So not a problem. Just wish my brother was still here to blog his outrage--because he did outrage well :>.

There's a group on Facebook (and the creator accidentally spelled it as Gena 6, but the 2900 members have obviously forgiven her for this :>). I posted on the group's wall:

If the Jena 6 had been charged with battery or assault, there's not a lot anyone could say about that, because the legal definition of those crimes do aptly describe the event that took place. But to jump up and charge these young black men with attempted murder and conspiracy to commit murder is ludicrous and outrageous! Now if the white teen had suffered injury to his internal organs; if he'd suffered any broken bones, especially to his arms, legs, and neck; if he'd outright lost an eye (you saw that WNBA game footage!); if there'd been any weapons used in the confrontation, especially a gun or knife or a blunt instrument; if he'd suffered so much injury that he'd been left in a coma or suffered a stroke or brain damage--THEN we could talk about someone who was in danger of losing his life. Considering it WAS six on one and the one suffered absolutely NONE of the critical injuries named above, how can an attempted murder charge POSSIBLY be justified?
