Spare The Dad (Tookie) And Spoil The Child (His)

I'll be the first to admit I haven't followed the 'Tookie' Williams saga as closely as I should.

But isn't the argument he shouldn't be executed because through his (ghost-written) books he holds so much sway with the children ® ?

That is, the life of this cold-blooded murderer must be spared so that he can steer others away from joining gangs and set them on the path to righteousness?

Well, 'Tookie' didn't seem to do too good of a job of that with his own children, according to NBC-TV Channel 4 :

'Tookie' Williams' Son Allegedly Rapes Girl At Gunpoint

Girl's Mother Says Convicted Killer's Son Wanted To Hurt Her

November 15, 2005

FONTANA, Calif. — Southern California law enforcement officers searched Tuesday for a 36-year-old rape suspect believed to be a son of Crips street gang co-founder Stanley "Tookie" Williams, who is awaiting execution.

Lafayette Jones, a registered sex offender who may be in the Los Angeles area, allegedly lured a 13-year-old girl into his car in northern Fontana on Saturday, promising to take her shopping at a mall, police said.

"He told her that he had just got paid and that he wanted to buy her some new shoes," the girl's mother, whose identity was concealed due to the nature of the crime, told NBC4. "And he said, I will have you back before your Mom gets home, and it will be a surprise. And she thought it was OK."

Police told NBC4 that Jones allegedly sexually assaulted the girl at gunpoint.

"After he got her into the car, he put a gun to her head and forced the victim to commit certain sexual acts upon him," Fontana police Sgt. William Megenney told the station.

Left at the Ontario Mills mall six hours later, relatives told NBC4 the girl had been beaten up and forced to drink alcohol.

"The reason why he took my daughter is because I didn't love him anymore, and I loved her," the girl's mother told NBC4. "And he was trying to hurt me. And if he ever loved me or cared anything about me, he would turn himself in."

Jones, who police identified as a son of Williams, had lived in Fontana, but the girl's relatives told NBC4 that they had no idea that Jones had a criminal past.

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge William R. Pounders recently set a Dec. 13 execution date for Williams, who was convicted of killing four people during a 1979 robbery spree.

Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, who is in China on a trade mission, has not responded to pleas to commute Williams' sentence.

There's even some kind of video of the event apparently, if you are into that sort of lurid viewing material.

By the way, isn't another one of our hero father's progeny in jail for murdering some other hapless soul? I seem to recall hearing that somewhere. But it seems to get left out of our one party media's encomiums to the great man.

After all, how many people do you know who have been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize every year since 2001?
