Skip to comments.Families Of British Teens Murdered In U.S. Lash Out At Obama White House For Ignoring Them
Posted on 03/29/2012 11:04:16 AM PDT by Free ThinkerNY
The grieving parents of two British teenagers who were killed while on holiday in Sarasota, Florida in April, 2011, received justice this week; their murderer, Sean Tyson, was convicted on two counts of first-degree murder and awaits sentencing. But the pleas from the friends and families of the murdered teens for public acknowledgement of the tragedy from the President of the United States have gone unanswered. Before the Obama presidency, it would have been considered ludicrous for the White House to weigh into every politically relevant criminal act but the president has invited this criticism by elevating several local controversies to national scandals for political gain.
James Cooper, 25, and James Kouzaris, 24, were killed in April of last year by the remorseless Sean Tyson. Led into an ally and shot several times for not having enough cash for Tysons liking. This week, Tyson was convicted. Justice, in this case, was done.
But the family and friends of the murdered teens have been reaching out to President Obama for weeks for him to weigh into the case. They have been met with silence and are now lashing out at the White House.
Two friends of the teens, Paul Davies and Joe Hallett, spoke for the grieving families outside the Florida court house where Tyson was convicted. We would like to publicly express our dissatisfaction at the lack of any public or private message of support or condolence from any American governing body or indeed, President Obama himself, Davies told the press. Mr. Kouzaris has written to President Obama on three separate occasions and is yet to even receive the courtesy of a reply.

Obama and Holder only want citizens to be “good victims”.
It’s the defending ourselves against criminals that they have a problem with.
Obama ignored them
And I guarantee you the MSM in the USA will ignore them as well.
FALSE. Justice will not be done unless this POS gets the death penalty and he is executed. THEN justice will be done.
Now we’ve got nationwide race war AND an international incident. Good job, Barry! /s
He looks like Obama's son, if Obama had a son.
``2 Brits doth a Nation Maketh``
Obummer is scared that the ``English`` Embassy will file a complaint against him- hahaha
James Cooper, 25, and James Kouzaris, 24
"...two friends of the murdered teens..."
Apparently, early 20's is still "teens" in the UK

But the family and friends of the murdered teens
Did they change the meaning of teenager without announcing it?
I’m sorry, this is a horrible story, and I am grateful that justice has been served, but why does the “reporter” call the victims, aged 24 and 25, “teenagers” over and over?
Beat me by less than two minutes!
Weird isn’t it.
Also, that’s mid-20s, not early 20s.
I’m sorry for the loss to these families but there’s no compelling reason for the Office of the President to “weigh in” on this case.
Besides....who knows WHAT the moron would say if he did decide to discuss it.
He’d probably blame the Brits who were killed.
That’s not the primary angle on this -
the primary angle is that this crime doesn’t advance the agenda. This story doesn’t gin up black race hatred to get them, as a group, incited to vote for 0bama at the least, and to riot as the ultimate goal.
This story doesn’t appeal to white guilt, without which 0bama isn’t president.
Brits don’t vote in U.S. elections; of course Obama ignored the grieving parents. If you can’t do something for Obama — deliver votes, give campaign money, serve an agenda — then you are irrelevant to the sociopath we call a President who views people only as paths to power. The President’s a scumbag, and like all sociopaths he cares only about himself and to the extent he thinks of others it’s only in the context of what they can do for him. This sad trait is actually pretty common in politicians and others who are obsessed with money and power.
Silly British, Obama will only call you and express his “Outrage” when he can gain politically from it. First it was Sandra Fluke(AKA the SLUT) her 15 min ran out, now its on to Trayvon Martin, once his 15 min of fame disappears he will move on to the next diversion. Besides, the murderer in this case was one of Obama’s “Sons” so of course he won’t call
His lawyers will say he was “an honor student”...
No pic on this article but I googled the killer and, just as I thought, he is one of Bozo’s son look alikes. Funny how no one is raising he** over these two British subjects being killed for no reason what so ever(except they are white and didn’t have enough money on them)but one black teen who was trying to smash a guys face in and was killed in self defense gets all the a** kissing the Pres can give him. Isn’t that strange?
James Cooper, 25, and James Kouzaris, 24, Both white, the murderer teenager Sean Tyson black. The parents want some face time from this Resident, Not in this lifetime! We Americans are so sorry for both your son’s loss, but this guy doesn’t have it in him to say he is sorry about anything!!!
I think twentyager means teenager in the UK.
 The Brits spanked Obozo’s grandfather, and he hasn’t forgiven them,
 The Brits failed to stop Obozo’s drunk of a father from wrapping himself around a tree, or whatever, and he hasn’t forgiven them,
 The two victims failed to look like a son of Il Douche would have looked, being white and all.
