From the Daily News article linked above:

>>The troubled teenager accused of stabbing WABC newsman George Weber during drug-fueled rough sex is a 16-year-old Satan-loving sadomasochist with a knife fetish.
John Katehis, who is just 16 and lives in East Elmhurst, Queens, posted pictures of himself on MySpace.com with various blades - including one he held against his neck. He also issued a chilling warning.
“If you disrespect me then I will f-——g break your neck,” he wrote.

The nationally syndicated Curtis Sliwa commented about Weber the other night; I believe Weber was a regular
newscaster during Sliwa’s former show with Ron
Kuby

"Young man"? I thought 16 year olds were juvenile children.

I guess, like the “N” word with blacks, only blacks can use it...and in “hate” crimes, only “gays” can murder “gays” without consequence.

The “hate crime” garbage is just that, an excuse to push the Marxist agenda further down our throats. (Bad analogy).

Do you think he had a great screaming for mercy voice?

All twisted jokes aside, what the hell was this guy doing looking for “violent sex” especially with a 16 year old male?

I wonder if he was against prop 8?

So he was killed while trolling for violent pedophile sex with underage boys.

There goes any sympathy I had for him.

Thank God he didn’t use a GUN. At least he didn’t violate the Sullivan Act. He probably knew how much trouble THAT would have caused him.

Bottom line? You do stupid, stupid sex stuff and you could get snuffed.

He worked locally in the Allentown for awhile. The local media was talking about this horrific murder of "one of our own" earlier. Since the real story has emerged, nobody seems to want to comment.

Sounds to me like he was into raping underage boys. I'm sure there are many places where 16 is below the consent age.

I yahoo-ed “Allentown PA newspaper” and did find this article

http://www.mcall.com/news/local/all-weber-murder-suspect-032509-cnap,0,709605.story

>>NEW YORK - Police have arrested a teenager in the brutal slaying of veteran radio news reporter George Weber.
New York Police Department spokesman Paul Browne says the 16-year-old from Queens was taken into custody late Tuesday night in Middletown, N.Y. He was arrested Wednesday and will be charged as an adult.

>>Weber worked at WAEB-AM in Allentown from 1983 to 1985.

>>Browne says the suspect “made statements implicating himself in the homicide.” The victim apparently allowed the teen into his Brooklyn home after they met through Craigslist.
Weber’s body was found Sunday. His ankles were bound, and he was stabbed about 50 times.

>>In addition to his work in Allentown, Weber worked at WABC in New York for 12 years as the on-air reporter for popular shows such as “Curtis and Kuby.” He also had worked at stations in San Francisco, Los Angeles, Denver and Pennsylvania

Such a weird story. I am not familiar with this man but read numerous good comments and positive remarks about him in the local New York articles. I guess you never know who has a dark side. When he found out the kid was 16, he should have bolted out of there — unless he knew and didn’t care, I guess.

Was it known that he had this “side” to him or is this a shock to local NYC’ers?

The kid had a profile on a cruising site showing off his knives and a nice bottle of absinthe -

An obvious question.....where was the kid's parents....did they wonder about his 'knife' collection and plethora of Satanic paraphernalia and T-shirts?

I think it’s a perfect analogy.....along with getting reamed by the Marxists via higher taxes and trillion-dollar “”bailouts”” for their crooked compadres.

I visualize us, tax-payers and conservatives, getting screwed both ways and simultaneously from these commie criminals.

I think it’s time we give them a “thrill” for a change. Reciprocity, and all that.

NY Post
http://www.nypost.com/seven/03252009/news/regionalnews/brooklyn/teen_held_in_weber_slay_161247.htm

Apparently there’s a YouTube vid also where the murderer crank calls a poss. pedophile.

from article:

>>Weber and Katehis agreed to meet Friday night for a sexual encounter after the newsman had promised him $60.
Weber had orginally placed an ad on Craigslist looking for someone to choke him and engage in oral sex.
Police sources told The Post that Weber’s legs were duct-taped and that he pulled out a knife to free himself - not attack Katehis.

>>Katehis told cops that he and Weber drank Vodka and did cocaine before the situation turned violent.
He told police that Weber pulled a knife on him, he took it and stabbed the former radio newscaster.
Meanwhile, new details of the chilling crime were revealed.
According to investigators, the knife sliced through Weber’s neck, back and torso so many times that it was difficult to get an accurate count by the time the body was discovered two days ago.

I dont care if Weber invited him over. I think I would still entertain the option of frying this creep.

Oops, forgot SCOTUS says that’s verboten ‘cause we have to keep up our image with France.

Homosexuality is perfectly normal. There’s nothing wrong with it. They are obviously not perverts. They should be able to freely join the military, get married, and adopt children. You know, it’s to bad that this prowling pedophile didn’t have children in his home at the time of his violent, sexual murder. What has mankind come to...
