Jena 6 The Verdict is IN

Posted by alhavakia on June 27, 2009

After all this time, the Jena 6 case against the remaining five defendants has finally come to an end. Initially, charged with murder and attempted murder, the case made national attention after the first conviction. The remaining five defendants plead “No contest” to a charge of Simple Battery. None of these defendants will have to serve any time under this agreement.

Had it not been for “Southern Poverty Law Center” stepping in, these boys would have surely been convicted and forgotten, as do so many poor defendants.

While there are many perps out there who are deserving of life prison sentences, we must guard against the type of practices some law enforcement use to obtain convictions. Top that with the incompetence of public defenders and more often than not, justice is elusive.

Many thanks go out to groups like “Equal Justice Initiative” and “Southern Poverty Law Center” for their dedication to justice for indigents.

May you, the reader, be fortunate enough to never need their assistance.
