Stanley "Tookie" Williams is scheduled to be executed on December 13th. He co-founded the Crips gang in 1971, but since his incarceration, he has become a true peacemaker (to the extent that he has been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize five times for his work in helping to prevent gang violence. He has also been nominated for the Nobel Prize in Literature for his anti-gang children's books.)

You can find out more about the case (which is riddled with blatant discrimination on the part of the courts) here, and you can sign a petition to ask Arnold to grant clemency for Tookie here.

Over on The Christian Prophet blog a message from the Holy Spirit today talks about forgiveness and says Schwarzenegger would find it easy to choose the right course.
