Free Tookie Now... Let Him Live With Sarandon

Stanley Tookie Williams is scheduled to die for executing 4 unarmed people. With his own execution, as determined by the people of California, weeks away the usual bleeding hearts are asking the governor to grant clemency. A pre-requisite for clemency should be whether the person has admitted remorse. Tookie has not.

Now I noticed that Tim Robbins and Susan Sarandon are among those believing Tookie is more valuable to our society alive as opposed to eliminated. OK so how about instead of full clemency we have a conditional clemency where Tim and Susan are appointed probational custodians of Tookie and confine him in their house for two years of house arrest. They advocate turning this monster loose on the rest of us so because he's rehabilitated so they should have no problem bringing him into their home. Then they could help him develop his literary career and community outreach programs to steer young people away from gang life in the urban jungle.
