      Just when you thought it was over, more drama unfolds in the ongoing Jena Six case. The family of Justin Barker, the Caucasian student allegedly beaten by six African-American classmates in Jena, Louisiana, has now filed a civil lawsuit against the teens’ parents and the local school board. The suit also names the Jena Six teens Mychal Bell, Bryant Purvis, Carwin Jones, Robert Bailey Jr., and Theo Shaw, as well as an additional student said to have been involved in the attack.

      The 18-year old Justin Barker and his parents claim in the suit that seven students from Jena High School attacked him on Dec. 4, 2006, as he was leaving the school gym. He was allegedly knocked unconscious and repeatedly stomped by the group of seven students. He required emergency medical treatment afterwards. According to the suit, the attack left Barker with some extensive and permanently disabling injuries.

      Earlier this week, one of the Jena Six defendants, Mychal Bell, struck a plea deal with the court and pled guilty to battery in the attack. The other five teens, who will face similar criminal charges in the case, are awaiting trial.


  1. The funny thing about this is you had to know it was coming. Whats even funnier than this is that at least one of the guys that beat this guy up is on myspace showing off the money that he got from all attention JENA SIX got. Hope he took those pix down. Stupid negros with money. This white boy up here is a RACIST CRACKER, but he will get more money than all of them negros everybody feeling sorry for. Racism aint goin nowhere bitches

  2. They should of KILLED that WHITE TRASH. How would you feel if that shit was on the other end and it was him and his friends beating up a nigga, he probably would’nt get much time as the BLACK BOYS DID. Hope he is scared for life. BLACK FOLKS 4 LIFE BITCH!
