While some in the media will portray the Jena 6 as all about Mychal Bell and how much he deserves to be punished, we shouldn’t forget the other injustices which have been occurring in the past couple of weeks:
Gary King Jr, of Oakland CA shot in the back by a police officer while fleeing and was left to die on the sidewalk for 15 minutes. http://www.indybay.org/newsitems/2007/09/23/18449224.php
Pleajhai Mervin, a 16 year old girl who had her wrist broken by a security guard for not picking up all of the crumbs of a cake on the ground. He told her “hold still nappy head”.
And of course, Megan Williams, tortured in West Virginia. Prosecutors in her case are not pursuing hate crimes charges. http://aapoliticalpundit.blogspot.com/2007/09/megan-williams-was-sexually-assaulted.html
