Families Of British Teens Murdered In U.S. Lash Out At Obama White House For Ignoring Them
Mediaite ^ | March 29, 2012 | Noah Rothman

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 Tyson’s 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.

He looks like Obama's son, if Obama had a son.

OK, got to point this out:

James Cooper, 25, and James Kouzaris, 24

"...murdered teens..."

"...two friends of the murdered teens..."

Apparently, early 20's is still "teens" in the UK

A point of fact.

The grieving parents of two British teenagers who were killed while on holiday in Sarasota, Florida... But the pleas from the friends and families of the murdered teens ...James Cooper, 25, and James Kouzaris, 24

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

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!!!

[1] The Brits spanked Obozo’s grandfather, and he hasn’t forgiven them,

[2] 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,

[3] The two victims failed to look like a son of Il Douche would have looked, being white and all.

“This story doesn’t appeal to white guilt, without which 0bama isn’t president.”

Besides aO Bama and the MSM doesn’t want the Negro Community to think badly of themselves and that they are Ethically Challanged...bad for self-esteem.

The WH finally responds:

“If you’re a whitey, you can bite me.”
If you’re black, I’ve got your back.”

Sorry Cooper family, Kouzaris family and friends of those families. Obama does not care about your loved ones because they didn’t look like they could be his sons.

Their kids just didn’t look enough like Obama’s (real or imagined) for him to notice or care. Too white and too British.

Tell the Brits that the Pres. don’t give a rat’s rear end for white people, he’s only concerned about black people.
All one has to do review his first term.

Again, I don’t think they really care about the self-esteem of the black community as much as they want to continue the myth that the cultural dysfunction they live in is caused by the “other”/whitey and maintain the loathing, and thus the dependence.

I read yesterday that he has already been given a life sentence and that he was not eligible for the death penalty because when he committed the murders he was 16 years old.

They took a lesson from obamacare, where for insurance reasons, children are children until they are 26 years old.

It depends on what the meaning of “is” is.

Their social safety net is more advanced and has “progressed” farther than ours. We are in a race to catch up with them.

The families should count it a blessing Teh Won has ignored them. His standard “punches beyond their weight” when speaking of/with “allies” would seem inappropriate for this occasion, so whatever else came out of his mouth would likely be stranger still. Take it from those who care - American citizens - we are sorry so many of our youth are killers.
