Default And know we know the rest of the story!!!

This is an editorial from the D.A. prosecuting the Jena 6 kids, this is not close to what the press would have believe happened. It tells you of the time line in which things occured and how none are related to each other. Just like the media to stir the pot.

I wonder if all those who are protesting and demanding the release of the thugs will change their minds and apologize for acting like fools, Nah

Make your mind up guys. Were the Duke guys guilty because the procecutor said so? Was the prosecutor pure as the driven snow in that case?

Racist case with a lot of right and wrong on both sides. Locals, including those in authority, let the racism ride for too long and when it blew it blew ugly. Now they're trying to sort the mess out, but it's being complicated because all the usual suspects are sticking their noses in where they are not needed or wanted.

The facts really don't matter to the race whores. They have to stir the pot for job security.

Good one Dollars - why don't you enlighten us all with your analysis of what happened, the event, subsequently, the decision to try as adult, etc. etc. I would be interested in that. While the good prosecutor rightly observes he must apply the laws that are on the books - the current issue is around the decision to try these defendents as adults. He is awfully quiet on what Louisiana law says about that and on why he chose to try as adults. Especially since they decised they COULD NOT try those who had placed the nooses as adults.

Personally if I was to be sitting having a beer with this legal mind I would be more focused on the years leading up to this (21 century years by the way) and what he saw and was reacting to.

For anyone that is interested - really interested, read here.

I like Wiki. It's structure allows for balance.
