Tookie vs. Cory in a Death Row Death Match

Who generates more sympathy?

A former Crip leader who changed his life of crime into an object lesson in road-to-Damascus style transformation?

Or the victim of a poorly executed police search on his home who fired on an officer of the law (whom he assumed was a burglar)?

Man, these are the kinds of questions that must vex the actual liberal elite.

Who to support?

My vote goes to Cory Maye. I suppose that a case could be made however that if even the most violent and vile of offenders don't have rights then none of us really do. It just seem a poor choice to raise awareness of the inherent racism and unjustness of a system that exacts the ultimate penalty on people with varying degrees of an ability to defend their lives.
