Add comment on:Clemency for Stanley “Tookie” Williams, by former 60's activist & State Senator Tom Hayden
Is it the state’s interest to inflict violence by execution against an inmate who is himself a resource against violence? Or should “Tookie” Williams’ sentence be to work against violence for the rest of his days? I urge you to accept a standard of reasonable doubt. Should a man be executed where there are such significant differences of opinion over what his fate should be?
