Social Justice - Jena 6 Update

Mychal Bell has been freed on $45,000 bail. Jena D.A. Reed Walters has agreed not to appeal the higher court ruling that held that Bell should have been tried as a juvenile.

Yes. Now if only we could have a positive identification on the body found at 4 am today in Calumet City as anybody OTHER than Nailah Franklin, I will sleep a peaceful sleep tonight.

Incidentally, I'm well aware that several news sources have confirmed that the body is that of Nailah but I urge her well-wishers to take heart. The body was too badly decomposed for police to positively identify anything, even the victim's race. They are working with dental records to determine the victim's identity. There is still hope.
