Well looks like Jena 6 is now become a duo. Can't wait to see how the great American Justice System handles this one.

OK, let's not get ahead of ourselves on this one. Did the dad attack the 16-year-old SPECIFICALLY because he was black, or because he was with his daughter PERIOD? It's inexcusable either way, but I hope that no one just jumps to the conclusion that this is DEFINITELY a hate crime based on initial facts, before the investigation is completed.

If he was beating the guy for being with his daughter, did he beat her too? Sounds like this poor guy was keeping company with the wrong kind of trailer park trash.

Why don't they call in the Feds when a white gets beaten up by a black?

OutfieldJack you did not know that it could only be a hate crime that needed to brought to the attention of the FBI if it were a White on any other race crime?

If I found my daughter with a black boy or white trash boy and there was a hint of more than just friendship it would not be a pleasant sight.

I think everyone should have a mate their same race...PERIOD.

Why is that? What is your rationale? Are you not familiar with Moses and his black wife Zipporah? If you want to stay within your race, you have every right, but your daughter has a right to choose. You would be a BAD father if you dictated who her mate should be.

Do you all think there is a separate heaven for blacks? What are you going to do if you get to heaven and all of those blacks you hated greet you at the gate? Or are they not worthy of your heaven?

If you all can think, you need to think beyond your sorry Redneck lives and see a more global world and a more global heaven.

This should not be headline news. Anything for a story I guess. This kind of thing can blow up. We need to be smart news crew.

I REALLY THINK WHAT THESE MEN DID IS COMPLETLY WRONG. I THINK THEY SHOULD BE PUNISHED AND CHARGE WITH WHAT THEY HAVE BEEN CHARGED WITH. THESE MEN ARE BEATING A CHILD AND REGUARDLESS OF THE RACE HE IS STILL A CHILD. THE FATHER SHOULD HAVE CONDUCTED HIMSELF IN A MORE PARENTAL WAY (SO TO SPEAK). SO MAYBE HE DONT KNOW HOW TO CONTROL HIMSELF OR HIS DAUGHTER.

Everytime a black and white person gets in a fight, does not mean that it is a hate crime.Most of the time it will just be a fight between two AH'S. However, when there is a white female involved and some redneck is protecting her honor, it is more than likely a hate crime. I learned a long time ago that there is nothing that gets the man more upset than the thought of a black man doing the deed to ms ann. Sure things have changed and people are screwing across the color line on a daily basis, but some folk still have a big problem with it.Growing up in the 50's, I was told not to even look at ms ann. When things changed, I screwed ms ann every chance I got up to the time I got married.It is going to happen, so get use to it. Probably happens in your own family with the young folk.

Kudos to the man who broke the fight up. The first victim was able to get away because of him and presumably call or get someone to call 911.

If everybody don't stop all the hating, they will not make it to a global heaven. The Bible says that no sin is going to enter into the kingdom. That includes hate and racism. Hell is for these types of people. Let's clean it up folks!

The article didn't say she was dating a black guy. Has it ever occured to you that they could've been doing homework, or maybe he sat down to talk to her about the problems with her boyfriend? or maybe he is her best friend in the whole world. No one said she was dating this guy.
