When I read the article, I asked myslef what the heck he's doing going to school in Carrollton, TX, if his mother lives in Alexandria, LA.

Then, I saw this, "Ms. Jones said that after the “Jena Six” incident, she sent her son to Texas to live with his uncle, Jason Hatcher, a Dallas Cowboys defensive lineman."

Ah. I suppose Mr. Hatcher has legal custody... isn't that required to put a kid in school?

Thats only the begining of what we will see of these innocent young men .I'm willing to bet in the next 5 years 1 or more of the 6 will have killed someone or have been killed .The backs are crying about the justice system being unfair,I think the blacks are being unfair to themselves.We all live under some type of pressure .Does that give anybody the right to be violent ? Lets see how the whites get blamed for this one!

CHEERS for Al and Jesse. They have been proven right. According to the logic brought into Af. Am TOPIX by Trolls, each of the boys is a potential repeat offender. So far, only one MAY HAVE repeated. That means Al and Jessee were 83% right in their assessment of the Jena decision.
...
Twisted minds come to twisted conclusions. Virtually every post above represents the psychotically twisted.
...
Here are the facts. In the United States--even in Texas--being charged with a crime does not necessarily mean you've committed a crime.
...
Assuming the most negative scenario, which is that the youth attacked another youth, there is clearly no logical connection with prior events. Why? Prior complaints had to do with the severity of the sentence. As a juvenile, the court records are ordinarily closed. Even legally, there my be no connection.
...
Allowing both theories: a. the charge is accurate, and b. the youth is destined to become a repeat offender, at this time we still don't know enough about the circumstances to arrive at a conclusive judgement concerning what happened in Texas. Remember, only after the Jena case was reviewed by a Louisiana State Court was it determined that the the Jena judge had acted inappropriately when sentencing the youth.
...
Finally, following the example of the United States, there are times when violence used in self defense is necessary.

You are absolutely right. The photos of the "victim" show only red marks (fingers) on his neck and the scrape across his forehead where his head was alledgedly shoved into a bench for this obvious one-on-one self-defense conversation with Purvis. And, it's only been a year, right? One out of six ain't bad, is it?

I dont know what color he was..BUT..ONCE AGAIN!!IT DOESNT MATTER!!!...No human can go around beating up on people...I think it is SICKENING that they are getting made famous by this..The BET awards??..wth??? they are not famous..they didnt do anything "good"..If a white person was accused of a hate crime ..then got a spot on TV with a group of white people cheering them on..WHEWWWwwww..It would be BAD! There'd be marches everywhere! This just needs to stop..Jesse Jackson is just adding fuel to the fire and he's making it okay to act with hatred and violence towards the opposite race...Hmmm...I thought that was what he's against..OH!!ONLY when HE thinks it's appropriate..OK!..Guess that makes him god!

People, please don't group all blacks together. We come in every educational and ecomonical levels; some good, some bad. Some of us live in the ghetto and live off the "system", but most of us are middle class Americans that pay taxes and votes. I think the media focus more on the negative; therefore, we all are treated like criminals, or second class citizens. I am black, but I don't complain or feel oppressed by "the man". I understand that every man is responsible for his/her station in life, but sometimes bad things happen to good people. That's life. Newsflash - No! We are not all dumb, lazy, tapp dancers, rapp stars, welfare mothers, fathers that walk away from our families, thugs, Aunt Jemiamas, or Uncle Rufus'. Please let MLK's dream live and judge the person for the content of their actions rather than the color of their skin. I'm, surprised, amazed and please to see that at least half of America have trust in Mr. Obama. I have been mistreated by both blacks and whites in the pass, but I refuse to hate either. When you hate someone, you become that person's prisoner until you forgive and turn that hate to forgivness or indifference. I Love America and wouldn't think of living anywhere else. When we are at War with another country, we become brothers; banning together to beat the common foe. Why can't we live like brothers during peace. GOD BLESS AMERICA

Yes, the victim was a 19 year old white boy that, I understand, shouted racial slurs at the 6 blacks boys. It went downhill from there.

That is not correct. The boy stood up for another boy who had placed a noose on a tree in the courtyard.
At the time it was not thought to be inciting anything. In fact, another black boy put it around his neck and stuck his tongue out. But it escalated from there. You can ask Mychal Bell about it, when he gets out of jail.

Well, whoever is at fault, I know America is a sadder place because of all of this! I love America, but hate racism.
