I know this is old news by now or maybe not. And I know that these girls are not black. I know it, I tell you; however, this makes you ponder a ‘what if’. What if these girls have been black? Hell, the boys of Jena Six were giving life for less, and they didn’t video the shit and post it on YouTube.
Okay, I always start my post in the middle for some reason. Back up, Back up. I’m assuming that all of you good people have heard the story about these eight teens, 6 of which were girls, who lure this other girl over to a house for the sole purpose of beating her down and capturing it on tape. They beat this chick down and then forced her into a car and drove her to another location where they told her if she told the police the next beat down would be even more sever. So not only are they facing charges of false imprisonment and battery, but also kidnapping.
The suspects were identified as 17-year-old Mercades Nichols, 17-year-old Brittini Hardcastle, 14-year-old April Cooper, 16-year-old Cara Murphy, 17-year-old Britney Mayes and 15-year-old Kayla Hassell. Zachary Ashley, 17, and Stephen Schumaker, 18, were identified by deputies as the lookouts.
If you get the chance to see the video, which I could not find on YouTube, it is so very, very disturbing. Who knew that white girls acted like this? You never see this sort of thing on The Hills. Just kidding, and no I do not watch the Hills-but it is disturbing, race notwithstanding. You can hear one of the girls yell to the other one, “watch out for the shelf”, as the other one beats the poor girl in the face (she didn’t want her parents shelve of knick knacks to get toppled over). And from what I can tell from the conversation on the video, they are beating her up because of some bullshit she put on her MySpace Page about not like the girls. Well, hell, I can say why she didn’t like…they kind of violent. LOL. And you wanna hear some more shit. The girl that got beat up was staying with one of the girls that beat her ass up. Yeap, apparently she had been having trouble at home so she was staying with a “friend”. Damn, can you image if she had stayed with an enemy. She’d be dead.
The video, if you get a chance to watch it, doesn’t even tell the whole story (and videos rarely do, for all you cop haters out there). The reality is that she first went into the bedroom of the friend’s house, where she was staying, and was confronted, cussed out, punched and had her head slammed into a wall, which knocked her unconscious. This was done by the 14 year old.
When the poor child awoke she found that she had been carried into the living room and placed on the couch; with 6 little ladies surrounding her. They beat her for a half a hour (Can you imagine). The girls were arrest and bond was set. Sadly, one of the little darlings’ family could afford her bond and she was going to be forced to sit her ass behind bars. Anybody ever hear the saying, “IF you can’t do the time, don’t do the crime”? This girl was said to be the ring lead of the events of that day. However, producers of the Dr. Phil show bailed out the little monster, when they found out that her family didn’t have the money to do so. Of course they did it for the exclusive contract to the story. How shameful is that? Said story has been shelved now that the Dr. Phil show has been called on their bullshit.
But seriously though, these straight haired, hoes beat the crap out of this poor girl, giving her a concussion, as well as damaging an eye and an ear, and numerous other bruises and the last I hear is that they will be put on house arrest, have their internet access monitored and maybe not go to prom. Okay, I made up the prom thing but all the rest if true. No more MySpace and Facebook for these ladies. Nor or they allowed to talk to each other of the victim. Any violation would cause their bond to be revoked. And I read that although the crimes they committed could carry as much as a life sentence, it is speculated that nobody really expects that that shit will happen. As a matter of fact they are saying that lawyers don’t even think the shit will go to trial and all parties involved will find a way to work it all out.
What the fuck? Are you kidding me? Now you know if these bitches and yes I said bitches, had been black…well, if they had been black it never would have made the news, but let’s play that it did. Well, first of all they would be IN jail, not on house arrest. And the fact that they were in jail and being charged as adults for attempted murder wouldn’t have even come to the light until they had been behind bars for at least two to three years. And there would never have been talk about this shit being worked out and not making it to court. What kind of shit is that?
Just reading the shit pissed me off, as yall can tell (‘cause you know I don’t cuss), but c’mon now. Is this fair? Is this justice? Now, I’m not saying that I want these girls do spend their young lives in jail. It just bugs the fuck out of me that I just know that if they had been black all of it would have been handled differently. I just know it!
See, this is the main reason why Flavor Flav has his own sitcom…because the world is just not right! Damn it!
Let me just say that it couldn’t have been my child. A brother would have been marching up to somebody’s house, bat in hand, and gun in waistband. I ain’t lying. Of course, if it had been my child she would have had her ass at home; I don’t care what kind of problems we were having as a family. That’s just me.
