Tookie Williams Executed by Lethal Injection
"Is Williams' redemption complete and sincere, or is it just a hollow promise?" Schwarzenegger wrote. "Without an apology and atonement for these senseless and brutal killings, there can be no redemption."
At 12:35am Tookie was held accountable for his actions here on earth. What happens to his soul is between him and God, but our government, instituted by man, has to punish criminal behavior.
While I can't take pleasure in his death I am glad that this happened because it's an important reminder that consequences do exist. It's a scary phenomenon today that so many people want to convince the world that the law of action and reaction does not apply. That when you get a negative reaction for your behavior that simply makes you a victim.
It always amazes me the high profile that AIDS gets. It is a 100% preventable disease. As I am writing this I can gurantee you that I will not get AIDS. (don't bother me with the .000001% chance of some freak accident) If you have AIDS I'm sorry, but at the same time you chose to have sex outside of marriage or stick that needle in your arm. When you were doing one, or both, of those things you had convinced yourself that there would be no consequence for what you were doing. You were wrong.
With our dysfunctional death penatly system a lot of people are convinced that there might not be a fatal consequence for their heinous crimes. I'm glad that the state of California proved them wrong.
