The criminals pictured above car-jacked, then raped Christopher Newsom, cut off his penis, then set him on fire and fatally shot him several times while they forced his girlfriend, Channon Christian, to watch. An even more cruel fate awaited her.
Channon Christian was beaten and gang-raped for four days by all of them, while they took turns urinating on her. Then they cut off her breasts and put chemicals in her mouth… and then murdered her.
Knoxville (WVLT) – The District Attorney General of Knox County announced the list of charges facing now five suspects in the double murder of Channon Christian and Christopher Newsom.
The District Attorney General Randy Nichols is not saying whether or not he will seek the death penalty, but he does say the State will seek conviction for all charges filed in a 24-page indictment from the Knox County Grand Jury.
Lemaricus Davidson, 25 , faces a total of 46 charges.
Letalvis Cobbins, 24 , faces a total of 46 charges.
George Thomas, 24 , faces a total of 46 charges.
Vanessa Coleman, 18 , faces 40 Tennessee state charges.
Eric Boyd, 24 , also arrested in connection with the fatal car jacking, only faces federal charges as an accessory after the fact.
The silence of the news media is deafening. I wonder why. Why hasn’t this received National coverage as the Duke ‘rape’ case did where three innocent white men were hung in public for a year although there was no evidence against them?
Oh, that’s right – these victims are white.
Why hasn’t the FBI been called in to investigate this as a hate crime?
Oh, that’s right – the victims are white.
Think about it, if a white radio shock jock uses the phrase ‘Nappy headed’, it gets 2 weeks of constant news coverage.
The murder of a black honor student in Chicago gets the attention of the president.
But if a young white couple is tortured, raped, and murdered – in one of the most heinous crimes in memory – and the perpetrators are blacks, nobody is going to hear about it.
That’s the double standard we live under – a standard imposed by a hypocritical culture that calls itself “liberal.” So much for transcending race in the age of Obama.
