I pray and hope that this "Fancy Lynching" does not continue. What does it profit us to take another life. Not just Tookie but others that have been put to death by the state. No I am not justifying the crime but we are teaching people that an eye for a eye is justified and we all can morally say that's not going to solve anything or bring closure or peace to ANYONE. My heart goes out to every family that had to get that phone call saying that their child, mother, or father was murdered. But, my heart goes out to the people that say that we can stop their pain by keeping the murder cycle going. America was not built on an eye for an eye but it was built upon justice and truth. Therefore I believe that this thing we call justice is not fair to ANYONE.
And I speak from experience as someone who has family members who were murdered.
