Tookie's Legacy

David Anderson is an occasional sparring partner of mine, and despite our differences and occasional dust-ups, I find I like him. It’s just a tragic circumstance that he’s just utterly wrong on so many issues.

On one, however, he’s absolutely right. And he brings a perspective to a recent controversy that must be heard.

David grew up in Los Angeles, in the heart of the neighborhood where the Crips also grew into the national threat they are today. He saw, up close and personal, just what these subhuman monstrosities can do. And he has the scars to prove it.

The execution of Stanley “Tookie” Williams does, indeed, bring up a great many questions about our society. For me, the two most prominent ones are 1) what took so long, and 2) why can’t we do that to all of them?

Go and read David’s account. And while you’re at it, take a look at what David escaped, but others did not. (Warning — graphic photos of Williams’ victims.)
