I wonder if his Crips gang members will make an appearance.

They weren't visible at the hour of his execution. One would have thought that they might have been around to have their say about their founder.
Perhaps they can't read, write, spell or care to show their faces to the national cameras. Perhaps many are on the lam. Or, they are simply too busy. You know, Bloods to kill, shopkeepers to extort, prostitutes to pimp, money to launder, cars to steal, drugs to steal, sell and take.

Busy, busy, busy.

Since he was a "peacemaker", may he rest in peace....

HOWEVER, his soul will probably burn in hell forever. Justice served.

Jasmyne sure does have a screwed up definition of "peacemaker." She must use one of the Bill Clinton Dictionarys. I'll bet she is one of the idiots who refers to terrorists as being "freedom fighters."

I considered posting some crime-scene photographs of the "Peacemaker's" bullet-ridden victims, but I wouldn;t want to make anyone nauseous on this fine Sunday.

Suffice it to say that Tookie got what he deserved, and I hope he enjoys Hell.

They should drag his carcass around to all the LA schools put him on display as a deterrent to gang membership. It would be more beneficial then those children books that no one has ever read or seen

Good point.

Half of these attendees were partying with Terrell Owens when Tookie was getting the needle.

Priorities?

Oh, but maybe they poured liquor on the ground for Tookie?

Idiots.

Williams comes off as somber, even a trifle square. He says he doesn't smoke, gamble, do drugs, curse, drink alcohol or look at pornography, which he calls ''the nasty books.''

Could be a closet moose convert.

The size of each book is: 7 1/2" by 7" and 24 pages in length. The books have full-color photographs, a Glossary, index and Pronunciation Guide to new words for children at those levels.

Message to black youth:

What message does this send to black youth? Here is a man that refused to admit to the murders he perpetrated, or appologize for them. He took credit for starting a gang whose members killed countless people, and inspired the startup of countless gangs who also killed an unknown number of people.

Then someone wrote some books that sold in single digits in some instances, double digits in others, put his name on them and claimed these books influenced over a hundred thousand kids from joining gangs.

Then you had some lame people nominate Tookie for the Nobel Peace Prize and also the Nobel Prize for Literature. What an elaborate sham!

When Tookie was put to death, no gangs claimed him. There was no big commotion. These folks never knew Tookie. His name meant nothing to them.

The propaganda surrounding Tookie having to face justice, is a classic example of what is wrong with too much of the black community in the United States these days. While successful black men are called Uncle Toms and dismissed as role models, the Tookie Williamses are lofted as men of honor and victims of a racist society.

This is revolting on the face of it. It is also a very sad commentary on the future of all too many black youth who will be misled, sent down the wrong path in honor of the Tookies among them.

peacemaker Stanley Tookie Williams

I guess it would be hard to send out funeral invitations featuring "Lowlife scum-sucking vertebrate Tookie Williams".

Overflow viewing will take place outside of the church on jumbotron screens.

"Intermission will feature jugglers, a bearded lady, and a dancing bear. Don't forget to stop by the midway for a chance to win valuable prizes."

Tookie laughed about the sounds that his victims made while dying.


Let's have a few good laughs over Tookie's corpse.

"Peace Maker."
Stan (the bloody hand man) Williams, could be described as a peace maker of sorts within the lobes of the brains of the twisted minded.Tookie's method of making peace was violent and unmerciful for sure, but it never failed. No one is more peaceful than those the sonovabitch slaughtered.

Strange how he fought for 25 years to prevent Justice from rewarding him with the same peace he had so generously bestowed upon others.

Rev Jackson and company were just at the Rosa Parks services, claiming Rosa stood for what they believed in. Well if Rosa was of a like mind as the good Reverend, think she would of paid Tookie any respect?

Those he killed indirectly may now be close to a world record, considering that the murderous gang he founded long ago went world wide.

In hell, Hitler, Stalin, Mao, Pol pot, Sadam's boys, Genghis Khan and Satan himself, may well be worshipping at his feet.
