Noose Hanger Gets Four Months

Ok, so remember the protest march in Jenna, LA Sept 20, 2007. Remember the white kid who hung 3 nooses on the back of his truck and drove past? He got four months in prison.

Federal prosecutors say 19-year-old Jeremiah Munsen displayed the nooses when he drove past people who had attended a massive civil rights march in Jena on Sept. 20.
Munsen had faced up to a year in prison after pleading guilty in April to a misdemeanor charge of interfering with the marchers' federally protected right to travel.
The marchers were waiting in Alexandria for a bus home to Tennessee. They had been protesting the criminal cases against six black teenagers charged with beating a white student at Jena High School in 2006.



Finally, they do something right.

Such a shame. I know the minimum on hate crimes is more than 4 months. Some parts of the south need to just ahead and break away.

Ok uhm if you are coming to NY please make sure you bring some delicious crabs from Maryland. hehehe
