Update on the case: Charges reduced for another ‘Jena Six’ member

Monday morning, Robert Bailey Jr. pleaded not guilty to charges of aggravated second-degree battery and conspiracy to commit the same. A trial date of Nov. 26 was set, although Bailey’s attorney, Jim Boren of Baton Rouge, said he planned to seek a continuance as he needs more time to prepare for the case.

All together, six teens known nationally and internationally as the “Jena Six” — Bailey, Jesse Ray Beard, Mychal Bell, Carwin Jones, Bryant Purvis and Theo Shaw — were originally charged with attempted murder following the December incident at Jena High, which left student Justin Barker unconscious and bleeding with facial injuries.

Bell was convicted in June of the reduced charges and denied bail last month after four prior juvenile adjudications were presented in court. Charges against the others charged as adults have been reduced as they’ve been arraigned. Information about Beard’s case is unknown, as he is the only one charged as a juvenile.Also Monday, the Rev. Jesse Jackson joined Bell’s parents — Marcus Jones and Melissa Bell — for a juvenile proceeding regarding his charge of conspiracy to commit aggravated second-degree battery. – click here for more

    That white racist bull perpetrated against the Jena Six made me so mad, at one point I was thinking we’d need 1968-style Marches on Washington to correct the injustice. Glad to see that finally, people are rallying to their cause.

    The white racists are quaking in their boots b/c they know that African-Americans, Muslims and other people of color will soon be the majority in Michigan and in Deep South states such as Louisiana, Alabama and Mississippi. And it burns them up.

    Already, we’re seeing more and more African-Americans and Muslims (most of us Muslims here also African-American) leave states where we’re dispersed and powerless– states like Wisconsin, Ohio, West Virginia (we *know* what happens to us in West Virginia as those white thugs recently showed), Pennsylvania, Missouri, Idaho, Arizona, New Mexico, Iowa, Delaware and California where we’re badly outnumbered and too weak– to move to Michigan, Louisiana, Alabama, Mississippi, Georgia and some parts of Illinois.

    Dispersion is the enemy– there’s strength in numbers, and concentrating ourselves in these states, our historical core, is the key to gaining a majority and resulting political control. And when we have political control there, we’ll no longer have to put up with being treated like dirt, humiliated, being second-class citizens in states where we’ve lived for so many centuries. We’ll be able to stand up and tell the white racists that they don’t own us, support our own businesses and finally earn for ourselves the respect we have long deserved. I’m proud that the Blacks of Louisiana are converging to help the Jena Six like this, we need to see more of this solidarity.

    Michael Baisden, where are you?? This seems to be the next story that needs to be told. I have called CNN, Starr Jones, MSNBC about this over a weeks ago, and ……surprise…….nothing………None if s will have justice until all of us have justice.
