Thx Kevin41 I respect your thoughts but theory and reality are two different things. This is not an emotion thing with me. I can calmly say that if someone were to harm my family that no matter where they went I would hunt them down with extreme predudice no matter if it took years.
Had Tookie been a child of 10 or even 16 I might be able to believe the claim that he was a misguided child but he was an adult when he committed these crimes.
He's had 24 more years than his victims to redeem himself.
And now for the academic test.
Would you give the same chance for redemption if this were Adolf Hitler and he was in the process of continuing his progrom against Jews, Russians, and Blacks (Yes there were blacks in Germany at the time). You are alone with him and you have a gun if you kill him it would save millions of lives if you don't you along with those will die. What would you do tick tock tick tock.
I feel the same way about some of the killers out there. Tookie's legacy regardless of what he may do or say is that his gang still exists and still reaps victims.For me that is beyond redemption.
