Jesse Jackson and his pathetic ilk will be out in force tonight, bemoaning the execution of Tookie Williams. Here's a vacine for all their silliness, from Project 21
, which bills itself as a leading voice of the black community since 1992:
"There can be no clemency for someone directly responsible for the murders of four innocent people and indirectly responsible for the deaths of possibly thousands more through his founding and leadership of one of the America's worst street gangs," said Project 21 member Mark Jordan. "Tookie Williams later became a published author, Nobel Peace Prize nominee and a celebrity among the opponents of capitol punishment. Unfortunately, similar opportunities were denied his victims. As a Christian, I welcome his repentance and pray for his soul. Repentance, however, does not release Tookie Williams from the consequences of his actions. This bill has finally come due."
"It must be acknowledged that Tookie Williams is a tragic example of a wasted life brought by irreversibly poor choices," said Project 21 member Mychal Massie. "It is tragic not only because of the harm he perpetrated on his community and himself, but because it is apparent he lacked the skills to rise above whatever circumstances are leveled as primary causal factors for personal decisions that ultimately led to his execution. His life should be remembered as a waste and not extolled in martyrdom and legend."
