those wacky queers -- they're always thinking up something to be for or against! 
 
And of course it wouldn't be a true protest without some comforting "9/11 cover-up" signs.

After I left, apparently, some anarchists burned an American flag outside the prison. I missed that glorious moment, but it was captured by an Associated Press photographer and included in the San Francisco Chronicle's coverage of the event.  
 
This software will play the above videos:

In particular, seek out the photos of the "dicks not death," "breasts not bombs," the Lesbian Masturbators, and The Scrotum Inflator.
Found here:

zombie Hall of Shame

No, I am not kidding and I aplogogize for the bluntness but that's what they call themselves.

You really need to see what sort of extremists, manipulators, frauds, and fakirs plague some parts of the US.

These disreputable charlatans use, abuse, and manipulate America's laws and hospitality- but they are no friends of America, or Americans.


Footnote:

Listen carefully to some of the chants featuring "Right-wing bigots, go away!" and you will hear "Born-Again Bigots," instead.

These characters don't seem to have much use for religious folks- just butchers.

Thanks for the link. The masturbation protestors seemed a little out of place but I guess it's all fair game at a stinky leftist shindig. What a freakin' mess! Michael Savage's line--"Liberalism is a Mental Disorder"--doesn't go far enough for these I don't know whats.

Thanks for looking- you really have to witness this junk with your own eyes, to really, really believe how bad it is. It is beyond grotesque- these "protesters" are vengeful, hate-filled, exibitionistic children in adult bodies-- sort of like "Lord of the Flies" meets "The Road Warrior..."

There is a dreary, oppressive sameness to all these lovefests, isn't there?

I sometimes wonder if there is a backlot somewhere in Hollywood for "dissaffected types" who mill about, waiting for the next bus to the next protest.

Savage has a good point- I'm old enough to remember when "those on the Left" were people like Hubert Humphrey, Scoop Jackson, or Pat Moynihan-- you could disagree about some points of policy, but they weren't enemies of America, or her citizens. The characters populating this, and other, protests are no friends of the West, or things most of us hold dear.

If he'd snitch on his gang members, they'd have murdered him also. By having the state do it (suicide bt cop) he became a martyr for their sick, twisted cause.

I've got a co-worker who was spouting the line about puting an innocent man to death. I soooooo wanted to refute her idiocy, but I didn't because I didn't want to cause a scene. (when she gets embarassed, she becomes loud and obnoxious.)

But I was able to convince the co-worker she was spouting off to to the real reasons why he's no longer breathing air. He actually believed me......

My late, first brother-in-law was like that-- always going to college in NYC, Paris, London, Seattle- and never graduating. He wanted to be the next F. Scott Fitzgerald, and surprisingly, he was a witty, talented writer-- but he only wrote stuff slamming his family, so naturally no larger audience was interested in his work.

Twas the night before Execution and all through San Quentin,

the crips were protesting, and liberals were ventin'.

The cyanide hung by the chamber with care,

in hopes that the reaper soon would be there.

The inmates were nestled all snug in their bed ;

except for Old Tookie, who soon would be dead.

And me with my beer mug, dressed warm in my flannel,

had curled up to watch it, on the Fox News Channel.

I set up my TIVO to record the news station,

and thoroughly loved the momentous occasion.

It seemed lady justice had gotten her way,

and that there would be one less savage today.

When outside the jail there arose such a clatter,

the cameras had turned to see what was the matter.

When what to my civilized eyes did appear,

but a lineup of actors, all liberal, half queer.

The misguided freaks drew some curious looks,

as they proclaimed his innocence; clutching his books.

The tears then flew out from Sarandon's eyes,

as she nominated him again for the Nobel Peace Prize.

The actors were tethered to an ACLU sleigh,

all towing the line of the urban decay.

On Asner, on Penn, on liberal cop-haters,

On Sharpton, on Jesse and other race-baiters.

Then at 3:01 all curled up like a beetle,

Tookie cried like a bitch as they gave him the needle.

When up from the actors there arose such a cry,

they had failed in their mission, and Tookie DID DIE !!

I heard Bill O'Reilly say, as I turned out my light,

Merry Christmas to all ... there was justice tonight !!

Nice work by Zombie.

In the comments sections of Little Green Footballs,

http://www.littlegreenfootballs.com/weblog/weblog.php
there is running speculationn over just who zombie really is, and some debate on whether "he's" a man or woman.

However that may be, zombie's pictures, videos, and commentary are what the laughably misnamed "watchdog press" are supposed to be supplying us with, and he deserves much appreciation.

We had a fellow here who was a POS, he raped a little girl about a mile down the road from the grocery store. He almost got lynched that night, but someone called the police.

He was arrested and found guilty, was serving a prison sentence when we learned he had died. Dont know what he died from . Anyway his family rented a hall and prepared food and other things for after his funeral. I did feel a bit sorry for his Aunt who spent the morning frying Chicken for those who came to the wake. She cooked a lot of chicken, but only 15 people showed up for the funeral. Family I think. A far cry from the professional race baiters like Jesse and Snoopy Doggy Dog,and the sightsee'rs
at Tookies funeral.

The line "I don't believe Stan did it" drew wild applause in the parking lot.

I guess if somebody is impervious to facts, they can think whatever they like. If Tookie did not do it, then his execution was wrong. But there is nobody, absolutely nobody, who has taken an objective look at the facts and concluded anything other than "Stan did it".

So this fellow is just misinformed. Aside from the fact that he seems determined to stay misinformed, I guess he is entitled to his opinion. It is the morons who will allow as to how Tookie killed all those people, but he deserved to be set free because he had ghost-written a couple of children's books that I just could not understand.

How many of those criminal loving scumbags could name even 1 or 2 of the victim's names I wonder?

I'm guess the number would be near 0. Jesse Jackass couldn't name even of tookie's victims.
