Hail to the Thug

Quadruple murderer and co-founder of the violent drug-dealing Crips street gang Stanley "Tookie" Williams was eulogized and buried today. News coverage was often as sickening as his crimes.

ABC News runs the apologetic headline Activists, Rap Star Say Farewell to 'Tookie' Williams.

The San Francisco Chronicle almost makes him sound like the victim, proclaiming Throng gathers in LA for funeral of executed former gang leader.

Reuters UK proclaims, Executed Calif. killer Williams hailed at funeral.

Fox News ran the Associated Press story and its too generous headline Hundreds Gather for Tookie Williams' Funeral, but the Fox News Web Team voiced their opinion with their Web link from the home page.

It's nice to knew that someone remembered Tookie Williams for the craven murderous thief he really was, and not some sort of martyr.

And that's why I love Fox News. Did you hear that Schwartzenegger's (sp) hometown is trying to disown him over this dumb Tookster stuff?

By comparison, it's really hard to get liberals to demonstrate outside a Saudi embassy against oppression of Christians and women. I guess murderous thugs are more fun....
