Schwarzenegger Denies Clemency for Tookie Williams

This makes me feel ill.. that we as human beings ever presume we should have the power to do this, I'll never understand..

Gov. Schwarzenegger Denies Clemency for Crips Co-Founder

Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger announced today that he would not grant clemency to Stanley Tookie Williams, whose bid to avoid being put to death shortly after midnight tonight has gained wide attention.

Governor Schwarzenegger's decision not to halt Mr. Williams' execution by injection at 12:01 a.m. Tuesday is his third rejection of a petition for a stay of execution or clemency since he took office in 2003. Clemency has not been granted to a death row inmate in California since 1967...

EDIT: Bomani Jones reminds us there are still many battles remaining to fight on this front.
