Tookie is Cookie with a T in the Front
It is starting to look like the State of California is gonna fry Tookie Williams. I don't know that they should be frying anybody since they can't even balance a budget, but it isn't up to me. Maybe Arnie will cut him some slack, who knows, but if he didn't kill four innocent people for $200 bucks, then starting the Crips is kind of a good enough reason to fry someone anyway.
I am starting to hear one refrain though... usually from the vast ignoramous population out there.
"Why is Charles Manson still alive then?"
You can sound intelligent just by replying "He didn't kill anybody."
Of course, you can explain in more detail that his sentence and all of his followers' sentences were overturned as "cruel and unusual" by the Supreme Court of the State of California that refuses to overturn Tookie.
Or you could just say "What the hell has that got to do with anything?"
