On Dec. 13 California put to death a murderous thug. Some say he found God while on death row and had changed his ways, but how do we know for sure?
The liberal elite points to his books, and his work to try to prevent young people from joining gangs, but that is not enough. Jailhouse conversions are not uncommon - but did he really change, or was it just for show, intended to help win him a reprieve? We will never really know for sure.
If he was saved and had accepted Christ, he is now in a much better place. If not - well, let's say things are heating up for him now. I tend to think if he had really changed he would have admitted his crimes and asked for forgiveness.
Some of the liberal elite are trying to make this about Stanley "Tookie" Williams, but the real focus needs to be on his victims, their families and the impact his crimes have had on them. Those groups trying to make this about race are themselves guilty of racism. These people are trying to make him the victim here when he made lousy choices in his past that caused the death of innocent people who did nothing more than be in the wrong place at the wrong time.
This man was a cold blooded murderous thug who should have been put to death 20 years ago. Justice has been served.
