The Life Of A Crip King – Stanley Tookie Williams

The Crip King, the King of the Crips and the Crip Godfather are just a few of the names that have been used to describe Stanley Tookie Williams, the man who called himself the co-founder of the Crip gangs in Los Angeles, California. Tookie’s story has been told hundreds of times. The infamous Crip leader convicted of violent crimes and sentenced to death by execution. But what many of the stories are missing is what happened before Tookie became a Crip, why he became a Crip and the reason he later apologized for his part in creating the Crips.
