When purple things are pulsating on your mind, I'm the one whose clock you want to clean. Aiding is Sparky, the Astral Plane Zen Pup Dog from his mountain stronghold on the Northernmost Island of the Happy Ninja Island chain, this blog will also act as a journal to my wacky antics at an entertainment company and the progress of my self published comic book, The Deposit Man which only appears when I damn well feel like it. Real Soon Now.

Stanley Williams

Stanley Tookie Williams, 51, American convicted murderer, ex-leader of the Crips - was executed for killing 4 people in California.

Killing a man already inprisoned seems a waste. The death penalty appears to be broken.

From the beginning of his sentence, Williams maintained his innocence regarding the four murders, alleging prosecutorial misconduct, exclusion of exculpatory evidence, ineffective assistance of counsel, biased jury selection, and the misuse of jailhouse and government informants.[6] Williams claimed that the police found "not a shred of tangible evidence, no fingerprints, no crime scenes of bloody boot prints. They didn't match my boots, nor eyewitnesses. Even the shotgun shells found conveniently at each crime scene didn't match the shotgun shells that I owned." However, the prosecution's firearms expert, a sheriff's deputy, testified during trial that the shotgun shell recovered from the Yang murder crime scene matched test shells from the shotgun owned by Stanley Williams. No second examiner verified his findings. The Defense claims this expert's methodology was "junk science at best." [7]

There should be no joy in a slow rush to kill.

Below is a man who gets 'boners' when he orders people to death .... (I wish I was making this up ...)

See how US President Bush's face lights up when he admits 30,000 plus Iraqi civilians killed in Iraq warDespite a Lancet Survey, which estimates the Iraq War death toll to be around 100,000 as a result of the US invasion of Iraq ...

I was going to talk more - but feel too sad ... Sparky
