Stanley Tookie Williams dies by lethal injection at 12:35 a.m. Supporters inside yell that state has ‘just killed an innocent man.’
Innocent man? Innocent?
Come on people. This is the admitted and well known founder of the Crips street gang. Even IF he didn’t commit those 4 murders he was convicted for, he probably still killed more… Whether he killed other innocent people or just other rival gang members, who knows.
BUT, this guy is NOT innocent by ANY stretch of the imagination.
I, for one, and many others are very glad he is dead and paid the ultimate price for his crimes.
Some guy on FoxNews last night mentioned that it should be done quicker. In the middle eastern countries, they execute within 30 days of the conviction. You are tried and if convicted, you are given 30 days to appeal and if it is turned down, you are immediately executed.
That’s the kind of justice I think we need here in the western world. Show theworld the penalty of the crime while it is still fresh in their minds. This would be very effective.
