    Default Why Have Chris Newsom and Channon Christian fallen through the cracks?

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Channon..._Newsom_murder

    You may ask why I am posting a wiki link instead of a creible news source. No one is covering this story all that shows up is allot of very violent very anti semitic whte supremiscist stuff. Why isnt this story on all the news channels? For nearly a year we had to sit through a Duke rape case which turned out to be nothing at all merely a prosuctuer thinkning he could get famous by nailing a bunch of inherntly evil rich white men agianst the poor defenseless black stripper. Now when two people are bruttaly raped murderd and disfirgured not only is it not on the news it isnt even being charged as a damn hate crime! I can bet my soul that if 5 whites did this to 2 blacks the storm that would indue wouldnt leave us for years and we would be made to feel guilty once agian. Fortunatly the two victims were white so there story can just go away. What kind of double standard is that? What has America come to when we cant treat everyone equally? When exemptions have to made so we dont have to deal with things! Sometimes I hate my country

    Found one http://www.wbir.com/news/regional/st...?storyid=41276 ha they dont give any details

    There, but for the grace of God, goes John Bradford

    My aim, then, was to whip the rebels, to humble their pride, to follow them to their inmost recesses, and make them fear and dread us. Fear is the beginning of wisdom.

    I am tired and sick of war. Its glory is all moonshine. It is only those who have neither fired a shot nor heard the shrieks and groans of the wounded who cry aloud for blood, for vengeance, for desolation.

    I would wonder why five African Americans were held responsible.

    Either it was an abuse of power, I mean, five for a crime?
    or...
    a racially motivated attack.

    Have you just been dumped?

    I ask because it's usually something like that which causes outbursts like this, needless to say I dissagree completely.

So not only is there no evidence of any racial animus, there's evidence to the contrary.
    It's a sad story, but I highly doubt it was racially motivated.

    Some things are supposedly mere speculation, that's what I heard at least. I think it was a hate crime, it wasn't just rape, a woman joined the fray after all. Oh, and torture. Poor Shannon, gorgling bleach sounds pretty nasty. It's funny Strike, here across the pond it did make the news. Well actually it isn't that funny, poor guys. I can't believe this didn't even make the local news in the US, pretty hidious, and Manhunt 2 isn't even out yet!
