Mychal Bell’s Parents, Others Seeking His Release Set to Meet with Gov. Kathleen Blanco
Date: Wednesday, September 26, 2007By: Sherrel Wheeler Stewart,

The parents of a jailed Jena, Louisiana teen and civil rights leaders are scheduled to take their pleas for the release of Mychal Bell directly to Louisiana Gov. Kathleen Blanco in a Wednesday meeting at the state capital.
Bell, one of six black youths dubbed the Jena Six, has been locked up for about 10 months in connection with a fight with a white classmate. That case attracted thousands to the central Louisiana town last week in what was one of the biggest civil rights marches in recent history.
On Tuesday, Bell’s mother, Melissa Bell, met in Washington, D.C., with members of the Congressional Black Caucus and Al Sharpton. Today, Melissa Bell is to be joined by Sharpton and Martin Luther King III in the meeting with Blanco.
Texas Rep. Sheila Jackson-Lee, who organized Tuesday’s meeting, told, “We must now apply pressure in the right places.” Blanco has said that Louisiana’s constitution, which provides for a separation of powers, prevents her from intervening in the case at the time. But, Jackson-Lee said, Blanco "must render justice, and not excuses.”
On the Michael Baisden show, Al Sharpton was quoted as saying that state of LA was basically "holding Mychal Bell" hostage. Seeing as how LA has no reason to hold Mychal Bell. The charges were overturned, and bail is not posted.
We really are "...ONE nation, under God. With LIBERTY AND JUSTICE, for all." NOT!
This is where faith in God comes in. We can't believe the report of man. When God opens a door, no one can close it-and when He closes the door, no one can open it. This will be a closed door in Mychal's life soon enough. It is in the hands of the Lord.
You betta recognize...this is real life. The life and plight of the black individual in the United States.

Please know...threats of hell and bible scriptures are futile-look at your church if you don't believe me! Get your 'body of christ' in order and then come talk to me.

Yours in Reason, Bria :)
