This is NOT a question about MJ!! Jena 6

Did anyone notice that they wraped up the case? I know you have to look hard for it through all the MJ news. The boys got 7 days (yes, days) probation and all but 1 had to pay $500 in court cost. The one who didn't was the boy who couldn't make bail. Anyone else think they got off easy? BTW all of the Jena 6 are in college. The white boy in working in the oil feilds. So the boys who beat this kid up not only got their legal team paid for but also their education, while the victim works a blue collar job and doesn't get to go to college. Am I the only one who thinks that's a little backwards?

  • I saw it on HLN this morning. For an "attempted murder", yes I believe those boys did get off quite easy...
