Stan Williams co-founded the L.A. Crips in 1971. In 1981, he was convicted of murder by a jury from which all Blacks had been removed. Standing before a racist system, without adequate funds or competent counsel, he had no real chance of demonstrating his innocence during his trial.

While in prison, Stan began writing books de-glamorizing gangs and prison life for children and young adults. Because of this work, he has been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize five times.

Tookie has try to right his wrongs but he has created an irreversible situation. Co-founding the Crips has caused thousands to suffer through the years, mostly black on black crimes. Have you or your family been a victim of a crime committed by a Crip? Have you lost a friend or family member at the hands of a Crip? Would you be so supportive if a Crip took the life of your mother, father, child, etc? We have kept Tookie alive a long time and at great expense. For that, he should be thankful.

You are all doing wrong and you could have stopped it Mr. Schwarzenegger, but NO being the non-American what you are, you are going to kill a man who has reached the Hearts of many kids in gangs, even gangmembers want to lay down their arms and make it better because of Tookie. You guys are Killers, and therefore should be also put in Death Row. The White MAn came and killed the Indians, the White came and had his Slaves and killed them. The White MAn can do anything he wants to, the Black Man can´t. Police ask who done it the White people say it was a Black Man. Jewish believe in eye for an eye, thats what God wants. But God also says THOU SHALL NOT KILL, and what has Happened They Killed Tookie. I am not proud of being a WHITE MAN. Please God Take Tookie to you and forgive him of his actions!!! He is a good man and he is Black with a Big Heart and has spread out lots of Love in the World. Now as for the rest of the Gangs I hope not that you all consider that when Tookie has died that you need to go out and seek revenge, Please think what Tookie has done for you all and try to Keep Peace for Tookie´s sake. PEACE!!!!

My heart goes out to "Tookie". He changed his life and still was not acknowledged for it. I believe the Governor didn't grant him clemacy because he wants to stay in office for other years.To everyone who beleived Tookie should have lived we as aworld need to stick together and make a difference. We Love You Tookie!
 

Re: Pics from 11/19/05 Save Stan Tookie Williams Rally at San Quentin, CA

I think it's sad that in the year 2005 that a black man is put to death based on circumstantial evidence nearly 25 years ago where the prosecuting attorney was proven a racist and a liar and had railroaded black men in past cases. Mr Williams had every right to be retried and given a fair trial. The witnesses against him have admitted they lied because of coercion by police officers. Many people have forgotten the brutality that blacks suffered with the LAPD several years ago and are still faced with today. To kill this man was a crime against humanity and America with it's double standards, racist practices and attitudes will pay in the long run. This is why the world hates America and laughs at us- we try to fool everybody but we're just like glass and everyone sees right through the hypocracy. Remember Rome- it fell!!!!

Re: Pics from 11/19/05 Save Stan Tookie Williams Rally at San Quentin, CA

this is so racist when manson killed all those people and even cut a womans unborn baby out of her stomach he didn't gat the death penalty but he became a millionare in prison where as tookie began to change his life and try to teach the young and no one want to hearhim and arnold is a republican anyway that's why it didn't matter to him but in the end you all will pay for that
 

Re: Pics from 11/19/05 Save Stan Tookie Williams Rally at San Quentin, CA

Re: Pics from 11/19/05 Save Stan Tookie Williams Rally at San Quentin, CA

Hello my name is Sophia Thompson I am 14 years old and I think execution is NOT a very good thing to do. Stanley Tookie Williams was a very good man he did not desire to be execution. Just because you found the founder of the Crips does not mean that there would be no more crips. Everyday a person joins a gang.Weather it's the Crips or the Bloods. I am very young and I know alot of bloods and crips and I know why most people join gangs is becuase they think that is the only way they can live and know that they are safe on the streets. Some people don't see it as others but growing up with out a dad and your mom using drugs. and you are use to takin care of your self.People on the street look out for you more than your family.
