I don't understand what's going on with Jena six. Why are people protesting when 6 people tried to kill another person? I realize that this is a racial issue but if they DID do it, why are people wanting them to be released (I think all but one has been released)? Or is it not confirmed that they did anything at all? What's going on?
All I know is 6 people beat up one, they were arrested and everyone wants them to be free. Why is this? What's the controversy? Clearly I don't know the whole story. Was the dude they beat up just some random person who happened to be under the "white tree" (how stupid!) or was it a racist?
