PROTEST AT THE PRISON -- From the Save Tookie Committee: We believe that Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger will do the right thing and grant clemency to Stan Tookie Williams. However, if we have not received a decision or if he does not grant clemency, we plan to have a large peaceful protest at San Quentin. At 8 pm at the East Gate of San Quentin Prison. You can park on Francisco Blvd. E, but expect to walk 1 to 1.5 miles to get to the east gate. It will be dark, and there is uneven pavement. We suggest you bring a flashlight, water, and wear good shoes and warm clothing. This will be a peaceful protest. Please listen to security people and don't engage the opposition as it only encourages them. Contact the Save Tookie Committee at 510-253-5418 or 510-333-7966, or e-mail info@savetookie.org for more information.

From the Ontario Empoblog (Latest OVVA news here)

"This appeal for clemency comes after more than twenty years of appeals, exhaustive judicial review, and public scrutiny. In evaluating this case we must not forget the four victims who were shot, by a shot gun that records show was owned by Mr. Williams, their families, and the underlying brutal nature of the acts which Mr. Williams has yet to show remorse." –Pierre Richard Prosper
Pierre, don't confuse a good story by citing the facts. :)

I am probably one of those guilty of not paying enough attention to the victims. I'll try to rectify this.
