The Company You Keep

Simply because you are against the death penalty does not mean you defend those sentenced to be murdered.

I do not know much about Stanley Williams, but no man or woman should be killed by the state.

However, if you disagree with me, Digby has a list of the countries which condone state sanctioned murder. What is interesting are the countries not on the list:

With the exception of Belize, Guatamala and some Caribbean islands we are the only country in North America, South America or Europe to have the death penalty.

We need to execute a Category 5 protection plan. Not our own citizens.

UPDATE: Come to find Stanley Williams was born in New Orleans before moving to California. And Tookie appears to be his middle name, even though I repeatedly see it in quotes ("Tookie").
