Nancy Grace has a countdown to Tookie's execuation and it's sick, and shes just itching for it. It's like she wants to flip the switch herself. Between this and the Iraq bloodbath why are so many of us so barbaric?

It reminds me of when they stamped Scott Peterson with a red Death stamp - freaks me out. It's like the movie running man, where life is cheap and people die for sport, this time Arnold is in the opposite position as he was in the movie. It's like Nancy Grace wants to kill Tookie to make herself feel better, more secure.

The other reporters on the show say Tookie isn't a good poster child so he should die. I know he's not a good poster child but I don't think he should die. I hear arguments from people like imagine how much it costs to feed him his entire life. It actually costs more to execute someone mith all the appeals. America loses a part of itlesf when it takes on thinking like we should kill people because it's too expensive to feed them.

Randi Rhodes was saying today the only thing this deters is redemption and shes right.

There's more on O'Reilly below and a poll!

I also watched a segment on O'Reilly about the San Francisco cop home movie where they run over a homeless black women.

A prosecutor was on defending the cops and a defense attorney was prosecuting the cops, funny how the roles reverse when the police have transgressed.

The prosecutor argued running over a homeless black women and a black cop with a dog leash on his neck on all fours was ok because it was made "to boost morale" and because no one was supposed to see it.

O'Reilly agreed and said it was just like a bachelor party thing "to blow off steam" in th end O'Reilly said it was wrong because they did it in unifrom but he didn't really condemn it or anything!! Sounds like what Rush Limbaugh said about Abu Ghraib!

What is it with Conservatives and hurting and demeaning other people to feel better about yourseves?

Why are the bad people in charge of the world?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    I think Nancy will always resent the fact that Ann Coulter will always be just a little crazier than her.

    Then did he raise on high the Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch, saying, "Bless this, O Lord, that with it thou mayst blow thine enemies to tiny bits, in thy mercy."

    •  Crazy Ann Was recently booed off the stage at my.. (4.00)
      School - UCONN

      My conervative friend at Quinipiac was bused in to see her.

      He whined about poor Ann not being treated fair.

      The college republicans are pretty organized - they act like theyre rebels for being conservative. They like like victims of a larger conspiracy.

  •  They Ought To Play O'Reilly and Nancy Baby (none)
    Back to back 24 hrs. a day on loudspeakers in the "Badlands" of Pakistan. Bin Laden and the rest of those bastards would come out screaming to be executed within about 3 hours.
  •  On his radio show today, Hannity (4.00)
    was practically counting down the minutes to Williams' execution.

    The bloodlust of these "Christians" is remarkably unChristian.

  •  I detest Nancy (none)
    I remember my first memory of her.  She was subbing for Larry King, and I just wanted to toss the TV out of the window.  She's awful.  Now if ever I see her face on the boob tube, I quickly change the channel.  

    She's so phony it hurts.

  •  I said a prayer.... (4.00)
    for Mr. Tookie's soul.  And those of the victims and those of the families of the victims.  And those of the Crips and the Blades and the other gangsta members selling drugs to move out from living with mom.  And the everlasting soul of Arnold Schwarzenegger.  I am going to pray for him too.  

    Where is the dialog on making this a safer world, with more opportunity and less crime?  

    We had 4 kids gunned down with an Uzzi on prom night by drug dealers from Detroit gangs, here in WV.  Two black kids, two white kids.  Two boys killed on their 19 and 18th birthdays- one an only son.  A fifteen year old girl who pleaded for her life, according to the terrified neighbors.  11 blocks from my middleclass life.  A young man on the football teamdied, who went to school with my son, who had been to the same prom, played on the same football team.  

    Where is Ms. Grace to solve this crime?  We are lucky to have a $20,000 reward fund and a few billboards- who killed our children?  

    Ms. Grace, who sold the criminal the Uzzi?  Who sold the drugs?  Who fired the police hired by Clinton for our community?  Why didn't the cops not investigate the crack houses when the neighbors complained- burnout since many were called up to Iraq?  Who took these TEENAGERS a chance at life on prom night?  

    I pray for the executioner who killed them and the one who sold them the gun.  I pray for the moms and dads, grandmothers and grandfathers, brothers and sisters, and family friends.  There is a war in our cities and towns and no one cares.  Mr. Tookie has been locked up, fighting for his life for 20 years.  I don't care about him anymore.  I want the money spent trying to kill him for his crimes to be spent to save 4 young lives, in reperation for the 4 he took.  I don't want some other town to lose the 4 young lives we lost this spring.

  •  It's disturbing (none)
    When I first saw the movie "Gladiator" I wondered how it was possible that ancient people got off on such disgusting violence.  Now, I worry we're about to bring the colliseums back.
  •  I have one question for you: (4.00)
    Why are you watching this crap?

    Nancy Grace, O'Leilly?  

    Turn.  Off.  The TV.  

  •  I Would Not Watch That Witch Burned At The Stake (none)
    Oh, but what poetic justice that would be.
  •  Who loves you, and who do you love?! (none)
    The Running Man does have a certain creepy reality to it now, especially the novel, which ends with the character Arnold played crashing a commerical jet into the network's skyscraper. Guess Condi never read it.

    To claim secular societies are rejecting God, is to concede that religious societies are rejecting reality.

  •  Nancy Grace is a vicious, talentless hack. (none)
    All she can do is yell.  At least Ann Coulter is intelligent; you can hate her for misusing her gifts.  Nancy Grace is just a two-bit failed lawyer suckling the baby bottle of hate (filled from the teat of fear with the pump of despair).  Five years from now she'll be doing "Tough On Crime" speeches at college Federalist Society meetings in front of 23 people while the rest of us are actually making the country a better place.  

    You can never ask too many questions.

    •  Like Many Lawyers (none)
      I have some problems with Nancy Grace (who seems to be unable to shed her former life as a criminal prosecutor and murder victim).  I worry about someone who thinks the criminal justice system can never make a mistake.  Her own past as a prosecutor shows that even she made mistakes (including ethical mistakes).

      However, she also is the victim of crime and is a strong victim's advocate.  On other issues, outside the criminal justice arena, she holds views that are liberal.

  •  Look lets start with one reminder about Neocons (none)
    they have know heart, no sense of right or wrong, no care for others than themselves and their rich friends, have no emotions to those less fortunate, those festering in bad neighborhoods and a poor standard of living that makes people do bad things.

    These so-called God-fearers, actually do not serve him at all, but use him as a cover. Now, what would you expect of them. They know nothing of living the faith they so speak of. Look at Falwell and Robertson as an example, both are "blood thirsty" liars that would grap a needle and inject if they could.

    So, Nancy Grace believes their is no redemption, no on charged incorrectly and everyone is guilty, even those that may have had someone make up charges on them. If they think this behaviour shows a God like life they will find themselves on the wrong side of judgement, believe me. Most Neo-cons will face it as well.
