Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger refused to block the execution of Stanley Tookie Williams Tuesday , rejecting the notion that the founder of the murderous Crips gang had atoned for his crimes and found redemption on death row. With a reprieve from the courts considered unlikely, Williams, 51, was set to die by injection at San Quentin State Prison just after midnight for murdering four people during two 1979 holdups.
