SunnySister BS: Tookie: Say Yer Prayers (143* d) RE: BS: Tookie: Say Yer Prayers 13 Dec 05

To answer you, guest with no name, I thought about the victims and their families- I know you meant those poor people who were murdered and their families, and of course I definitely thought about them. I also thought about those guards who cared for Tookie and had to administer the lethal dose of chemicals. I tried to think about it all.

Just because I am against capital punishment doesn't mean I stick my head in the ground and ignore the pain of the victims- all the victims. I, personally, am a supporter of life without the possibility of parole. I am not pro-criminal, however, I am anti-violence and against killing. Tookie Williams was murdered this morning. The State of California killed him for the citizens of this state. I find that to be barbaric to the extreme.

Revenge or murder, you call it what you like. I am opposed to violence of any kind and this makes me sick. It won't bring back the murdered loved ones, it does not bring peace or comfort- it just ends one person's life who learned from his horrible mistakes and wanted to teach young people not to follow his path into violence.

I am explaining my thoughts from my previous posting. I cannot change your mind, no-name guest, and neither can you change mine.
