"Tookie" Williams

The Federal 9th Circuit Court of Appeals has rejected Stanley "Tookie" Williams' Stay of Execution. This leaves it up to Governor Schwarzenegger to grant clemency or Williams will be executed at 12:01 am PST, just under 12 hours from now.

UPDATE: 3:31 pm EST-Governor Schwarzenegger refuses clemency for Williams. There was not an on camera notification, but an email sent to the media. There have been threats of rioting. This will be a tense twelve hours.
