Jena 6

"Three white students were suspended but not criminally prosecuted. LaSalle Parish District Attorney Reed Walters has said he could find no state law covering the act."-AP

are we sure he COULD not find, or preferred NOT to find?

The first irrational and ridiculous action occurred with the nooses being hung from the tree. That was not done by African Americans, that hatred was done by Caucasians and 3 days and probation is NOT nearly enough punishment. I would call into question the hatred level of those district leaders as well! They should have the proper education to know the difference between a prank and a hate crime. That is what THAT was..a hate crime and to the best of MY knowledge (unless Louisiana law is different) is a criminal offense...if should be!
