No Clemency for Tookie Tookie Williams, now 51, was sentenced to death in 1981 after he was found guilty of murdering four people during two separate robberies two years earlier.
Williams was convicted for the murders of Albert Owens, Tsai-Shai Yang, Yen-I Yang, and Yee Chen Lin, which took place in 1979 during two separate robberies. During the robberies Williams shot Owens twice in the back of the head, execution style, and shot the Yang family up close with a shotgun, at point-blank range.
So I have a question. Why is there a question as to whether or not this man should die? There are those who say he has reformed, and I am happy for him if that is the case, but it hardly excuses those bestial actions taken by him all those years ago. It would be different if there was some provocation, or a question of self defense. Those elements were not present. Tookie made a choice -- he aggressively took the lives of four people. When you make a choice, you have to face the consequences. I am extremely disappointed in Arnold Schwarzenegger. He should not even give the appearance of considering clemency. If I were the Governator, when the predators' advocates groups started calling for clemency, I would have immediately started work to expedite the execution. But that's just me. I don't think you should be able to aggressively take the life of another and get away with it. _____________________________________________
