Virginia Hosts a Milestone

Tomorrow Virginia will host the 1,000 execution since the reinstatement of the Death Penalty. Number 1,000 will be Arlington resident Robin Lovitt, who was convicted of fatally stabbing Clayton Dicks six times with a pair of scissors. In California, Hollywood has gone loony, with their parade to save Stanley Tookie Williams. Tookie Williams, co-founder of the notorious Crips gang, brutally murdered three people in the 70's. Williams, who has been quoted stating horribly racist comments against whites, believed he was a victim of racism during his trial. Strangely enough, a member of the jury was black..... The left, in another sickening move has created websites to try and "SAVE TOOKIE" proclaiming saving him will "help the children". Maybe it's just me, but when a man brutally murders THREE people, I do not think any matter of book writing should be allowed to save him. More so, he retains his innocence in a crime he was convicted of, and has lost every appeal for over twenty years, meaning simply he is guilty. Since 1999, There have been approximately 100,000 murders in this country, and since 1976 only 1,000 people will have been executed for crimes. What possibly can Snoop Dog, and Jamie Foxx be complaining about? A California paper discusses how Governor Schwarzenegger should take a page out of Governor George Allen's book and grant clemency. Reading about how Allen granted clemency for another execution style murderer did not bolster my support for him.

Painting with a broad brush again, I see.

Our next door neighbor was one of the 1,000 executed in VA. He had a tendency to molest, torture, and kill little boys.

I say Let's Celebrate! More than 1,000 Virginian victims have been given justice!

It's 1,000 NATIONWIDE.

As I pointed out...it's not as many as the liberals try and make it.

1,000 deaths for hundreds of thousands of murders.

Who wants to take a bet that too conservative won't bring this up when he sniffs Mr. Allen's behind and asks for a picture

Thanks random anon.

I respect Senator Allen, just do not feel he was correct in his clemency.

Annon. 10:27 and 11:56,
It speaks to the maturity and courage of that 17 year old that you attempt to belittle that he does not exercise his privilege to remove such childish and rude remarks from the comments section that are coming from such an obvious bully (or bullies). He's a far better man already than you can ever become.

For crying out loud people. Stop sticking up for TC like he's a sensitive little school girl. He can take the criticism. I love reading the blog--it's very entertaining. But lately, every time someone says the slightest unflattering comment, everyone freaks out and says, "he's only 17, give him some credit etc." He's shown that he can hang w/ the big dogs in the blogosphere, so just relax and know that he can handle what the idiots of the world want to write about him. Keep up the good work TC!

Annon. 3:46,
Agreed. TC takes these remarks far better than his elders do. To my own defense, I only get my "Irish" up when the derision is focused on his age which, as you point out, is totally irrelevant.

Re the original post: The Governor has commuted the sentence to life imprisonment.

The reasoning offered by that group as to why then Gov. Allen commuted Saunders sentencing is not accurate -- imagine that! If you research the issue further you will find that there were serious irregularities in the Saunders sentencing, specifically a long delay and improper reasons based upon behavior long after the crime.
