Jesse and Al, as they’re prone to do, served a kernel of truth stacked on a mountain of lies. This is Jason Whitlock speaking and what he has to say is important. Where was the intervention and concern well before Bell and his friends ended up as the Jena 6?
There was a three month span between the nooses in the tree incident in Jena and the attacks led by Bell and his buddies against the White victim. There was no “schoolyard fight” as a result of nooses being hung on a whites-only tree.
Justin Barker, the white victim, was cold-cocked from behind, knocked unconscious and stomped by six black athletes. What you have are two separate incidences and their unrelated.
Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton put their foot in their mouth a-gain!
Never mentioned that Bell’s absentee father returned from Dallas and re-entered his son’s life only after Bell faced attempted-murder charges. At a bond hearing in August, Bell’s father and a parade of local ministers promised a judge that they would supervise Bell if he was released from prison.
Where were the promises and supervision before any of this?
It’s rarely mentioned that Bell was already on probation for assault when he was accused of participating in Barker’s attack. And it’s never mentioned that white people in the “racist” town of Jena provided Bell support and protected his football career long before Jesse, Al, Bell’s father and all the others took a sincere interest in Mychal Bell.
