Not only did these little thugs get away with a hate crime, but they’re profiting as well:
HOUSTON – Just weeks after some 20,000 demonstrators protested what they decried as unequal justice aimed at six black teenagers in the Louisiana town of Jena, controversy is growing over the accounting and disbursing of at least $500,000 donated to pay for the teenagers’ legal defense.
Parents of the “Jena 6” teens have refused to publicly account for how they are spending a large portion of the cash, estimated at up to $250,000, that resides in a bank account they control.
Michael Baisden, a nationally syndicated black radio host who is leading a major fundraising drive on behalf of the Jena 6, has declined to reveal how much he has collected. Attorneys for the first defendant to go to trial, Mychal Bell, say they have yet to receive any money from him.
Meanwhile, photos and videos are circulating across the Internet that raise questions about how the donated money is being spent. One photo shows Robert Bailey, one of the Jena 6 defendants, smiling and posing with $100 bills stuffed in his mouth. Another shows defendants Carwin Jones and Bryant Purvis modeling like rap stars at the Black Entertainment Television Hip-Hop music awards last month in Atlanta.
Here’s the little gangsta thug with the dough:
His mother insists that’s money he earned from his job as a park maintenance worker.
Oh yeah, and here’s a link to the YouTube video of two of the proud little criminals displaying the gangsta version of ‘reparations’:
The usual gang of idiots and race baiters (Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, the NAACP) come crawling out from under their rocks at the mere whiff of a “hate crime” , only against blacks, of course. But no mention of the victim in this case or the motivation of the six black perpetrators.
The victim, for those who are unfamiliar, is 18 year old High School student Justin Barker. His father David, in a 21 September interview, said that his son’s injuries were worse than what has been reported. He didn’t believe the nooses (hung by the High School by unknown pranksters) were the main reason behind the attack, but his son was in the ‘wrong place at the wrong time’.
Yep, any white kid would do.
Barker testified that he had just come out of his high school gym with his girlfriend walking ahead of him on Dec. 4 when they turned to avoid a group of black students.
“I turned my back and somebody hit me, that’s all I remember,” Barker said.
He suffered from a “badly swollen face and temporary blindness in one eye that lasted three weeks. He also said he still suffers recurring headaches since the beating.”
In June, one of the attackers, Mychal Bell 17, was found guilty of aggravated second-degree battery and conspiracy to commit aggravated second-degree battery.
In October, state District Judge J.P. Mauffrey Jr. sentenced Bell to 18 months in the slammer for violating probation, two counts of simple battery, and two counts of criminal destruction of property.
“This matter was unrelated to the December 2006 event at Jena High School, and that case was not even mentioned in the court proceedings,” District Attorney Reed Walters said Friday.
Bell’s retrial is scheduled for December 6, 2007.
He had already accumulated a record before his latest excursion. Matter of fact, he’s been to court three times on assault charges within two years.
The other defendants: Robert Bailey Jr., Carwin Jones, Bryant Purvis and Theo Shaw were all initially charged as adults with attempted second-degree murder and conspiracy to commit the same. A sixth defendant Jesse Ray Beard, was charged in the case as a juvenile. So far, Purvis has been charged with aggravated second-degree battery and conspiracy, A trial date of March 24 was set for Purvis.
Bailey is the next defendant scheduled to face a jury trial. While the trial is currently scheduled for Nov. 26, 28th Judicial District Court Judge J.P. Mauffray Jr. hasn’t yet heard Jesse Ray Beard, who was 14 at the time of his arrest, are unknown as they are being handled in juvenile court. He is back at Jena High School and participating in athletics.
Motion hearings for Theo Shaw and Bailey originally scheduled for Wednesday were continued to a later date.
They’ve gone from being ‘overly prosecuted” to ‘not guilty of anything’ in the lexicon of the perpetually outraged. The lack of accountability for their actions adds one more item to their ‘stupid’ column.
The simple fact remains that the six black punks in question targeted Justin Barker for his skin color.
After reading the comments from their ‘parents’, supporters, and themselves, I will make this prediction: They’re going to end up just like the crapweasels who tried to rob Bernie Goetz on the NYC subway. 4 black teenagers, Barry Allen, 19; Troy Canty, 19; James Ramseur, 18; and Darrell Cabey, 19, thought they could frighten an innocent citizen into relinquishing his money. Turns out they fucked with the wrong white boy.
Their legacy: James Ramseur and Barry Allen continued their “careers” after the shooting. Upon being released from the hospital for the treatment of his gunshot wound, James Ramseur partnered up with another associate and was convicted of raping, sodomizing, beating, and robbing a pregnant nineteen year old woman on a building rooftop in the Bronx. In 1986 he was sentenced to 8 ⅓ to 25 years in prison. Barry Allen committed two muggings after the shooting.
I look forward to the future crimes and subsequent lengthy prison sentences for the ‘Jena Six’.
It’ll read like a ‘let your life be a warning to others’ story.
I can hardly wait.
