Los Angeles — The person found most responsible for the brutal beating of truck driver Reginald Denny during the 1992 Los Angeles Riots, Damian “Football” Williams has spoke out on this 20th anniversary of the Uprising. Williams was sentenced to 10-years for his role in the beating which included throwing a blunt object at Denny’s face which was followed by a brief dance.

Williams was acquitted of attempted murder charges but was found guilty of mayhem against Denny and of misdemeanor assaults on others, based on what was captured on video.

Williams, then 19, and a member of the Eight Tray Gangster Crips (ETG) admits to making “many mistakes and errors.” He was released from prison in 1997 but in 2000 he was accused of participating in the murder of Grover Tinner, 48 and former 74 Hoover, who ran a crack house on Gage Ave in South Los Angeles.

Williams and his accomplice, Tyrone Killingsworth, a former Shotgun Crips member from Gardena were both found guilty in 2003 for their roles in Tinner’s death. Williams was sentenced to 51 years in prison even though he was not the trigger person and Killingsworth received 130 years in prison.

Jasmyne Cannick interviewed Williams who is currently serving his time in California State Prison, Calipatria.

          How you going to take the day game away from non blacks? Where you going to get it from? Blacks don’t control any country that exports it. If you were smart you would let them keep the d game and teach blacks to get an education so they don’t need the game but your to dumb for that. Mexicans run the game the biggest black dboys get their sh*% from a Mexican

  9. Eddie V

    This kid had so much potential, and he wasted it on gang life. Let this be a lesson to all of you young men growing up in the jungles of L.A. Remember, you always have options, never take the easy way out.

    • Ben Dover

    I work at the Calipatria prison and D.W. is in protective custody for many reasons. He has been sexually blankaulted and gang raped more than once. He has learned that he is not as tuff when it is 5 against 1 and he does not have the five. I also found out when someone came to visiy him that he was a star on the freshman team because he scored 5 touthdowns. Big deal. He dropped out of school and was never a star. Very sad that the newspapers have given him the satisfaction of being called a star when he was nothing more than a freshman.

    • JMak

      I hope what you wrote is true. I dont understand why this cowardly criminal is almost heralded and regarded with a level of prestige as an activist. He’s a racist who attacked a man purely because he was white then blankaulted him while he was helpless. Then participates in a murder shortly after being released from prison. People like that dont deserve to be a burden on the tax payer and swift capital punishment should be an option.

    • BlackPowerRyder

      Sergio Alvarez f#@$k you spic. I’ll wait until you get off shift and merk your blank right outside of your job,or follow you home. You pigs are not hard to touch,especially you C.O.s Get sniped.

SOMEONE SHOULD chick SLAP YOUR MOM FOR NOT FLUSHING YOU DOWN THE TOILET WHEN SHE sh*% YOU OUT!!! I’LL BEAT YOUR SOFT chick blank THEN PISS IN YOUR EAR AND SMACK YOUR BF YOU LITTLE SOFT vagina PUFF!

    • Craig "Creeper" Tussell

      You know dam well you don’t really work there. Quit yo lyin! And DW was a real star unlike your sorry blank going home everyday to jerk off to playboy!

  11. ChrisJones

    Who cares if dude was a superstar in high school, dudes always doing that dumb s***. If you didn’t make it to the NFL, then your high school career is a cute little anecdote. Regardless he didn’t do anything with his life so I hope he’s enjoying reminiscing on his long gone football shine while he sits in prison

  12. doug keehner

    too bad you didn’t ki*l your colored thug rival before ruining a productive, law abiding
    white man’s life. I truly wish we could meet some day so I might crush your worthless empty colored nappy haired head with my hands. you’re not worth a brick. I did my time at nsp, wish I had a friend in ca. my people would love to dance with you, boy.
    your friend,
    doug
