Teens Killed Because They Were Bored: Judge
NBCConnecticut.com ^

Posted on 12/02/2010 10:43:38 AM PST by raybbr

A judge revealed Wednesday what he called a disturbing motive behind the murder of Matthew Chew as he walked home from work in New London Oct. 29.

Six teens appeared in court Wednesday to face various charges in connection with the murder.

Reading from a sealed arrest warrant, Judge Kevin McMahon said the group beat Chew to death for "no reason" other than "because they were bored", according to a report in The Day of New London.

Idris Elahi and Marquis Singleton, both 17, are charged with Chew's murder. Brian Rabell, 18, and three 17-year-olds, Tyree Bundy, Matias Perry and Rashad Perry (no relation), are all charged with accessory to murder.

McMahon blasted police, who initially said Chew was using his cell phone to buy drugs at the time of his murder, and that the attack was drug related, the paper reported.

"I'm not happy with the police department's conduct," McMahon said. He continued that the victim's actions that night had "nothing to do with his death", according to The Day.

Don’t flame me, but I feel sorry for NORMAL African-Americans. These stories seem endless and it does indicate some sort of societal breakdown in the AA community, at least in the urban areas with poverty, bad education, single mother, etc.

The AA community signed a pact with the Devil in 1965.

Look what has occurred in the interim.

There is a stupendously large correlation between the Great Society programs and everything you mention.

These kids are without hope; they see themselves as angry victims, and as a result, have no proper place in society.

Matthew Chew

It couldn't be a hate crime, now could it?! /s

Matthew was born in Japan on May 16, 1985, son of Commander Richard F. and Marilyn (Sloan) Chew of Arcadia, Calif. Matthew grew up in Gales Ferry, graduating from Ledyard High School in 2003. Matt had a strong connection to the art and music community and was a passionate artist and musician, deejaying at several local clubs. He adored his dog, Ellie and enjoyed being a part of the 2 Wives Pizza family. He will be well remembered by his family and many friends.

In addition to his parents, he is survived by his brother, Michael Chew and girlfriend, Alexandra Monter, of Mansfield; and his sister and brother-in-law, Mindy and Wayne Fowler of Canterbury. He is also survived by his nieces and nephews, Cody, Ivy, Roman, and Athena; and his girlfriend, Lindsey Krodel.

They are accused in the death of a man, who was walking home from his job. (something the killers obviously knew nothing about)

Police say 25-year-old Matthew Chew had just left his job at Two Wives Brick Oven Pizza back on October 29th and was on his way home to Huntington Street when he was attacked while walking. Stabbed six times he tried to make his way back to the restaurant but he collapsed in the road.

As for motive, the ten-page warrant is sealed but the judge said witness statements indicate there was “no reason” and “because we were bored.”

I always get confused on the terminology. It used to be negro, then black, then African-American (referring to blacks of US birth as opposed to Africans), then it was black again, etc.

Why I am not surprised. Minorities refer to whites as whitey, cracker, honky, Pohonk, white devil, gringo, albino, etc.

I thought electing Obama was going to end all this? /sarc

Everything that has come from the great society was foretold in a huge study by New York senior senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan (Democrat).

He called it all and in enormous detail.  Look it up.

“In 1965 his office issued The Negro Family: The Case for National Action, commonly known as the Moynihan Report. Its conclusion that African-American urban poverty could be traced in part to a breakdown of family structure was at the time much criticized by civil-rights activists but is now generally regarded as an unusually prescient analysis.”

There is nothing flame worthy in your comment. There are many 'normal' (I prefer, sensible) Americans who happen to be black that frequent this forum.

I've had a similar sentiment for many years. I know dozens of well educated, classy black ladies who can not find a decent mate of their own race.

It is a sad situation at the very least. Fortunately, attitudes are changing, gradually.

1 - Awesome; we need judges who will.
2 - Aren’t there things that can be done *to* the police because they lied? If under-oath they can certainly be charged with perjury.

I read the report in high school and again in college.

What a mess, and how does one change the direction of these kids? And the ones yet unborn(who haven’t been aborted).

America threw in the towel because it felt guilty; and because it kicked God out of society. And now we see daily what that guilt and rejection of the Almighty has wrought.

It probably does. However, I don't see the AA community doing anything to address the problem. Indeed, blacks who speak to the issues (e.g., Sowell, Cosby, etc.) are reviled in the black community because they point to blacks as the cause of the problem. Sharpton, Jackson, et al all want more money thrown at the problem, and they always play the race card even though they can guess that race isn't the issue (e.g., the Duke lacrosse case). It just seems to me that the AA community isn't willing to accept responsibility for anything that touches their lives, from raising children to educating their children. We've thrown billions into the War On Poverty since it was declared by Johnson and what do we have to show for it? A recent report said poverty is worse now than it's ever been. Time to cut the entitlements and let people sink or swim.

Without looking at a pic of the victim, I will guess that he was white. If he was white I will venture that this was not a “boredom” crime but a black on white hate crime, either that or they were taking part in a killing as an initiation into a gang. To try to put the onus on the victim by accusing him of doing a drug deal is BS and just another example of PC gone wild in the USA, something we need to stand up and fight back against.

I think I can pretty much reconstruct it. This was a white guy who was stupid enough to try to buy drugs from six inner city blacks.

So he flashed his cash, and they figured, well, why sell the drugs to this stupid whitey, when we can keep the money AND the drugs for some extra profit. Plus we get all the fun of beating a stupid whitey to death, who is too dumb to know that this is OUR territory and he is only here on sufferance. Which we hereby withdraw.

no flaming here. However when you deliberately murder someone because you are bored...then those who are responsible should pay. No need to blanket one race or religion or any of that. Just punish the guilty party/ies and be done with it. There MUST be justice for the murdered victim and their families. That is the only right way to handle it. I don’t care what color someone is, how they practice faith if they have one or what happened in their past. The present is what counts. If we would deal with things that way maybe there would be less crime. Who knows?

They didn’t murder because they were bored. That’s bullshit.

There are tens of millions of bored American teenagers out there who are not murdering people. They’re finding something reasonable to do.

“Boredom” is not a cause of murder.

They murdered because they are evil people. They’re evil people because they’ve been raised without morals, probably raised without any real parenting, most likely raised by violence-glorifying [c]rap “music,” raised to think they are victims of Whitey, who actually has a job and works about 12 hours a day to eventually buy out the pizzeria and make something of himself.

Yes. There was some mention of a cell phone and a drug buy, but of course that may have just been a faked story. In which case, he was just murdered because he was white, and because maybe he might have a little cash on him, or a watch or something.

You don't; they're feral animals and should be treated as such.

But anyone who walks the streets without a gun, at night, anywhere within a hundred miles of young black males, is complicit in his own fate.
