Michelle Malkin ^ | August 18, 2009 | Michelle Malkin

Posted on 08/21/2009 6:49:20 AM PDT by SonnyBubba

Longtime readers will remember Channon Christian and Christopher Newsom, the young couple brutally murdered in a racially-charged case in Knoxville, TN in 2007. My archives on the case are here.

The trial of the first defendant Letalvis Cobbins began yesterday. The Knoxville News Sentinel reports:

Let’s see if the lame stream media reports this. They didn’t report it when it happened. Wonder why?

There was no mention of the race of the perp. In the MSM that means he was probably black.

When do Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton show up to plea for the victims in THIS case?

Oh, never mind ...

Victims are WHITE.
So-there’s nothing to see here.
Move on, or you’re racist.

2nd thought, you’re racist anyway. Now GO!

Earlier this afternoon, jurors in the January 2007 slaying of a Knox County couple ended their day with testimony about the grisly discovering of one victim’s body that had been burned beyond recognition.

I am absolute ill reading about this. Animals, nothing but animals. But where has this been from January 2007? This cried for swift justice, and it is apparent it did not happen. Where was the coverage of this by the "Media"?

On Saturday January 6, 2007 Hugh Christopher Newsom, age 23 and Channon Gail Christian, age 21, both students at the University of Tennessee went out on a date. They were driving in Channon’s Toyota 4-Runner when they were carjacked at gunpoint. Suddenly the crime turned far more savage than an armed car theft. Chris and Channon were kidnapped and driven to 2316 Chipman Street where they were forced into the home at gunpoint. While Channon was forced to watch, her boyfriend was raped prison style and then his penis was cut off. He was later driven to nearby railroad tracks where he was shot and set afire. But Channon’s hell was just beginning. She was beaten; gang raped repeatedly in many ways, had one of her breasts cut off and bleach poured down her throat to destroy DNA evidence-all while she was still alive. To add to Channon’s degradation the suspects took turns urinating on her. They too set her body afire, apparently inside the residence, but for some reason left her body there-in five separate trash bags...

Somehow, I knew that. When there is no mention of race in the media, the perps are always Black or Hispanic, and the victims White.

Maybe FOX NEWS will cover it! This is the kind of news story which Megan Kelly would cover on the O'Reilly Factor.

The Rest of the MSM doesn't concern me. \

I stopped watching the NEWS on the Alphabet Networks(ABC,NBC,CBS,CNN,etc.)long before FOX showed up.

Lets dress him up nice so he doesn’t look like the savage animal he really is. He is lucky to live in the time he does or “Vigilantly Justice” would have done run its course and he would be facing his creator rather then the judge.

This is the culmination of years of hate speech by some of the leaders of the black community. This hate speech has given the psychological okay to do anything the depraved want to do to “WHITEY.”

These miserable animals depravity is the result of this hatred spewed by the likes of Reverend Wright and many other leaders in the black community.

IMO there will be no death penalty. One just has to look at the composition of the jury: one Asian man, two black men, five black women, one hispanic man, one white man, two white women.

I feel truly for the victims’ loved ones, they have suffered and will suffer more as the trial continues.

PC tells us that we shouldn’t be cautious of folks of certain demographics or cultures.

If you teach your kids that, you’re essentially killing them yourself.

It is important to talk about why these crimes are not discussed in the media. This one and the other terrible black on white crimes such as the one with the four kids who were killed in a field by a gang of blacks.

These blacks terrorize both blacks and whites and when they go after whites it is about race. Torture and murders are not something to ignore

All five perps were black, which is why the MSM won’t report on the brutal rape, torture, mutilation and murder of two white people.

They should be shot, hung, and drowned before the execution. My mind can't get around this measure of evil.

Crimes against our children are every parents nightmare. These trials should be highly publicised in the media, but won't likely be because the perps are all black and victims white. One can imagine a frenzy of coverage, 24/7, if the races were reversed.

As a former UT student, I am pleased that Michelle is taking the story to task. Unfortunately, black on white crime is more prevalent than is reported.

This story makes you wish they’d bring back the electric chair (and maybe have it not function properly when these characters are seated, like the last execution they did in FL). The needle is far, far too humane for them.

I consistently query my kids, concerning exactly who they will be associating with when they go out. These questions are blunt and highly politically incorrect. But, they are based on the plain facts of the demographics of crime statistics.

These “things” don’t even rate being called animals. They are more demons than anything else.

I heard that the deceased girls dad went down and tried to post bail that night for all five of them when they were arrested and they wouldn’t release them. TN mountain justice would have been served swiftly and effectively if this is true.

If this crime does not deserve the death penalty then the death penalty needs to be removed from the books.
