"Tookie" Williams is dead and the world is a better place. Unfortunately, the legacy of violence that he spawned will never end.

Rabe has a good piece. What gets lost behind the hand-wringing of the attention-getting few is that fact that America as a whole overwhelmingly supports the death penalty. Even in California support ranges in the 70's and 80's depending on the poll. The LA Times and the like have tried a few oddly-stated poll questions and still can't get the number below the high 50's. Not that this is a contest, mind you. I just grow tired of the protester coverage as if there were no one in the world in support of this execution.

Once again, a high-pressure move to separate consequences from actions has failed.
