Will The Crip Get The Drip?

Neal Boortz is predicting that Gov. Schwarzenegger will puss-out today and grant clemency to cold-blooded murderer/gang founder/children's book author Stanley "Tookie" Williams, who's scheduled to get the big shot at 12:01am Tuesday morning.

It won't happen. First, the federal courts are likely to grant a stay or two. After all, he was only sentenced about 24 years ago. What's the rush? Secondly, I believe that the main reason the execution of Tookie Williams won't be executed is because Schwarzenegger knows full well that as soon as Tookie's death is announced there will be riots in South Central Los Angeles and elsewhere. The huge media exploitation of this story has made drop-dead sure of that. There are thugs just waiting for an excuse ... not a reason, an excuse. The rioting, of course, will lead to wide scale looting. There are a lot of aspiring rappers and NBA superstars who could really use a nice flat-screen television right now.
Boortz of course is being a little tongue-in-cheek here, but being a cynic he probably believes it. Call me pollyanna, but I have a feeling that Arnold will hold to his oath of office and allow the "termination", in the best interest of the people of Cal-ee-forn-ee-a.

Flap's Blog has a Tookie Death Watch going.
