I’m told the entire Calfornia state prison system may go into complete lockdown for the week before and after the upcoming execution of Tookie Williams, this being Dec. 6-20.
Williams, who founded the Crips, has been nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize five times for his work while in prison in dissuading kids from joining the gang life. Nothing can be gained from his death. He has apologized for his gang life but says he can not apologize for the murders he is in prison for because he did not commit them.
Gov. Schwarzenegger has said he’s made no decision yet on commuting Williams’ sentence to life.
The execution is scheduled for Dec. 13.
