- Reporter's Notebook: Youth Radio Commentary on the Tookie Williams Case
The NAACP held a rally today at Los Angeles City Hall to support clemency for Stanley "Tookie" Williams. He founded the Crips and he's on death row for the killing of 4 people in two robberies 26 years ago. Williams denies the killings but his legal appeals have run out, and Governor Schwarzenegger will hold a clemency hearing on Thursday of this week. Williams' supporters say he's a role model because he's turned his back on gang life and urged young people to do the same. Casandra Gonzalez is a 21-year old former gang member who prepared this commentary for Youth Radio LA.
