Obama Demands Fairness in Jena 6 Case

Obama Demands Fairness in Jena 6 Case
Obama Demands Fairness in Jena 6 Case

Senator Barack Obama made the following statement today in response to the Jena 6 case.

"When nooses are being hung in high schools in the 21st century, itís a tragedy. It shows that we still have a lot of work to do as a nation to heal our racial tensions. This isnít just Jenaís problem; itís Americaís problem."

"There are a number of signs that the system is not working in this case. Itís a problem when criminal charges are brought against some students for fighting, but not others. Itís a problem when a public defender doesnít call any witnesses. And itís a problem when a prosecutor decides to try teenagers as adults for a school fight, a charge that could leave them in jail for the majority of their lives. That is why I join my colleagues in the Congressional Black Caucus in calling on the judge to consider all the relevant factors and calling on the District Attorney to drop the excessive charges brought in this case. And I, along with other members of the CBC, will continue to monitor this case closely."

"Going forward, we have to fix our criminal justice system. Whether itís Jena 6 or Genarlow Wilson, itís long past time for us to admit that we have more work to do to ensure that our criminal justice system is fair. We must ensure that both victims and defendants can receive equal justice under the law, regardless of race, wealth, or other circumstances."

Before you speak to me about your religion, first show it to me in how you treat other people; before you tell me how much you love your God, show me in how much you love all His children; before you preach to me of your passion for your faith, teach me about it through your compassion for your neighbors. In the end, I'm not as interested in what you have to tell or sell as in how you choose to live and give.
