...and finally....

Conclusion:
To Reed Walters: Charge these young men with the crimes of which they are guilty.
To The Parents: Hold your children accountable for their actions.
To The White Community: Stop claiming,“There is no racism here” or “We have no problems here.” Live by the Golden Rule: Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. If twelve percent of our community is feeling estranged, we should listen to their grievances.

To The Black Community: If you believe these six black students are innocent, we can “free the Jena Six” today by having the black students, who thirty witnesses testify attacked Justin Barker, step forward and take responsibility for their actions.

To The National Media: Please, get it right. Report the facts. Let them take you to the truth. Stop making Jena, Louisiana, a national scapegoat for America’s sin of racism.

To America: Judge not unless you be judged. You will be judged by the same measure you judge this little town. Until you know the facts, reserve judgment. Do not believe everything you see on TV.

That is some of the most IGNORANT shit I have ever read. Saying it doesn't count cause it was juvenile. The fact that it happened means he is habitually assaulting people. This is not his first offense. He is a criminal..And his family is a joke. Nice job though, he turned out to be a great kid.

You need to cease apologizing for crime committed by the black students at Jena. While the noose incident was outrageous, the felony assaults committed by the six were equally uncalled for! They need to be punished! Also, please tell those two racists and hypocrites, Jackson and Sharpton to buzz off.

I'm referring to the clan and affiliate sites whose members seek out the articles about cases like this and plaster their parochial nonsense.

Yeah and it was uncalled for when a group of whites beat up a black student and the gun incident at their local gas station where a white male threatened the lives of three unarmed blacks. The outrage is over the fact that only one group gets punished.

There were no charges or arrests in the above mentioned incidents. Whites can beat blacks and there's no crime committed, but a white kid that is antagonizing a group because of skin color incites a fight and they want attempted murder charges? Yeah right, that's ridiculous.

Um...buddy, I believe that poster was being facetious, or sarcastic. Calm down. The white people in that town habitually attack blacks, but there's no paper trail because the police, DA, and judges will not arrest and prosecute the guilty whites. Wake up, that's why they're mad.

The young man that was attacked by these animals was not at all involved in any of the incidents. The attack occured THREE MONTHS after the noose incident and he was targeted randomly.

How about the young man at Meade HS in AA County who was attacked by a group of blacks while they chanted racial epithets and the principal covered it up?

Your true reality is truly warped.

Another stupid article in an increasingly pathetic and irrelevant newspaper.
You're equating offensive but Constitutionally-protected behavior (the placement of a hanger's noose) with assault and battery.
Too many people in this country are living under the mistaken perception that the Constitution prtects them from being offended, or from having their feelings hurt. Guess what? It doesn't! And if your feelings are hurt, or if you are offended, you can't use that to justify assualt and battery.
I hope the "Jena 6" have the book thrown at them. I hope they're all punished for their illegal behavior, and end up in jail.
Good grief, I'm sick of this crap!
when you grow up in the big city you learn don,t let your mouth write checks your behind can,t cash.that white boy could have been writng bad checks.yeah you can say what you want but you better be prepared for the consequences.

You are such a typical black idiot. Beating a person unconscios isn't wrong? I hate to pick on the mentally handicapped,but you need to learn how to spell before you post a comment.You blacks are "trash", not the beating victim.
