Gov. Ah-nold refused clemency to Stanley "Tookie" Williams--the longtime leader of the Crips gang and he will therefore be executed at 12:01 AM on Tuesday Dec. 13.
"Stanley Williams insists he is innocent, and that he will not and should not apologize or otherwise atone for the murders of the four victims in this case," Schwarzenegger wrote. "Without an apology and atonement for these senseless and brutal killings there can be no redemption."
NO redemption? Surely Schwarzenegger's Catholic sensibilities tell him otherwise. There is always room for redemption and that is the beauty in Catholic teaching regarding sin and the wonderful sacrament of reconciliation.
May God have mercy on the soul of Stanley Williams tonight and on his alleged victims. Let us pray for all victims of senseless violence whether they are sanctioned by our government or not!
