Tookie, Rest in turmoil, plead to governor Schwarzenegger for his life.
Arnold said no - wise and moral decision.

What's "funny" and ironic is that Arnold met Tookie Williams 25 years or so ago on Muscle Beach where they talked and made conversation and shook hands.

In other words and with some good will..Tookie shook the hands of his own executioner

Wow! That's kind of like Rumsfeld shaking hands with Saddam back in the '80s. Kind of.

With all due respect, anyone following Tookie's last few months before he was put down probably heard this. I know I did...

That's crazy, but not as crazy as the Governor of California making a movie about A KILLER ALIENS with the Governor of Michigan!!!
