Nominated four times for the Nobel Peace prize … on Death Row – November 7, 2004
From the article:
Stanley ‘Tookie’ Williams is not typical of the 629 Death Row inmates at San Quentin prison in San Francisco. Convicted of four murders and the self-confessed co-founder of the Crips, the world’s deadliest street gang, he has become a successful children’s author whose conversations are sprinkled with Latin phrases and references to ancient Greek mathematicians. He has been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize four times for his anti-gang initiatives, which he is now extending to Britain.
