Redenção


Stanley e Arnold se conheceram no fim dos anos 70. Ambos eram adeptos do fisiculturismo e Arnold se impressionou pelos músculos do colega. “Olhe aqueles braços, parecem pernas!”, ele disse a um amigo.

Infelizmente, Stanley Tookie Williams encontrou aplicações não muito saudáveis para sua força física, como fundar e liderar os Crips, gangue que foi a mais poderosa de South Central, o célebre gueto de Los Angeles que já foi cenário de duas grandes insurreições populares. E de muito sofrimento e violência sem sentido.

Os Crips teriam nascido com o propósito de autodefesa, de patrulhar as ruas do gueto. Mas logo se tornaram uma quadrilha em guerra com outras, em particular um longo e sangrento confronto com os Bloods, que se espalhou por várias cidades dos EUA. Stanley foi preso acusado de roubo e de quatro homicídios. Havia problemas no inquérito e ele alegou inocência, mas os tribunais o condenaram à morte.

Passou 25 anos na prisão. A primeira década foi marcada por comportamento agressivo, envolvimento em brigas e tentativas de fuga, que culminaram com um isolamento de 6 anos na solitária. Até que algo mudou. Nos anos 90, Stanley iniciou um processo de autotransformação e se tornou um escritor famoso mundialmente, escrevendo suas memórias e livros para crianças, condenando o envolvimento em gangues. Fez tentativas de intermediar guerras entre quadrilhas, em especial entre os Crips e os Bloods. Foi indicado ao prêmio Nobel da paz e ao de literatura.

Sua vida virou filme em “Redenção”, na qual Stanley é interpretado pelo excelente ator Jamie Foxx. Quem primeiro me falou do filme foi o
Helvécio e ontem assisti à história na TV a cabo. Infelizmente, a exibição
do filme se deve ao fim trágico desse drama da vida real.

Após décadas de batalhas jurídicas, o caso de Stanley chegou à mesa do governador da Califórnia – ninguém menos que seu velho colega de fisiculturismo, Arnold Schwarznegger. O Exterminador negou clemência e temo que a “maioria silenciosa” dos americanos tenha apoiado sua decisão.

Stanley foi executado no último dia 13 de dezembro. Por coincidência, o aniversário de Jamie Foxx, que o interpretou de forma brilhante em “Redenção”.

Car@s,

por coincidência, ontem vi na TV a cabo "Ali", no qual o famoso boxeador é bem interpretado por Will Smith. Também há uma ótima discussão sobre o racismo nos EUA, e sobre a forma mais radical do movimento negro, a Nação Islâmica de Malcom X.

Concordo contigo, Helvécio. A análise de Stanley sobre a relação entre baixa auto-estima dos negros e a violência é brilhante. Grande filme, obrigado pela indicação!

Abraços

Ontem o Exterminador matou mais um, dessa vez era um velho criminoso de 76 anos, surdo, de cadeira de rodas.
