Skip to comments.National Media's Refusal to Cover White Couple's Murder (snopes confirms)

OK, so let's create a level playing field here. I have not even heard of this on CBS, ABC, NBC or any of the cable news services, even FOX NEWS. OR in any of the Newsrags or other publications. Read this and weep.
Bet you $20 you did not hear this on the national news.
The animals pictured below 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!
Where be the Revs Al and Jesse? Are they providing counsel and help to the families of the victims?

By Matthew Sheffield | May 15, 2007 - 08:16 ET The sudden force that the liberal press brought to bear on the falsely accused Duke lacrosse team has been curiously absent on a much more grisly crime committed against a white couple by a group of black youths.
I saw this first on newsbusters.org and verified it on Snops
Is Snops like Snopes?
I spell it Schnapps
What is this “Snops” you’re taking about”
Is there any good reason why this was not on national news? I can’t think of one.
Horrible!! Sounds like these scumbags must’ve studied terrorists’ torture techniques. Too bad they can’t be brought to the woods and just plain shot! Uh—Jesse, Al??? Anyone, anyone? Oh, that’s right, Frick and Frack are too busy going to places like Jena, La. and defending black kids with criminal records. Trashing up a small town with water bottles and food wrappers provided by the Red Cross, no less.
Like I’ve been saying... The only justice is vigilante justice.
WHERE IS THE SUCK UP LIBERAL MEDIA? WHERE IS AL SHARPTON OR JESSE JACKSON? COWARDS ALL OF THEM! HYPOCRITES ALL OF THEM! I SAY WE BOYCOTT EVERY STATION AND THIER SPONSORS FOR THIS ACT OF COWARDESS! This shows you who’s side they are on. and we, the suckers continue to watch thier despicable programing and patronize thier sponsors. We are the fools!
If I’m not mistaken the prosecutor in this case is not going to charge the defendants with a hate crime charge because they were friends with some white people.
I’ll have Snops brand Schnapps, please. :)
I’ve been following this for months. Je$$e Jack$on has been busy with more important items. He can’t pad his pocket with this terrible crime - it’s real.
There were about 4 or 5 copies of this post back in May
It won’t get reported, because there weren’t any tapes to destroy and by the way just look at those white kids! ! Do they or don’t they look suspicious.... just who wears a baseball cap that way and look at her hair it ain’t got no weave, she must be an odd ball.(/s). In all seriousness, if these ‘’people’’ are found guilty, they should be water boarded for an hour at least each day till they get to meet the devil
Don’t focus on the article, shoot the dyslexic messenger!
After all these earys I thought you know by now, I am crushed you still don’t recognized em!
You are welcome!:)
I recall that this murder was covered by the media. I have seen these photos before.
Here is one article:
George Geovonni “Detroit” Thomas, 27, faces a total of 46 charges. Thomas was indicted on 16 counts of felony murder growing out of the rape, robbery, kidnapping, and theft of Christian and Newsom, 2 counts of premeditated murder, 2 counts of especially aggravated robbery, 4 counts of especially aggravated kidnapping, 20 counts of aggravated rape, and 2 counts of theft.
Lemaricus Devall “Slim” Davidson, 25, (b. June 13, 1981) faces the same 46 charges as Thomas. Davidson had also completed serving a five-year sentence in Tennessee on a previous felony conviction for carjacking and aggravated robbery on August 5, 2006.
Letalvis “Rome” Cobbins, 24, (b. December 20, 1982) also faces the same 46 charges as Thomas. In 2003, Cobbins was convicted of third-degree attempted robbery in New York state. He and Davidson are brothers.
Vanessa Coleman, 18, was arrested by police in Lebanon, Kentucky. She faces 40 Tennessee state charges. Coleman was indicted on 12 counts of felony murder growing out of the rape, robbery, kidnapping, and theft of Christian and Newsom, 1 count of premeditated murder (of Christian only), 1 count of especially aggravated robbery (of Newsom only), 4 counts of especially aggravated kidnapping, 20 counts of aggravated rape, and 2 counts of theft.
Further, Eric DeWayne “E” Boyd, 34, was arrested in connection with the fatal carjacking, though not indicted by the Knox County grand jury. Still, Boyd is charged in federal court as an accessory after the fact for helping the suspects evade the police. Later, Boyd was accused by Thomas and Cobbins of rape and murder, and a search warrant was obtained for his DNA. The accusations have not resulted in charges.
The four suspects indicted in Knox County will be tried separately, at trials scheduled between May and August of 2008. Davidson has also been indicted for a second robbery which was committed after the murders. District Attorney Randy Nichols announced in December of 2007 that the state would be seeking the death penalty for Cobbins if convicted.
Boycott the lying MSM. They are nothing but a propaganda outlet for the DNC and ACLU.
I make typos all the time. :)
