Stanley "Tookie" Williams, one of the founders of the Crips street gang, will probably not draw any mercy from California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger. The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals has just rejected a last-ditch appeal; this follows a simiar rejection from the California Supreme Court.
Williams is scheduled to die at 2:01 a.m. Central time Tuesday. Had either appeals decision come with a dissenting voice, Williams might have a chance of survival. Now it looks extremely doubtful. Those with a taste for blood will be happy.
