And in 2005, Arnold Schwarzenegger executed Stanley “Tookie” Williams at San Quentin. The ex-Governor of California, a proud Republican, incidentally also the son of a Nazi, said he would not commute the death sentence to life imprisonment, citing that Williams dedicated his 1998 book "Life in Prison" to, among others, George Jackson! For Schwarzenegger the executor, this meant “that Williams is not reformed and that he still sees violence and lawlessness as a legitimate means to address...

In the past I posted information on this board about "Tookie" Williams. Of course, his plea was not that well received by many on this board who have been witnesses to the destruction gang violence and gang killings.

It seems like it's 1960 again. And it's regressing fast. Cuz what we talked about back then is what we are CURRENTLY discussing today. I heard about Aretha Franklin's taking about a statement he made at her funeral. And Steve shouted black lives matter. And the preacher said black lives don't matter, if black folks don't care about each other. We need to start caring about each other again. And he is soooooooooooooooooooooooooo right!
