NPR's Renee Montagne talks with death row inmate at San Quentin Prison, Stanley 'Tookie' Williams. Williams was convicted of killing four people in the late 1970's, while he was a leader of the Crips, a gang he helped found. Now he's a nominee for this year's Nobel Peace Prize for writing children's books that steer kids away from crime.
