There's a Difference Between Justice and Revenge

Guilty or innocent, this morning's execution of Tookie Williams was unjustified. In a Constitutional Democracy the citizenry submit to laws and bestow certain powers unto the government in order to create a civil society where indivual liberty is protected. A Constitution does not guarantee the rights of the public but in fact details the rights and limits of the State; what it is that the State can and cannot do. When did we ever declare that the State could sanction murder?

Unjustified? One less scumbag on the Earth. Tookie was full of Dookie, and now he's buried in it. Plant the prick!
