RIP Tookie: War unto death

The dedication of William’s book “Life in Prison” casts significant doubt on his personal redemption. This book was published in 1998, several years after Williams’ claimed redemptive experience. Specifically, the book is dedicated to “Nelson Mandela, Angela Davis, Malcolm X, Assata Shakur, Geronimo Pratt, Ramona Africa, John Africa, Leonard Peltier, Dhoruba Al-Jahid, George Jackson, Mumia Abu Jamal, and the countless other men, women and youths that have endured the hellish oppression of living behind bars.” The mix of individuals on this list is curious. Most have violent pasts and some have been convicted of committing heinous murders, including the killing of law enforcement. Full

This is one of the reasons cited by the govenator for the execution of Mr. Williams. In short he cited too many uppity niggers and he scared white folk. The other reasons being testimony from people being tried for murder or cutting deals while in jail. I understand now why lawyers and judges drink at the end of the day; you need something to wash down all that bullshit. But, we know that the legal system is a whore house and politicians nothing more than madams. The real reason Tookie is dead is because black folk don’t give a shit and Arnold knows it. The governor will not lose one vote, Russell Simmons, Sean Combs, Calvin Brodus, Jesse Jackson, none of these individuals will organize or exert the effort to hold the governor and the prosecutors accountable for their actions. More importantly, what will the people in California for whom this was an issue do about it? Probably nothing. So long as this is the case the government will continue to lynch at will. Another life destroyed in the name of “Justice.” Damn I miss Johnny.
