Snoop will be attending a rally this Saturday outside San Quentin State Prison to support a former gang leader to be executed Dec 13th. The gang leader, Stanley Tookie Williams, was sentenced to death in 1981 for killing 4 people in two LA robberies.
Williams was co-founder of the Crips. While on death row, Williams has earned recognition for his children's books urging children to stay out of gangs. Other peaceful prison teachings have earned Williams several Nobel Prize nominations.
An award winning movie about Williams life, "Redemption" starring Jamie Foxx has drawn attention to his case. Over a dozen other rallies are to take place around CA. There will also be a constant vigil at the prison from Dec. 4th until the execution.
