Jena Six Bell back in Jail
Posted by: McQ on Friday, October 12, 2007

The cause celeb for the revived 'civil rights' movement (also known as the "keep Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson employed and in front of the cameras" movement) has been sentenced to 18 months in jail for violating probation. Mychal Bell was ordered to jail for violating his probation concerning 2 counts of simple battery and 2 counts of criminal destruction of property with the attack on Justin Barker, December 4th of last year.
A judge decided the fight that thrust a teenager into the center of a civil rights controversy violated his probation for a previous conviction and ordered the boy back to jail, the teen's attorney said.

Mychal Bell, who along with five other black teenagers is accused of beating a white classmate, had gone to juvenile court in Jena on Thursday expecting another routine hearing, said Carol Powell Lexing, one of his attorneys.

Instead, state District Judge J.P. Mauffrey Jr. sentenced Bell to 18 months in jail on two counts of simple battery and two counts of criminal destruction of property, Lexing said.

"We are definitely going to appeal this," she said. "We'll continue to fight."

Bell had been hit with those charges before the Dec. 4 attack on classmate Justin Barker. Details on the previous charges, which were handled in juvenile court, were unclear.
Apparently, from what I've read, this isn't at all the first time Mychal Bell has seen the inside of a courtroom or a jail. While I agree that the charges initially brought against him in the Barker case were excessive, I think it should be obvious to everyone that Bell is far from the innocent and wronged little angel some would like to tout him as.

I'm going to be interested to see how the race lords react to this turn of events. Sharpton has already weighed in:
Sharpton reacted swiftly upon learning Bell was back in jail Thursday.

"We feel this was a cruel and unusual punishment and is a revenge by this judge for the Jena Six movement," said Sharpton, who helped organize the protest held Sept. 20, the day Bell was originally supposed to be sentenced.
Yeah, well, Al, sometimes a cigar is just a cigar. I'd be interested to hear Sharpton's explanation as to why what Bell did to Barker wasn't a violation of probation and shouldn't receive the attention of the court. Sharpton, however, is sure this is an act of "revenge" by the judge.

Stay tuned.

i wish i could give Sharpton a piece of my mind on this. Id love to see him try to call me a racist on account of charges that happened before the incident. I HOPE he would, it would point out his own personal absurdity of existence these days.

The best part of that article is when the boy’s father whines
“He’s locked up again,” Marcus Jones said of his 17-year-old son. “No bail has been set or nothing. He’s a young man who’s been thrown in jail again and again, and he just has to take it.
Well, yeah...

Usually when you are sentenced, there isn’t bail. Is his father really that ignorant?

And yeah. He just has to take it. That’s what happens when you commit a crime.

And it gets "worse" for them...
Bell’s parents were also ordered to pay all court costs and witness costs, Sharpton said.

“I don’t know what we’re going to do,” Jones said. “I don’t know how we’re going to pay for any of this. I don’t know how we’re going to get through this.”
Yes, generally the guilty folks get to pay fines and court costs. Deal. If it’s a hardship, perhaps you should have endevored to not raise a violent, preditory criminal who violates his probation.

Just a suggestion.

I don’t know if the term has been used by anyone else, but I’ve described Sharpton’s job-description as "rage-surfing" since I think it exactly describes what he does.

He scours the horizon for a suitable growing swell of rage, paddles out, readies his board and rides/exploits the rage-wave as far into the beach as he can manage.

Then he scours the horizon for another one.

This kid isn’t a "cause celeb;" but only for you and the people who have totally missed the point. The pronouncement of Al Sharpton as passing your black litmus test, only cuts it for you. It is not necessary to state any facts here, because that wouldn’t prove your understanding of the protest about Jena 6 either.

Did I speak the truth, because this is one of the few comments of mine you have responded to. I don’t know your mind, but someone accused you of being a race baiter once and I believe that to be true. Why is it your calling to call out Al Sharpton or Jesse Jackson or any black? You think you are going to lose power; that if you don’t the blackness is going to shroud and strangle you, or could it be your way of starting a race war, rabble rousing? You don’t know the minds of black people or most of your post about blacks wouldn’t bring out your racist posse.

I normally don’t respond to the comments of obvious bigots. But I thought, maybe this time ...
You don’t know the minds of black people or most of your post about blacks wouldn’t bring out your racist posse.
But as usual, you prove my point.

I just wondered if you really had anything of worth to contribute and, as I should have guessed, the answer is "no".

Do us all a favor VRB, take your racist rants elsewhere.

Only to your like minded posse do your comments appear to be true. If you check I have had more to say and spoke with out referring to race, but somehow your posse finds a way.

VRB also said, merely three comments back:

Honestly, VRB, if you think that constitutes "speaking with out referring to race", that merely shows you are so far embedded in your race-based views that you can’t look at the world without them anymore.

Oh, and
like minded posse
but your thoughts are utterly original, shared by no others, I suppose.

Jeremy Bowers,
Check at QandO. JGW found one comment just not all of them. It really isn’t worth the search. My intentions are not to change minds, but just to call a spade a spade and break up this love fest.

My point is proven. McQ washes his hands and all his handmaidens come out to prove him right.

Well, in that event, Bruce, I question the idea of the charges being excessive. I pointed out at the time that this wasn’t the guy’s first brush with the law. Personally, because of that questionable past, I can’t blame the prosecutors for aiming high with this guy. This was not another Mike Nifong... it was prosecutors honestly doing their job, and I think their perception was correct.

.....
It would seem also that this is been borne out by the facts that have come to light subsequently. Facts, which one would suspect, they knew about when they laid the charges in the first place.

Whatever else this case may have been, this was not racism on the part of the community, or of the prosecutors.

Nice to see the truth finally out. Too bad they had to rip up a community to do it. Also too bad that by the time the truth made it out, the cameras and microphones had already followed Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson and their ilk out of the room, and onto the next case of "racism" to be milked.

This an insult to all that have been in the civil rights movement.

This is why I know you know nothing of why black people were there in Jena to protest.

This was uncalled for in order to discuss the facts of Mychal Bell’s case.

You all have appointed those two to be the representative black person, so that you can deride and trash all black people. So that anything a black person says about race appears to be a falsehood. You do it in this way, so that you can make our presence invisible and no threat to your power. Then you have the nerve to think you wont be challenge. Calling me a racist is just a substitute for calling me the N word and both those words have no play.

STFU. I already posted one of your racist comments. Should I go back and post more? No one here has lumped a race of people together except for you. Take your victimhood and cry somewhere else.

No, they appointed themselves to that position. And the MSM enables them by running to them every time there is a "civil rights" issue.

And, lately, "civil rights issues" have included the "civil rights" of black strippers to falsely accuse white lacrosse players of rape, and the civil rights of six black thugs to jump a white kid and pound him to unconsciousness.

Perhaps Sharpton and Jackson should choose their publicity stunts cause celebres more carefully.

V of K,
Lets just say whites folks have anointed them, be it McQ or MSM. And you all can’t see passed them, that is the what I am speaking of. Without them, how would be able to speak about race? Certainly you couldn’t see injustice for the mantra here is that there is no racial injustice. It has be declared to be so, by the bigots on the right.

JWG,
If I were the victim I wouldn’t speak up here, I would feel too inferior to speak my mind and to you on your crap. You know if I were to rewrite that statement I should write "victim" after "racist."

Ask Congressman John Lewis or Rev. C. T. Vivian if they would agree with you.

Note he says the revived ’civil rights’ movement.
