Alexandria is about an hour from Jena, LA. It served as the staging area for thousands of protesters who went to Jena to demonstrate against the unequal prosecution of the Jena 6.
Authorities in Alexandria, Louisiana, arrested two people after nooses were seen hanging from the back of a red pickup Thursday night. The 18-year old driver was charged with DUI and inciting a riot. The 16-year old passenger is in custody pending charges. The younger kid told police he and his family are in the Ku Klux Klan.
How arrogant do white kids have to be to try to incite a riot with nooses in front of all the brothers and sisters who spent the day at the Jena protest march? These youngsters are fortunate that the brothers and sisters that saw the noose decided to do the right thing by calling the police rather than do what they may have wanted to do ... reach in the truck and slap each of the kids across the face.
Villagers, why do some white folks think that playing with nooses is funny?
