I can’t believe the execution of Crips Gang co-founder Stanley "Tookie" Williams is so big. The irony of it all is that they are meeting with former Terminator, Arnold Schwarzenegger. Weird.
Now, I don’t buy into Snoop Dogg‘s bullshit claiming that Tookie is an inspiration of troubled youth. The man wrote a couple of books denouncing gang-life. Big deal. Most of these kids can’t read so what’s the point. The kids only understand two things. LIFE and DEATH.
If it were up to me, I’d let the victim’s families of the four people he killed while gang banging decide if he should live or die. If it were me, I’d request to participate. Let me push the button or hold the needle before the injection.
Executing Tookie can serve an inspiration as well. Let it serve as a reminder to these kids that keeping it real and trying to live the life of a thug can cost you your life.
