Tookie flip-flopped on his ethics, what's to say he wouldn't do the same with his last wishes?

Dial 1-800-MATRESS and leave off the second T for Tard-head submitter!

I understand there was also a dog-eared collection of smut.

I say let it go to court. Maybe the victims' families will put in a claim. Be awful if they got it all instead.

I was of the opinion that criminals were not allowed to profit from their crimes.

If I were the relative of one of his many victims, I would sue the dogcrap out of the bastard.

Lawyers would probably eat up all the fees, but at least he wouldn't profit.

I love how they always throw in the Nobel nominations but fail to mention that anybody can nominate you for a Nobel, there are no qualifications for it.

I read "Crisps" and I was like "Oh my good a gang banger came up with a healthy snack for people watching their weight" Then I thought "Ahh I get it, Tookie was fried and hence Crispy!" but no I was wrong it was indeed "Crips".

Meh, all his victims were probably gangsters as well. You really feel like fighting for them?
 
2006-09-10 11:48:00 AM  
He didn't profit from his crimes, he profited from his jailhouse work on children's books. At this point I doubt there's a claim to be made.
 
2006-09-10 11:48:34 AM  
You NeoCon Rethuglicans are all the same, no ability for forgiveness.

You all have Tookie's blood on your bloodlustful hands.

Tookie was a hero. He wrote and sold nearly 300 books worldwide warning kids to stay out of gangs.

I was there that night when the NeoCon government killed him. I shared tears with fellow Code Pink members, and read tearful letters from Susan Saradon and Cindy Sheehan.

He didn't profit from his crimes. He was murdered by the state for those. His profits were from the many childrens books he wrote with anti gang themes.

Barbara Becnel: "The beneficiary."


Travon Williams: "Yeah him, he got $3,000,000 but he didn't get the rose bushes. I got the rose bushes. I definitely got the rose bushes. Those are rose bushes!"

How about a law that makes any & all posessions of an executed person property of the state? Obviously the person was a total POS, so to pay for the cost of zapping them, we get their stuff.

Anyone else get that uncomfortable feeling when 50+ year old women mention "gang bangers"? Makes me think of Jenna Jameson, not the crips...

The man brutally murdered a whole family for fun. Fark anyone who thinks he should have been pardoned for writing kids' books.

Don't you have to actually sell something to make a profit? Those books were a got-damn ploy to make himself look like a "reformed" criminal since he knew his ass was already condemned for robbing and killing numerous people.

Save it. The farker's dead, and it's the only he deserved.

As far as this contested will goes, what could this guy possibly have left besides an unopened pack of filtered cigarillos and a bloodied blue bandana?

Gary, I agree, I laughed so hard I got tears in my eyes. Well done.

they aren't allowed to profit from their crimes, however many states do allow prisoners to profit from their notoriety.

Murdering people and then writing childrens books does not make you good. How about if I kill your mom, GaryBuseyOnARampage? But then,afterwards, I write a kids book. Will you forgive me and leave me alone? fark no. You'll come to kill me or to support whoever is able to. Murderers are murderers,always. And if you disagree, you can burn in whatever hell you two believe in. No forgiveness? fark no!

And stop with the politically retarded baby-talk already. 'NeoCon Rethuglicans'? You want a jar of mashed carrots to go with your mental infancy?

The REAL Gary Busey just called me because he read your post. You have hurt his feelings and I cried with him. Your a cruel NEOLIB and have Gary's tears on your tearlustful hands. We read a letter together from Eddie Murphy. He wants you to quit using his name.

Gary Busey...

Why not see if the families of Albert Owens, Tsai-Shai Yang and Ye-Chin Lin have forgiven Tookie. Were these minimum-wage earning folks just PLANTS, set up by these evil republicans to ensnare Tookie into killing them?
Of course, those are only the KNOWN civilian victims of Tookie. Being a founding Crips member, I suspect he has couple of bodies in his scrapbook. Probably a lot of kids out there without fathers (many of them bangers themselves - but human all the same) thanks to Nobel nominee Tookie.


Save your tears for real victims - Tookie's victims.


BTW...he SOLD 300 books worldwide...he did not WRITE 300 books. There would seem to be a small difference.

I normally don't agree with the death penalty, but in the case of this "reformed" lowlife, live by the sword and die by it. His fake claims of turning his life around are a facade used just to get out of being put to death. If i was a high-profile con on death row, i'd go the same route as soon as i realized i was backed into a corner. Children's books? Shiate, i'd have ORGANS cut out of me and sent to dying kids if it got me out of being executed.
 
2006-09-10 01:20:38 PM  
Apparently simian04 doesn't get sarcasm. May have something to do with the nickname. ah, well. It was a crap attempt at sarcasm anyway. To be expected.

Oh- and I don't believe in the death penalty, either. For lots of reasons, but foremost is the fact that it's next to impossible to be absolutely sure that a person is guilty of a particular crime, and while you can release someone who's in jail if it's later determined that he's not guilty, you can't bring one back from the dead.

other reasons: it's actually cheaper to imprison someone for life, due to the costs of the numerous appeals involved with the death penalty. These appeals are absolutely necessary, as well- there should be absolute certainty of guilt before taking a life, and while that's not possible, the appeals get us as close as we can be.

The death penalty doesn't deter crime. Murder is generally a crime of passion. One who commits it knows damn well he'll likely be caught and what punishments he will face.

Lastly, killing people who kill people to show that killing people is morally wrong.
 
2006-09-10 01:28:01 PM  
I just took the California bar exam in July, and I have already forgotten whatever expertise I had (I sure hope I answered the Wills question they gave correctly). The fact that the beneficiary was a "business partner" no more invalidates the will than the fact that a beneficiary is a child or spouse of the deceased would invalidate it. It's not illegal to leave money to people with whom you have some type of relationship!

Travon's suit says "the will does not reflect his father's true intentions and that he had not discussed alternatives to the document he signed." That is ludicrous, as the beneficiary's lawyer says.

The hearing is Monday. I guess we are not done hearing about the odious Tookie yet.
 
2006-09-10 01:35:03 PM  
Gary... you, Susan, and Cindy should all get together and compare your vaginas to see whose has more sand in it.
 
2006-09-10 01:39:13 PM  
I'm glad that scum is dead. He should have been executed sooner. He should not have been allowed to make any money off of those books. Any money that he did make should go to the victims' families.

Fark him!

I'm pretty sure he admitted to the killings. I could be wrong.

Any member of a gang is a terrorist and should Die In A Fire!

/crips,bloods,13th street dickheads. They all need to die and let the rest of us live our lives without thier kind in exestance.

//"i'm in a gang i'm bad" Tell you what when I kick in your door at 3am and put 2(Two) .45 Cal. bullets between your eyes then you will be bad. Just like .50 cent who does not even equal a dollar.

///gangs make me want to go on a tristate twinkie spree and pump up every fattie I see and use them as a weapon of mass distraction while I run the rest over with a riding mower!

My definition of 'Gang' - To mechanically or electrically couple two or more controls, such as post-effects processors, faders, etc. The combined assembly is then called a ganged fader.

Whats up now biatch, GANGED FADER 4 LIFE

I'd kind of like all gang related felonies to be tried as capitol punishment cases.

Tookie Williams was the antichrist of the ghettos and the evil he produced lives to this day. Nobody read them damn books, or know where they are, but you damn sure know if there is a gang of crips in your neighborhood.

I wonder how many lives he's actually ruined whith what he started.
