Talking more Tookie

In this post, I noted the buzz surrounding the scheduled execution of California death row inmate Stanley "Tookie" Williams and the competing arguments being made to Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger as he considers whether to grant clemency to Williams.  I also noted that, though the "Petition for Executive Clemency on behalf of Stanley Tookie Williams" was available at this webpage of the law firm of Curtis, Mallet-Prevost, Colt & Mosle LLP, I could not find on-line any of the filings opposing clemency.

Helpfully, an FOB (friend of blog) sent me a copy of the "Los Angeles County District Attorney's Response to Stanley Williams' Petition for Executive Clemency."  This 57-page response arguing against clemency for Williams is available for download below.
