Oscar-winning actor Jamie Foxx is among a number of high-profile stars calling for clemency for gang leader Stanley "Tookie" Williams

BBC News:


Foxx, who starred in a dramatisation of Williams's life, protested against Williams's planned execution at the premiere of his new film Jarhead.

Last week rap star Snoop Dogg spoke at a rally at San Quentin prison saying Williams's voice "needs to be heard".

Williams, 51, was sentenced to death in 1981 for the murder of four people.

Co-founder of the notorious Los Angeles Crips street-gang, Williams denies committing the 1979 murders that put him on death row.

He faces death by lethal injection on 13 December 2005.

Personally, I have no problem with the appeals for clemency since I'm opposed to the death penalty. But for some reason I find the usual reason given -- his post-murder life in prison -- to be offensive.
