KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - The families of two young torture killing victims in Knoxville can wear photo buttons of their loved ones or they can sit up front in the courtroom, but not both. **excerpt**
Some background on the case:
They best stay in jail where they are safe.
After they were arrested, Channon’s father paid their bail and came within minutes of getting them released on bail before the cops caught on to what was happening and cancelled there release.
I continue to wait for this story to be covered by the national press but they have pretty much boycotted the the story.
I missed that tidbit - why did he try to pay their bail?
Something tells me this won’t get the media coverage that Zimmerman/Trayvon got.
Probably because he knew they would never get the “justice” they really deserve.
Makes sense to me - I just didn’t know if he was ever on record as saying so.
I would have gladly helped him.
IMO, death by injection is too easy.
I thought this case was relatively old news. What gives?
Victims’ families can’t sit up front with photos
Fox affiliate as per AP
Judge: Wear photo buttons, lose prime seating
Photos of courtroom here.
This is the trial, finally.
I don’t blame the father. Look at his face. I’d be the same way, or worse. They would probably not allow me in the State much less the courtroom.
Sorry, left out the photo link
Would recommend not to hot link the photo. It has some copyright stuff that might cause a problem.
this is not unusual.
lawyers are not allowed to wear neckties which state “guilty” or “innocent” in small print. (there is such a product)
If these two are convicted you don’t want a conviction overturned for something as trivial as this.
(a judge was even ordered to remove a desktop model of an electric chair)
makes my blood boil
What a horrible crime.....If I was a family member I would probably try to make contact with another lifer at the prison and hire a hit on them
To kill them
Good for him
Plenty alice baker or affiliates will do it for him in the joint
The scum bags were tried and convicted several years ago.
The presiding Judge was a scumbag by the name of Blumegard who was involved in a series of illegal and unethical job related acts of misconduct.
Although there was no obvious misconduct in his trying of the these murders the convictions were overturned on general principals and now, in a case of monumental injustice, the families of the murdered couple are forced to go through the whole process again.
The only saving grace on this is that the case seems to overlap the Trayvon Martin ongoing miscarriage of justice/ scam fest .
If there is any justice in this world, someone in the media will contrast the treatment of the absolutely heinous nature of this media self censored case with the media lying and lynching of Zimmerman
I don't hold much hope this will actually happen, but one can pray it does.
Nicholast Stix has good coverage of this and much more
Heinous does not even begin to describe.
It’s really that bad.
The fact the the mainstream media has flat boycotted and self censored any reporting of anything related to this case really is criminal on their part.
The media has crossed the line from being appoligists for black on white crime
to being co conspirators covering up the extent of the problem so mainstream America remains unaware of just how bad things havee become.
I read the details right after the murders were committed and you are right about the savagery. I could not have sat through the trials and if the victims were my kin, I would have had some retribution on the worthless criminals! The local Knoxville News Sentinel has covered the trials extensively.
