Found this Black America Web article interesting

Yet if BET wants to use its award shows to trot out black people who have been wronged by the criminal justice system, I’m all right with that. I’m all right with that because there are lots of those people to go around – and many with cases more compelling than that of the Jena 6.

One of those people is Michael Anthony Williams.

Williams is 43 now. Like the Jena 6 he lives in Louisiana. Like the Jena 6 he was a teenager when he was accused of a crime; he was accused of raping and beating his high school tutor.

Unlike the Jena 6, though, he did wind up in prison – Did 24 years hard time in the notorious Louisiana State Penitentiary at Angola, in fact.
