Many people say Stanley a.k.a. "Tookie" was a horrible man who started one of the meanest gangs, but most people don't know the truth about him. First off the name Tookie was given to him by his mother when he was just a baby! When he started the gang, The crips, it was to protect themselves (the blacks) from the white people. Technically Tookie isn't the real founder of the Crips, a man by the name Rayman Washington started the gang in December, 1969. He actually signed a peace treaty between the crips and the bloods in 1992. The later generations ruined that for everyone! Many people believe that he killed four people and never made remorse. The witnesses to these crimes were payed to say what they did! He didn't just write one book, but a whole series of books against gangs and violence. If you don't believe what I have state, get on iTunes search "American Gangster" the t.v. series and look for the Stanley "Tookie" Williams episode and watch it.
Stanley "Tookie" Williams turned his life around, and so can you!
