Varlet | California Governor Arnold "The Terminator" Schwarzenegger's denial of "Tookie" Williams' clemency petition is an appalling document, showing not only Scwarzenegger's moral cowardice in hiding behind the jury's decision, (which the bourgeois press is emphasizing) but also that he is an extreme right-wing apologist for the frame-up trials and long incarcerations of political prisoners around the globe, from Nelson Mandela to Mumia Abu-Jamal. more... 0 Comments
imcista | In recent weeks, Williams' clemency appeal was the subject of a major anti-death penalty campaign. Writes LA Indymedia:
commie curmudgeon (no more big wheels) | I’ve thought about this issue before, especially when contemplating the fate of Jeff "Free" Luers, who was sentenced at the age of 23 to 22 years and eight months in prison for setting fire to a few SUVs. Given that this kind of sentence is much more severe than most sentences given out for very violent crimes or even certain instances of murder, one would think that all activists and other people who are concerned about guarding our rights against state oppression would be disturbed by this. There can be no question on anyone’s mind that 23 years in prison constitutes cruel and unusual punishment for the burning of a few empty cars, especially when care was even taken to make sure that there was no risk of violence to any human being. When a young adult’s whole life is ruined - when he is sentenced to his whole age in jail – because of a little property destruction, just as if he had committed a murder (or even worse than if he had committed murder), that is one sign of a truly sick system.
