Thousands rally to support students indicted for attempted murder

Support violenceIn what should have been a non-issue, thousands of blacks protesters gathered in Jena, Louisiana on Thursday to show support for the “Jena 6”, six black teens charged in the beating of a white classmate. Thursday was the day Mychal Bell expected to find out his punishment for his alleged role in the beating. “This is a march for justice. This is not a march against whites or against Jena,” said the Rev. Al Sharpton, a loud and annoying black, anti civil rights activist and one of the protest organizers.

Sharpton called Jena the beginning of the 21st century civil rights movement.

“[Rev. Martin Luther] King went to Selma. That wasn’t the only place you couldn’t vote. That was the point of action,” Sharpton said. “They went to Birmingham. That wasn’t the only place we didn’t have public accommodations. It was the point of action. “Jena is a point of action for the Jenas everywhere,” Sharpton said.

At 8 a.m. ET, a Louisiana state patrol officer said five tour buses were being allowed into the town every 12 minutes. The controlled influx of buses resulted in having buses lined up as far as could be seen in both directions on Route 49, reported CNN.com‘s Eliott McLaughlin, who was riding on a bus that had traveled from Los Angeles for the event.

Demonstrators are protesting what they say are excessive criminal charges and bond amounts for the teens. One of the teens, Bell, who is 17 years old, has been in prison since his arrest in December.

“It breaks our heart to see him handcuffed and in leg shackles,” Sharpton said. “But his spirit is high. He has said that he is very encouraged to know that thousands are coming to this town to stand up for him and his five friends.”

The teens were initially charged with attempted murder after they allegedly knocked out Justin Barker — a white classmate — while stomping and kicking him during a school fight on December 4, 2006. Barker was taken to a hospital with injuries to both eyes and ears, as well as cuts. His right eye had blood clots, said his mother, Kelli Barker.

LaSalle Parish District Attorney Reed Walters urged the world not to forget the victim in the case. “The injury done to him and threats to his survival have become less than a footnote,” Walters said Wednesday. “This case has not, never has been about race. It’s about finding justice for an innocent victim, holding people accountable for their actions. That is what it’s about,” he said.

Five of the black teens were charged as adults. Bell was the first to face felony charges.

Of course the main cause of the problems and protests has been everyone’s least favorite and most annoying political-wanna-be, Reverend Al. Alfred Charles “Al” Sharpton Jr (or just Sharpton) has run unsuccessfully for elected office on multiple occasions. Sharpton ran for a United States Senate seat from New York in 1988, 1992, and 1994. In 1997, he ran for Mayor of New York City. If you see some sort of pattern, it’s that Sharpton seems to march better than he runs.

You all know Sharpton of course, he’s the guy that seems to always be marching yet is somehow still fat. Sharpton has also spoken out against cruelty to animals in a video recorded for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA). He also joined in a group statement against animal cruelty, during the Bad Newz Kennels dog fighting investigation. In fact, if you are an animal then Sharpton is your biggest supporter… and now back to his supporting the “Jena 6”.

This is not what Reverend Martin Luther King stood for, and I can’t imagine he would ever condone the beating of children of any race.

Beat Whitey
When is a hate crime not a hate crime…

  1. Learn the whole story before you post ignorant comments, please:

    The case began with nooses hung from a tree at Jena High School nearly a year ago. Racial tension escalated in the town, which is 85% white, after the nooses were hung. The black students led a protest after noose incident. Nearly every black student at Jena High School stood under the tree. The town district attorney, Reed Walters, came to the school and told black students, “Stop making trouble. I can make your lives disappear with the stroke of a pen.”

    One weekend last December, two black students were beaten by a group of white students. Later, a group of black students were threatened with a shotgun by a white former student. Whites were not punished for the noose incident or these other incidents, but the following Monday when a white student was beaten up by black students in a schoolyard fight, six black students, the Jena Six, were arrested and charged with attempted murder.

    No, Martin Luther King would not advocate beating any children, but he wouldn’t advocate unequal prosecution, either.

  2. While Sharpton is not my favorite African American leader, and while of course you are completely entitled to your opinion, I think you’ve missed the point entirely. Sharpton was not the main cause of the problem. Unequal punishment was the problem. There is no doubt that the young men involved in this fight should be punished, but let the punishment fit the crime which by Jena School Board rules is a 3 day suspension. Yes, Justin Barker was the victim in this fight, yes he was stomped and kicked and knocked out, but was well enough to attend a pep rally that same night. What about the attacks that were made on the young black men involved in this fight? What about the young black man that was jumped by 5 young white men, who were never so much as chaged with disturbing the peace? Why, because they weren’t strong enough to knock him out? What about the young white man that approached 3 of the young black men with a shotgun threatening them. Were they wrong to defend themselves? Yes, they rushed him and whooped his ass, as would anyone else if they had the opportunity. But they, the ones being threatened, get charged with assault, disturbing the peace, and theft because they didn’t give the gun back to him. Does that make sense? No, it wasn’t Sharpton that started the trouble. The mental segregation of this town started the trouble. A school board that overlooked a blatant act of racism of students hanging nooses from a tree started the trouble. A DA that felt he was within his right to threaten the black students of the high school started a problem. A justice system that doesn’t believe in equal punishment started this problem. Neither Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson or any of the protestors in Jena today started the problem, but best believe, they’re damn sure going to fix the problem.

  3. 3 days for attempted murder would be an appropriate punishment, this was a savage beating not a couple of kids fighting in the schoolyard. I was unaware that the district attorney should have been using the school policy on suspensions as opposed to the case law to determine punishment.

    And Al Sharpton is going to fix this problem or any other one? (SEE Tawana Brawley or Duke Lacrosse players, and the list goes on) Exactly what part of the world has he made better spreading a cult of victimhood and entitlement?

    I would like to see one tenth of the participation and passion involved with this incident directed towards those who need help so desperately.

  4. I wonder if 5 white guys serverely beat up 1 black guy, would they even be charged? Let alone go to jail? There is too much racism going on. When are you white people going to stop being racist? It’s still happening in the U.S. it’s happening in Canada. Except in Canada they keep it quiet.

  5. Amen, the Canadian Mounted Police travel by dog sled around the country using that forget everything gizmo from the Men in Black movie to cover up any racism. If it weren’t for paranoid tinfoil heads like you the world would never know about the vicious Canadian Klu Klux Klan that has lynched and murdered thousands. Thank you so much for turning this even more into some giant government conspiracy theory involving, especially a Canadian one for God’s sake.

    If 4,5,6 or just one white kid beat up one black kid this bad the punishment should be the same regardless of color.

  6. I usually just sometimes enjoy the writing on this site and though I can name several occasions where I was laughing out loud at the stories, this isn’t one of those times. Though I do agree that Sharpton has a better chance in areas that are not relating to holding a public office, he is a supporter for African Americans. Now if only someone could show me where “Africa America” is on a map of the world.

    The problem with the “Jena” situation is that people are not being treated equally and that is just not what America should be about. For instance, my illegal neighbors (Mexispics) who snuck across the border fair-and-square should get the same health care as Nikki and Olivia and myself, assuming we are all paying into a system that others are stealing from. Oops, I’m off subject now.

    Because of the obvious racism displayed in Jena, this whole story is being exploited for something that it should not be. The story is about kids attacking another kid. If the kids were smart enough then they would realize they are living in a biggoted town and would know to fight with their intelligence and not turn towards violence, “Violence is the last refuge of the incompetent” – Issac Asimov.

  7. The african american kid at the center of this case “Mychal Bell” had four prior adjudications — juvenile court term for conviction — for violent crimes, according to court records. So his punishment was just, this was not an honors student on his way to an ivy league education and curing cancer who saw something on a tree and lost it one day. This kid was a thug regardless or race and should get what he deserves, which is jail time – not a 3 day suspension.
