I just went to a few more sites to find out more about this incident.
The outcry isnt so much about the fact that these 6 kids are being charged. The outcry is because there is discrepancy between how the white kids who commited crimes before this particular incident were charged, and how these 6 black kids are charged.
Supposedly one of the black kids was beat up by a white guy on the friday before the 6on1 event. That guy was charged but Im not sure if he did any prison.
As well, those 3 kids who hung the nooses didnt get penalized...not adequately at least.
So now, people are saying: If you didnt do anything significant about those crimes commited by the whites, why are you doing something this drastic about crimes commited by blacks???
Which in my opinion is stupid. If I were to dumb it down, hundreds of thousands of people are basically saying to the legal system:
"You did nothing about the other crimes...Well, keep on 'doing nothing'!! Keep ignoring it!!"
Maybe they should be saying: You did nothing, now correct your wrong! EVERYBODY black or white should pay for their crimes. So if these 6 are going to prison for what they've done, the 3 who hung the nooses, the guy who broke the beer bottle on the black guys head, and all the others, should get their proper punishment as well.
just my opinion.
