He can now say that since the CSC couldn't find any legal discrepancies he is obligated to side with justice as being written by law and judged by the jury of peers.

Or he could just say it's the right thing to do to a convicted, ruthless killer....

at least Arnold has an escape clause

Escape clause from what?

I can understand the feeling of because he's a Republican he doesn't have a spine but he is NOT going to spare the worthless life of Tookie....

"I thought he could still grant clemency. You're saying he can't. That's great news."

I'm not saying he can't grant clemency; I'm saying he technically doesn't have to do anything, if he doesn't want to. He doesn't have to intervene if he so chooses. He can just sit by and do nothing and the murderer will be executed.

Yeah, for the most part I'm glad, but leaving my home state and home town was difficult, even though neither of the two are the anything like they were when I grew up.

I forget...is the next stop the 9th Circus?

\\ No, the 9th Circuit does not have jurisdiction to hear appeals from state supreme courts. The next stop would be the USSC.

I get the odd feeling that Arnold is going to grant clemency based on this guys celebrity support and Nobel PP nominations.

Looks like it's all over, except for the riots.

You know, there have been several comments now referring to this. I get this strange feeling that it seems a few people on this forum would be disappointed if large scale riots never occur. You know what I mean?

If I am right, I hate to disappoint them, but that isn't going to happen.

It seems the courts are just a crap shoot, arrogant, cloistered, corrupt and oblivious. That's been my limited personal experience and recent judicial history bears it out. Poor, Cory Mayes, very likely innocent, but of no political value to anyone.

ME? Create the clock? ROTFLMAO!

I'll ask around and see if I can find a computer whiz because I think a clock is a marvelous idea!

Can anyone here create a countdown clock for Tookie's execution?

If yes, please FR mail the instructions to DougFromUpland.

Sadly to a certain extent I agree with you - There are absolutely major problems in our court system. Both criminal and civil court systems.

Additionally in the Mayes case, if one of those cowboy cops would have plugged him during that reckless assault (all in the name of the WOD)....this officer would have received a week or two suspension and that's all.

Mayes loses his life - Sad.

Point of the riot posts is to show what lying sacks of trash the supporters of Tookie are. Here they are trying to save the guy saying he's done so much to thwart violent youths and here are gang members threatening violence. Let him die. It will save inoocent lives
