I understand why some people wanted Tookie Williams executed. Many innocent lives have been slain by gang members. He is part of the blame.
My opinion on if Tookie should die or not, I believe everyone is entitled to a second chance. I also believe in justice. Tookie was convicted of murder and proven guilty. While in prison, Tookie "found" himself and started to change his life around. Apparently, this was enough for the governor, but I know this was enough for God. I try to base all of my decisions on how God will handle them. Personally, I think God would have given Tookie a second chance.
So in conclusion, Tookie has left behind a very important message to all races and nationalities of people. Tookie had a bad reputation but he managed to turn his life around and prevent children from going down the same negative path he chose. This message states: Anyone can change their life around for the better with determination and prayer.
