I didn't know that the Jena 6 were casual and career crimminals...I thought they were high school students.
They are high school students, 5 of whom who were charged as juveniles with attempted 2nd degree murder.The one charged and convicted as an adult and awaiting sentencing, Mychal Bell, had been previously convicted of four violent crimes.
A casual criminal is one who responds impulsively to external conditions, accidental circumstances, sudden temptations or bad influences and has no previous record of serious crime - as opposed to an habitual (or career) criminal who has a record of previous serious crime(s).
I have a sinking feeling that you may be equating their blackness with thugness.
That's quite a leap of logic, Mrs. J and an incorrect one. What did I say that brought you to that conclusion?
