Tookie - So Long But Not Forgotten
First of all let me get this out of the way: I underestimated Schwarzenegger's total lack of humanity which he handedly demonstrated by his refusing the clemency appeal for Tookie Williams. Arnie (going thru 2nd Saturn Return) like most inflexible political leaders facing the wrath of Saturn in Leo has a real aversion to revolutionary change. All the Terminator knew how to do in the screen version was to terminate and with the help of hired ghost writers, he had his rationale to offer death over redemption. In fact Arnie just couldn't offer life without parole to Williams who dedicated his a book 'Life in Prison' to the those revolutionaries who according to the Governator: "had violent pasts and some have been convicted of committing heinous murders, including the killing of law enforcement" Here is the list that was so repulsive to Schwarzenegger - 'Nelson Mandela, Angela Davis, Malcolm X, Assata Shakur, Geronimo Ji Jaga Pratt, Ramona Africa, John Africa, Leonard Peltier, Dhoruba Al-Mujahid, George Jackson, Mumia Abu-Jamal' All Black poltical prisoners except Leonard Peltier (Native American) all icons of social change almost all martyrs for a causes antithetical to repression and predjudice.
Perhaps Angela Davis one of those on this above list said it best: "The State of California May Have Extinguished the Life of Stanley Tookie Williams, But They Have Not Managed to Extinguish the Hope for a Better World" For those who care about the mirror held up with Astrology, we are seeing thru the media not just mainstream that Tookie's death and previous wounding via Chiron in Aquarius is being felt by a large numbers in the collective and will keep the question of whether the death penalty is still needed.
