No Pardon for Tookie

Albert Owens, 26
Yen-I Yang, 76
Tsai-Shai Chen Yang, 63
Yu-Chin Yang Lin, 43
These are the names and ages of the people who were brutally murdered by Tookie Williams in 1979. With all the attention being paid to the plight of poor Tookie lately, I thought it would be a good idea to remind everyone who his victims were because I have not seen one celebrity or activist speak up for them.
Tookie is set to die in under one hour,suffering the ultimate penalty for his crimes, and he has yet to voice anything approaching remorse for the murders which he committed. Tookie has never renounced his gang affiliation despite the bloodshed and violence that his creation, the Crips, has wrought upon the people of LA and the rest of the country. He can write all the children's books he wants but there is no way to atone for a life of evil that has effected generations.
You must reap what you sow and the plants that have sprung from Tookie's seed are still killing people to this day.
