Breaking News...bail Denied In Jena Six Case

Bail denied for only Jena beating suspect in jail

Ruling comes day after civil rights demonstration in La. town

JENA, La. - Bail was denied Friday for a black teenager whose arrest in the beating of a white classmate led to this week's huge civil rights demonstration in the central Louisiana town of Jena.
The bond hearing for Mychal Bell, one of the group known as the “Jena Six,” was held this afternoon in a juvenile court in Jena.
Lawyers would not comment because juvenile court proceedings are secret. But John Jenkins, the father of one of Bell's co-defendants, said Bell's bail request was denied.

Bell's mother left the courthouse in tears and refused to comment. A man accompanying her said "denied" as they walked out.
Bell, now 17, is the only one of the six defendants to be tried so far. He was convicted of aggravated second-degree battery, but his conviction was overturned last week by a state appeals court. The court said Bell, who was 16 at the time he was charged in a fellow student’s beating, could not be tried as an adult on that charge.

Bell had been on probation at the time of the beating and remains in jail. The other five defendants were free on bond.
Thousands of demonstrators from around the country converged on Jena on Thursday in support of the six defendants in the case.

why did griffin edit this?

"racism is dead, it died when MLK walked on a bridge and freed the slaves. Now we have a socialist Kenyan president who is not an American and if anyone mentions race they are a reverse racist (while racism is dead, reverse racism is alive and well.) #whattheyteachyouatfox"

Re: Breaking News...bail Denied In Jena Six Case

I pulled out a bunch of coding hooey that copied over with the article and made it hard to read.

Meant to post that (and give cam shit for making a mess ) but someone came in and asked me an actual work-related question.

I suppose I"m not surprised they're holding him given his record. But they're going to make an ugly situation a lot uglier if they're not careful.

Reason is poor propaganda when opposed by the yammering, unceasing lies of shrewd and evil and self-serving men.

Re: Breaking News...bail Denied In Jena Six Case

I was gonna say OH Hellz naw but that was before I read he was on probation.

I didn't know that information before and I wouldn't be surprised if many others, some who actually went to Jena 6 didn't know that as well.

I don't agree with it still.
I just think it's fucked up that OJ Simpson can get bail but this kid can't.

OJ might have killed someone and can get bail.
This kid might have committed a misdeameanor, and he can't get bail.

Do they think us blacks are going to restart to underground railroad to sneak him up to Canada or something?
Sometimes a riot is called for when people just don't get it.
I'm not promoting one but I wouldn't be surprised if one happened.

"Everybody always said I didn't get that job because my wife is white. If you're not strong enough to look through that then you have the issue."

Black head coaches in the SEC=0
Something needs to change.

I heard he had a record but not that he was on probation. This kids bail is the same as the sickos that from West Virginia that tortured and raped this woman for over a week. Makes you say ummh. Anyhow, I'm not surprised, there's no way they were going to let people think that the demonstration was going to change their minds.

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.
