Thanks for the links. I went through all of them. Chicago sun and Sun Journal I found to be a little biased in their description of the events but the Jena Times timeline made things a little more clear.
After reading all of it, I feel this whole outcry is uncalled for. Each person who commited a crime, should be punised according to the crime they commited. The guys who put up the nooses got off easy. There isnt much detail the "fight" or "beating" that took place at the barn, nor is there any detail given on what happened to the person who was charged, so Im not sure if he was properly punished, but from the readings, it seems like it was not. Right there, those two incidences are the real injustice. Those 2 incidences should have been handled in the proper way.
In my opinion however, these 6 kids (jena times says they were 7?) should be punished. I think having all these celebrities join this cause is nonsense. They really chose the wrong incident to protest about. Thats what I think. Unless the "fight" at the barn/private party was a multiple man on one 'beating', this 6on1 event is by far, by far, the worst crime commited during this time line. So I think the punishment should be worse.
Maybe Im missing something still though so I apologize if I disagree with you. So, Panthony if you could tell me your point of view maybe Ill understand it better.
Again, to me it seems like all these protestors/demonstrators/celebrities are sending a message saying:
"You did nothing about the white crimes, so do nothing about the black crimes neither"
Let me know what you think Panthony. Im curious because you've been following for longer than me. Thanks
