Pardon the Jena Six

We continue to encourage villagers to sign the Free Jena Six online petition.

However, Pursuing Holiness correctly noted that politicians focus their efforts on registered voters in their districts. So, in addition to signing the online petition, perhaps it is time for each of us to contact our Senators and our Representative. Tell them about the Jena 6 and demand that the Justice Department investigate.

For those villagers living in Louisiana, contact Governor Kathleen Blanco and ask not just for the pardon, but for LaSalle DA Reed Walters and the Jena police to be investigated.

This issue is going beyond the afrosphere. I understand that the NAACP is getting involved. That is a good thing. Hopefully, the pressure will begin to be felt by the powers-that-be in Jena, LA.

Well villagers, what say u? Any thoughts on the current state of affairs for the Jena Six?

I agree about going straight to our senators and reps.
