Barack Obama makes statement in support of Jena 6
Cross-posted from Brave New Films Blog.
Barack Obama has become the first presidential hopeful to make a statement regarding the Jena 6. I applaud him for giving this crisis of American "justice" the attention it deserves.
Here's an excerpt:
Going forward, we have to fix our criminal justice system. Whether it’s Jena 6 or Genarlow Wilson, it’s long past time for us to admit that we have more work to do to ensure that our criminal justice system is fair. We must ensure that both victims and defendants can receive equal justice under the law, regardless of race, wealth, or other circumstances.
I have called for other candidates to do the same. Maybe then actual justice can be served. I wonder if the other Dems will talk about this now?
One Love. One II
