Thousands descend on Jena, Bell must have a bond hearing within 72 hours.


A town of 3000 people is currently hosting thousands of protestors. The count varies but at least 10,000 people are believed to be marching through Jena, LA today. A 3rd Circuit Court Judge has just announced that a bail bond hearing MUST be held for Mychal Bell within the next 72 hours. The web is rife with stories of todays march in mostly-white Jena. From an ABC news article:

Thousands of protesters have descended on the small town of Jena, La., for a large-scale rally in support of six black students charged in the beating of a white classmate. They are outraged at what they say is an excessive prosecution of the teens. The district attorney initially had tried to prosecute the students on attempted murder charges. Martin Luther King III, son of the slain civil rights leader, was there and said the scene was reminiscent of civil rights struggles of the 1960s.

MSNBC is showing Jena live all day today. Its great, its fabulous and its righteous indeed! Finally the MSM is paying attention!
