The families of the Jena 6 defendants are getting money sent to them by the public for their defense, so much so that the families are allegedly now driving Jaguars, Mercedes, and Envoys, according to information provided by victim Justin Barker in a statement given to Crosstar website editor Richard Barrett, who traveled to Jena to interview the Barker family and correct for the lack of publicity given them. Click HERE to read original statement, which is copyrighted by Barrett.
And the picture of Jena 6 defendant Robert Bailey Jr. in the upper left corner shows it all. Bailey posted this picture of himself on his MySpace website (which was taken down while I was constructing this post) with a bunch of money in his mouth to rub it in. While the picture has since been removed from the website, it was removed too late, and is now being posted all over the blogosphere even as we speak. According to Barker, the families can afford to spend the money on bling-bling instead is because their lawyers are representing them pro bono.

Meanwhile, Justin Barker is still understandably upset over the hypocrisy of the situation. He feels like the Jena 6 are getting paid for being criminals. He says that while he's got to work every day, his attackers are just "chilling out" with "sleeping-pants" on. The reason he works is because he is still serving a one-year suspension from school for having a gun in his truck, although it was in plain sight and he had carried it for years. So Barker not only feels like he's been singled out, but also that he's being dumped on. Even though he is the real and only victim, he's being treated by the establishment and the blacks like a perpetrator.
Barker also reports that he's almost completely recovered from the attack, but suffering from a bleeding ulcer, which he states is attributable to the fact that he got kicked after being knocked unconscious. But his faith in God makes him believe that we can win.
Here's an interesting MySpace post from a local resident named Karen. She implies that Michael Bell and Robert Bailey are chronic troublemakers. What's even more interesting is that she claims that it was the arrival of 200 Katrina refugees that really destabilized the community. Typical - the Katrina Nigger Trash destabilized every community where they relocated. I've exercised personal editorial license and broken this into paragraphs to enhance readability:
It's my home town..The truth about the whole matter is Michael Bell and Robert Bailey are two of many that are trouble makers in the town. The black community will not speak out (unless related to the 6) Bell had 4 other charges against him before the Dec ATTACK.They terrorized their own community. Did yall know that his momma is driving a brand new Jag and Bailey's mom got a new BMW????Robert Bailey's myspace page has him laying on a bed covered in $100 bills captioned "pay day"$400,000 has been raised from people who care about the Jena 6 and the money is being spent Bell's mom is the NAACP chairman for Jena chapter.the 4 other moms are wanting some of that money too. Michael Bell has to answer for the probation violations too, I don't care IF Justin Barker Did call Michael Bell a NIGGER How often do you think he was called a CRACKER ASS. Its stupid words. That was a beating and it would have continued had it not been for someone laying over Justin.
IF shoot at someone and miss....The intent is still there right? Well, as for the burning of the school...Bell is a football star he had colleges scouting him. His records at school with all the probation's and negative marks was a big problem SO set the principles office on fire burn up the records in there. They didn't mean for the whole building to go up in flames though! The truth has yet to be told in the media. Jena's head cheerleader and co captain are black. The homecoming court has black girls on it. Is that racism? Predominately white school that votes for these types of positions? that should count for something. .Jena is One town with 2 communities ( by choice) There is nothing to fight over we shop at the same stores and eat at the same restaurants we watch ball games in the same bleachers and share fairs, howdy neighbor days.
At school in the square you congregate towards your friends. It's 2 breeze ways with the same old benches.. blacks by the auditorium and whites by the gym (by choice)...When it gets cold you go in the gym and wait for the bell to ring every year that is when the fights get started because now the students are all crowded together in a uncomfortable way. (Toes are stepped on.. so to speak) . Hurricane Katrina brought 200 people to Jena. Some of them were gang members. They planted a few negative seeds in the soil of this town and it turned some good boys into trouble makers. It's been hell ever since. They pull random people over in their cars and beat the shit out of them, that is gang initiation. (Beat up a stranger and you are in the gang)!
Jena's head cheerleader and co-captain are black. The homecoming court has black girls on it. Is that racism? Predominately white school that votes for these types of positions? that should count for something. There is just much more that what the media wants you to know.
This is what Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, and Martin Luther King III came down to Jena to support. And to think that LDS Church President Gordon Hinckley actually agreed to see Sharpton when he came to Salt Lake! Boy, did Sharpton pull the wool over President Hinckley's eyes.
However, additional controversy has arisen since Barker gave his statement to Richard Barrett. According to a story published in the Jackson (MS) Clarion-Ledger, the Barker family is now claiming they feel they were "duped" by Barrett. Barrett, who described himself to a reporter as “pro-majority,” said he spent Wednesday evening (September 19th) with Justin Barker and his family. Barrett said his goal was to publicize Barker’s side of the story. He also said that Barker and his family are in no way affiliated with his organization and that he is not representing the Barkers in any way.
But the Barkers said they feel a little betrayed, nonetheless. ”He led us to believe he was just down here to find out Justin’s part of the story,“ David Barker said of Barrett. ”He said he was going to the rally just to see what was going on“.
David Barker said Barrett never gave them the impression that he was involved in a white-supremacist organization. Barker said he specifically asked about affiliations with organizations such as the Ku Klux Klan. Barrett allegedly responded "No, I’m a lawyer that goes around trying to help families that can’t help themselves", according to Kelli Barker.
