Megan Williams - Guardian Requested By Prosecutor

While many are debating the stupidity of Micheal Baisden, the ignorance of the NAACP and Jena 6 Families, one of the two biggest human rights and justice issues of modern day Black America continues to go unreported, uncovered, and seemingly unimportant to many old guard and new guard members of in the civil rights/human rights community in America - the Megan Williams and Dunbar Village case.

You see, the Meagan Williams and the Dunbar Village rape and tortures could have ended as the barefoot corpse of Laura Nelson did back on May 25, 1911 in Okemah, Oklahoma - Thank God it didn't.

If either or both ended up like Laura Nelson did, then the NAACP, Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton and the rest of the civil rights and human rights community would be taking pictures at the WV capitol and the Florida Capitol asking for a national inquiry into white racism and lynching and black male gang violence. But, because Megan Williams and the family living in Dunbar Village are poor black (economically) folk, it appears that no one except the AfroSpear and a few local media outlets are even paying any attention to the Megan Williams case of the Dunbar case.

AAPP says: Get this, The prosecutor in the Megan Williams case says he filed a motion for the court to appoint a legal guardian for Williams because the people around her may not be acting in her best interests. This report is pissing my the hell off! How dare this prosecutor attempt to pull this family apart! Megan Williams is attempting to heal. Her family is supporting her the best way they can. How dare the prosecutor say the mother, is not being a good mother, and i not working in her best interest.

Also, as reported in the Sunday Gazette - Logan County Prosecuting Attorney Brian Abraham, who filed the motion Wednesday, said the 20-year-old woman needs someone to look out for her during the coming prosecutions of six people charged with torturing, raping and kidnapping her.

“I filed a motion for a guardian ad litem out of concern that the people in her social sphere and the people around her may be allowing things, media events, that are not in Megan’s best interest or in the best interest of her case,” Abraham said Thursday. “And she may not have a full appreciation or understanding of how this impacts her case.”

A guardian ad item is normally appointed in cases where minors are involved, to protect the legal interests of the minor, he said.

“I have done it in the past with adults with some mental incapacity,” Abraham said.

The prosecutor said that despite the move, he still believes Williams would be a competent witness against her alleged attackers.

“I am not concerned about her competency to testify but I do have concerns about her managing her own affairs,” he said.

Abraham said he has concerns about some of the statements Williams has made in the media about when she first arrived at the trailer of Bobby and Frankie Brewster. Carmen Williams, Megan’s mother, told him that statements from one such interview were taken out of context.

“Obviously she was down here earlier that summer,” Abraham said.

Before a march last Saturday in Charleston, the prosecutor said he thought Megan Williams’ appearances in the media could only hurt the case against her attackers. He repeated that on Thursday.
