Live (sort of) from Death Row

Last week's blog renter, Jason Buckley, has just posted video from Tookie Williams' execution protest. Interesting stuff. I'm firmly against the death penalty and found this execution to be particularly heartbreaking given Williams' work dissuading kids from gang life and violence. The video is a rough cut but it captures the impassioned speakers, the media circus and the general mood, all intercut with Johnny Cash's haunting "San Quentin."
