About Nobel Peace Prize Nominees 


From tookie.com:


You may order the autobiography of Stanley "Tookie" Williams, Blue Rage, Black Redemption from Damamli Publishing Company....

From Tookie's autobiography you can also learn about his nomination for a Nobel Prize for Peace and Literature.



From Ontario Empoblog (originally from deathpenalty.org):


DECEMBER 4, 2005

Danny Glover invites you to a screening of "Redemption: The Stan Tookie Williams Story"

Where: Victoria Theatre, 2961 16th Street in San Francisco
(next to the 16th Street and Mission BART Station)
When: December 04, 2005 at 5pm
Why: Help STOP THE December 13th EXECUTION of Nobel Peace Prize Nominee Stan Tookie Williams....



From Ontario Empoblog (originally from knowgangs.com):


Dear Nobel Peace Prize Committee Members,

I am writing to the committee to protest the nomination of Stanley "Tookie" Williams for the Nobel Peace Prize. By way of introduction, I am Wesley D. McBride, President of the California Gang Investigator’s Association, an association comprised of over 1,600 law enforcement professionals, concerned with the control and management of the street gang problem facing our country. I have nearly 35 years experience in law enforcement and have worked in communities that have experienced the full wrath of the violence that Mr. Williams helped establish....

There are many deserving individuals spanning this globe that deserve this honor and have done glorious deeds in the name of peace. Many of them warriors, statesmen, and common citizen, yet all share in their endeavors to make our world better. I sincerely encourage you not to give any serious consideration to Stanley Williams.



From ba.broadcast (quoted in Ontario Empoblog:


[A]fter much was made by his supporters of convicted murderer and gang founder STANLEY "TOOKIE" WILLIAMS' nomination for the [Nobel Peace] prize for his jailhouse conversion to peace and writing childrens' books, CLEAR CHANNEL Talk KFI-A/LOS ANGELES morning man BILL HANDEL managed to get himself nominated for the same prize....

The host, who was nominated by an unnamed U.S. Congressperson, said in a statement "I am deeply honored to be placed amongst the august company of other Peace Prize nominees such as ADOLF HITLER, JOSEF STALIN, BENITO MUSSOLINI, and STANLEY 'TOOKIE' WILLIAMS.”



From Patterico:


Regular readers know that I am seeking a Nobel Peace Prize nomination, since I believe I am more deserving than murderer Stanley “Tookie” Williams.


So, how do you get nominated? Here's what the Nobelites say:


The process of selecting a winner of the Nobel Peace Prize starts in September, about a year before the prize announcement. At this time, the prize-awarder in Oslo, the Norwegian Nobel Committee, composed of five members selected by the Storting (Norwegian Parliament) sends out letters to individuals and organizations qualified to nominate candidates. (Nominators »)

The nominations reach the Nobel Committee between September and February. In recent years, the Committee has received well over 140 nominations.
