Member of Jena 6 up for assault

Why Bryant? Why? The Associated Press is reporting that a “defendant in the Louisiana “Jena Six” case was arrested on suspicion of slamming a student’s head into a bench at his new school in Texas, police said. Bryant R. Purvis, 19, was arrested on a charge of assault causing bodily injury Wednesday after an altercation at Hebron High School. It began because Purvis believed a student had flattened his tires, Sgt. John Singleton said.”

I’d just like to quote Bill Duke in “Menace 2 Society”…”You know you dun’ fucked up now, right? You know that right?” When it comes to sentencing African Americans, Texas is nothing to play with. The article notes that Bryant was upset about the alleged victim messing with his car. Tsk, tsk…has this young man learned nothing?

  1. I wasn’t fanatical in my support of them in the beginning. It was more anger towards their schools and courts. They really make it difficult for me to feel for them at all anymore.

    I co-sign with you on that Gorgeous. I posted on an entry regarding the fact that those boys should get some counseling quick in order to learn not to handle all of their conflicts with physical violence. I basically predicted that if they didn’t they would continue to handle their problems this way and would end up in trouble again. Hate to say “I told you so…”
