Sparing the Crips Founder: The Fight to Save Stantley "Tookie" Williams
Matt Gonzalez
Would anyone suggest that one man should be killed for the crimes of another? Then what should a society do when that man has so transformed himself that he no longer resembles the one we want to punish?...While it is true that the striking of a single black juror alone would not rise to the Batson case level, striking every black juror as in Williams’ case would certainly sound alarms -- particularly in a case where the defendant is black and where the prosecutor has a documented history of this brand of improper conduct.
