I wrote about the Tookie Williams deathwatch yesterday. My conclusion is that mercy should trump justice in this case.
Williams is not a very sympathetic, or deserving man. He was a stone killer, and has not repented. God may judge him quite harshly. Until then, we’ve got him safely locked away, and should keep him that way. I say that’s enough, and here is one reason I’d like all who disagree to consider Romans 3:10: None is righteous, no, not one.
That’s me, and that’s you. And that is most certainly Tookie Williams. We are all guilty under the God’s Law; Williams has the distinction of having also been found guilty under the (secular) law. For a series of heinous crimes.
As usual, Jesus had it right about stones and that throwing thing.
