**Update Snoop Dogg led a rally of 1000 in front of San Quintin to
try to save Tookie's life!!!

Stan co-founded the Crips gang in Los Angeles. He was framed for four murders and sentenced to death in 1981. At his trial, Stan was found guilty by an all-white jury after the prosecutor removed all prospective Black jurors from the jury pool. In his closing argument, the prosecutor compared Stan to a Bengal tiger in the zoo, and described the Black neighborhood of South Central Los Angeles as his jungle habitat." Stan transformed himself behind bars, writing hildren's books to discourage kids from joining gangs. He has been nominated for five Nobel Prizes, and one of his books won two
national honors. Stan has saved the lives of over 150,000 youth, as reported by them, their parents, teachers and law enforcement
officials in their 70,000 emails to Stan. Earlier this year he received a Presidential Call to Service Award from none other than George Bush. In recognition of the valuable work Stan continues to do from behind bars, both the Los
Angeles Times and San Francisco Chronicle have printed editorials calling on Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger to grant Stan clemency before
his December 13th execution date. To put even more pressure on Schwarzenegger, Stan's supporters have called for a November 30
national day of action to hold press conferences, speakouts and rallies. We have to show "the Terminator" that Boston won't allow him to kill Stan without a fight. Come to the Panel Discussion featuring former assachusetts Death Row inmates and activists fighting to save Stan's life. We want to discuss and organize!

Are you serious? This is drivel at its finest. The man is a convicted murderer - nothing more and nothing less! He has earned what he deserves. Being the founder of that gang is reason enough to at the very least keep him locked away forever.

If he started the crips, that's enough justification for his execution. It doesn't matter is the jury is all Asian Model Citizens. Pull the lever.

He founded the CRIPS, one the most violent street gangs in America. Do you honestly think he's innocent? Did you know that two of his victims , one a store clerk ( totally innocent person) shot execution style, were mudered for the sole fact that they were white?
If we grant him clemency, or as some want, free Tookie, why not free the two rednecks who dragged ( behind a pickup truck) the African American ( after he screwed them in a drug dea, not a totally innocent personl) to death in Texas. Both of them have found God and are working with AIDS patients in the prison hospital at Huntsville, not sure on the location. They're currently in the appeals process. That's just as good as writing children's books isn't it.
