Die Tookie Die

Yep. I said it. I hope it hurts Stanley "Tookie" Williams. I also hope the absolute worst will on Jamie Foxx for defending this murderer and dreg of humanity.

At 12:01 a.m. Tuesday, Williams, 51, co-founder of the Crips and convicted quadruple murderer, is scheduled to become California's 12th inmate executed since the state reinstated capital punishment 27 years ago.

Sunday night, the state Supreme Court unanimously refused to block the execution. At the same time it ruled that a petition to reopen the defense case lacked merit.

In March 1981, a Los Angeles County jury convicted Williams in four shotgun murders: Albert Owens, 26, who was found on the floor of a 7-Eleven, and Tsai-Shai Yang, 63, her husband, Yen-I Yang, 76, and their daughter, Yee-Chen Lin, 43, who were killed during the robbery of their family-owned motel days later in 1979.

Now he dies. That is justice.
