Thoughts on Tookie.......

Hetep family, its been a while..... some thoughts on Tookie Williams, the recently executed brother from California.....
First of all, you know im gonna stand agaisnt the state execution of a Black man, for reasons that include the inherent bias of the american criminal justice system, and the history of america itself, which shows a brother rarely recieve a fair turn. A huge Blackman such as Tookie, in a court? The visual alone means an unfair trial. For those that need evidence of the bias of american justice, much information is available for those that bother to look. So my baseline assumption concerning Tookie is that he probably recieved an unfair trial, conviction, and execution. But is this accurate? In a fair and just system, what would be Tookie`s fate? In a system of my own design, what would be Tookie`s fate?

BACKGROUND INFO

The Crips street gang was started in 1967 by Raymond Washington in Los Angeles. Among the original members was Tookie Washington. *note that the media claims Tookie as founder*.. A few years later, Tookie broke off a section of Crips to form the first division in the Crips [sets], called the West Side Crips [WSC]. When you hear Ice Cube yell "westside!", the original refferal is to the West Side Crips. This division proved in later years to be fatal, as Crip "sets" have battled Crip "sets" ever since, in addition to thier feud with the Bloods. Tookie was in those days a major architech of the Crip mindset, which has brought so much death and destruction to our people, and has spread from coast to coast.

DOES TOOKIE BEAR RESPONSIBILTY FOR THOSE ACTIONS?

This is the question for me....I realize that the conditions for "Crip" were set up by our enemies, and armed by our enemies, and entered the drug trades on advice from our enemies, but does Tookie bear some responsibility? What percentage? And how much has been counter-acted by Tookie`s admirable contributions in the later half of his life? In order to design a just system to live by, i gotta find answers to these questions ......

Do the positive actions of Tookie in the years before he was executed excuse him from execution?

Another question that I wonder about.....does the positive delete the negative?

In a system of my design, i probably would have executed Tookie for founding such a destructive force back in the 1980`s.

Another thing I wonder about....maybe my system has a design flaw?

Why did I feel a sense of loss when Tookie was actually executed?

I felt like we took a an "L" when Tookie was killed, like we lost a true soldier...

why?

I would appreciate any feedback on this, htp family, sorry this took so long, but im back now...HTP!

I have read your words and I have to disargee with something things you have said. Stan and Ray was not together first and then broke apart. They came together and there was no break off until Ray was dead and little homies started claiming their sets over other crip sets. and this came about when the police started tell one side how the other said that they call yall their dogs and they say they make yall do what they want yall to do because they are the baddest crips.They disrescted your mother or sister, they put their hands on your sister. then when they go to their sister and she tell them that it did happen, and their mother yells at them telling them "those bad ass kids just talk to adults like we some damn kids." So when that happen they knew the cops was telling the truth. but what was not told was those gang members was not real crips but police officers. and thats when they started shooting at one another.
Now about my brother Stan, you say you would have killed him also. well I will only say this. For what he was killed for I stand on they killed the wrong person. Tookie didn't kill those people they said he killed. Now if they would have told the truth on why they could not let him keep reaching back I would have felt better. If they would have caught him on the streets in action or even for some things he may have done on the streets. Then I would have taken it better. but not when they killed him for something he didnt do. But they say it strange how things you do come back on you and thats why he was at peace when he knew they was going to kill him. He smiled at death, and now I will smile at them when they see they made the biggest mistake in life by killing this man.
