    Tookie Williams's Story

     

    Dear Dr. Alex Gitlits,

    You are a former employee of Hospira, a present day employee of Nufarm, an avid photographer, and a photograph of yours appears on Hospira's North American website. I am contacting you about that photograph.

    For a moment, I would like you to imagine your beautiful loved one, visiting her parents in America, where they run a motel. One evening, while they are preparing dinner for themselves, a monster of a man, with arms having the circumference of an Olympic swimmer's legs, bursts into their business' lobby, wielding a shotgun like an elongated pistol with one of his huge hands.

    The monster demands all of the money that the old couple has, and they comply, quickly handing over the day's receipts. However, theft of money is not enough to satisfy this evil that walks, and he raises his shotgun to the old couple, and blasts them: first the husband, and then his wife. After finishing off the old ones, the monster turns to their daughter, the sweet love of your life, who'd traveled to America to visit her parents, never expecting to look evil directly in its bloodshot eyes, and this wicked man, in an instant, shoots the young woman in the face, stealing her soft beauty, and her future, and in doing so he inflicts great pain.

    For one full day after that fateful encounter with evil incarnate that walks, the young woman's heart pumps, valiantly, sending oxygen to her severely disfigured face, that only an instant before its final transformation, had been the most beautiful face on which you'd ever set your own eyes. Then, she dies.

    This is a true story. It happened in 1979. At that time, Stanley "Tookie" Williams was that evil spirit, having human form and walking the Earth with a shotgun in hand, and blasting four people, in total, before being arrested. After a decades-long battle, desperately fought not by him, but by his advocates, Williams was finally strapped down, and his veins were infused with magic medicine that made the end of his life as painless as is humanly possible. That medicine, thiopental sodium, was manufactured by Hospira.

    Now, Hospira's leader, Kees Groenhout, has decided to wage his own war, and has put a stop to the production of thiopental, because he has his own agenda, and whatever that may be, it certainly does not include justice.

    Take one brief look at the attached photograph of your loved one, captured from Hospira's website and transformed using Stanley "Tookie" Williams's own steel brush and hot leaden paint (LINK: http://i1105.photobucket.com/albums/h344/deepneedle/hospira.jpg ). For one moment, put yourself in the position of the survivors of those whose lives were stolen by evil incarnate that once walked on this good Earth. In that light, think about Hospira's president, and his unilateral decision to stand in the way of justice.
