In a very articulate and well thought out statement. Gov. Schwarzenegger in part states:
"After studying the evidence, searching the history, listening to the arguments and wrestling with the profound consequences, I could find no justification for granting clemency. The facts do not justify overturning the jury's verdict or the decisions of the courts in this case."
The 9th U.S. Circuit Appeals also denied Tookie's request for a reprieve stating in part that there is no "clear and convincing evidence of actual innocence."
I still wonder why there is so little said about his victims (at least the ones he was convicted for murdering. There is so little said about them, that a MSN web search yields THIS INSIGNIFICANT blog!!!
That's pretty telling!
