Genarlow Wilson gets released from prison

<p><a href=""&gt;;/a&gt;&lt;/p>

<p>Its about time. For those of you who haven't followed the case, Genarlow was a 17 year old black boy who was given 10 years in jail for having oral sex with a 15 year old girl who also serviced 5 other young men at a high school party on camera. Had the 2 engaged in regular sex, the charge would have been a misdemeanor with a maximum of 12 months prsion time.</p>

<p>The Georgia Supreme Court ruled 4-3 today that the sentence was cruel and unusual.</p>

<p>Here's a real victim of racism--forget the Jena 6.</p>

<p>Yup -- this was all about race. Though it makes me wonder: if he were white and she were black... would the case have unfolded as it has?</p>

<p>Looks like there's already another thread on the subject.</p>
