A Few Thoughts on the Jena 6 Travesty,....

As the Jena 6 debacle continues to gain strength (much like a hurricane, it thrives on hot air), the TrekMedic has a few thoughts on this whole mess:

For a school to have a "White Tree" is just plain stupid,...

For the same school to chop it down compounds the stupidity,...

To have students hang nooses from said tree is grossly immature,...

For Louisiana NOT to have a law against that speaks volumes about is leadership (remember, this is a state government that let people drown while waiting for the Federal government to come bail them out after Katrina)

However, for six teenagers to beat another teenager unconscious is STILL a crime. Al Sharpton can cry all he wants about it, but assault is assault.

That the victim was beaten unconscious, but later released from the hospital to attend a school function. It doesn't diminish the severity of his injuries but it speaks volumes about Louisiana's health care system! Someone needs to bring it closer to late-20th Century standards (snark).

And like a similar case, the Mumia Abu Jamal case here in Philadelphia, the further away you are from the story, the further away you are from the truth. And that includes local MSM newspaper columnists, as well.

Repeat a lie often enough and it become the truth!

Amen, Trek. Excellent post - I couldn't agree more.

Being an idiot is not a reason to get assaulted, period! If I beat someone up everytime I disliked what they said or did, damn I'd be in jail right now.
