LTTE: Jena 6

Sep 302007

I just wanted to comment on your article you wrote about not freeing the Jena Six.

I don’t think you comprehend the problem all that well.

The issue with Mychal Bell is that he was tried as an adult. He was still 17 and even though he does have a violent history he should not have been tried as an adult.

As far as freeing the Jena Six goes I don’t think they mean free them with no penalty it means give them a bond that is not absurd.

Mychal was “freed” today but he is still facing criminal charges in the Juvenile System.

This whole situation is out of control – the white students that hung the nooses should have been expelled from school and charged with a hate crime, but were they? No.

I know you are not for what they did but the town of Jena needs to teach their children race does not mean anything.

I just wish America could learn to accept people for who they are and not what color they are. Judge people on their character rather than color.
