Hofstra sounds like a fine University./s
I noticed one is named Stalin. Wonder if he assumed it or if his parents named him.
18 year old victim. Her parents probably just dropped her off for her first week of college in the past few days.
Well...it’s racism to think it’s not the fault of the Woman./s
Hugh Christopher Newsom, Jr., 23, and Channon Gail Christian, 21, were a couple from Knoxville, Tennessee. They were both raped and murdered after being kidnapped early on the morning of January 7, 2007. Their vehicle had been carjacked. Five suspects were arrested and charged in the case. The grand jury indicted four of the suspects on counts of murder, robbery, kidnapping, rape and theft. One of those arrested, Letalvis D. Cobbins, was convicted on multiple charges including several counts of felony murder. Another has been convicted of federal charges as accessory after the fact to carjacking.
The national news media was criticized for allegedly ignoring the story because the victims were white and the suspects black. This criticism was also fueled by erroneous early reports of dismemberment and mutilations. Most of the original reports with misinformation (reported from a federal deputy after the suspects’ arrest in Kentucky) were later denied by the District Attorney.
One commentator explained that “as bad as this crime is, the apparent absence of any interest group involvement or any other ‘angle’ might also explain the lack of coverage.” Police Chief Sterling Owen IV said that there is no indication the crimes were racially motivated and that the murders and assault “appears to have been a random violent act.” “There is absolutely no proof of a hate crime,” said John Gill, special counsel to Knox County District Atty. Randy Nichols. “We know from our investigation that the people charged in this case were friends with white people, socialized with white people, dated white people. So not only is there no evidence of any racial animus, there’s evidence to the contrary.”
Some commentators have continued to disagree, claiming that such a crime would include a motive of racial hate. Conservative media, notably including blogger Michelle Malkin on her blog and on Fox News’s O’Reilly Factor program, have also repeated this accusation. Prior to the DA’s statement, Newsom’s mother sympathized with the “hate crime” position stating, “It may have started out as a carjacking, but what it developed into was blacks hating whites.” Christian’s father (addressing those who used his daughter’s death to suit their own agenda) appeared ambivalent, stating “[the crime] ain’t about you.”
Any guess on the race of the victim??
Wonder if these thugs received any special scholarships made available by Obama’s mess.
