Mychal Bell was released from jail this Thursday, greeted by Al Sharpton he walked out the jail with a smile on his face.
We at Illest Lyrics would like to congratulate Mychal, who hopefully from here on out gets a fair shot.
Though, of course we don’t condone his actions.
Mychal Bell was the last of the six teenagers from Jena 6 to be released after they had all beat up a white teenager.
He has been in jail for almost 6 months.
The juvenile court judge set his bail at 45,000 dollars.
This whole Jena 6 controversy started when some white kids put nooses under the “so called, white tree”.
