Stanley "Tookie" Williams, founder of the Crips and convicted multiple-murderer, was buried today in LA. Among the attendees to the funeral were: Jesse Jackson (what a surprise - Jesse shows up where TV cameras are!), Tony Robbins, and Snoop Dogg. I'm a fan of Snoop, but this ain't exactly the A list.
Outside, one could find T-shirt vendors, assorted gangsters, and a variety of gawkers. One of this last group, Keelonnie Roberts, 23, of Torrance, said her father was a Crip who used to tell her tales of gang life. Although Roberts never met Williams, she said, "He seemed like a sweet man to me."
She certainly seems qualified to comment, doesn't she?
Folks, this character killed four people with a shotgun. The punishment, under the law, fits the crime. End of story.
