Trayvon Martin Case Revives Channon Christian & Christopher Newsom’s Murder Story
In the wake of the Trayvon Martin vs. George Zimmerman trial, you might have seen the image above or one similar circulating on facebook as they have gained thousands of likes and shares. If not you can read the text that accompanied it below.However what you might not realize is that the story is actually from back in January of 2007; having read the facebook version you would have no clue. Wikipedia has quite a bit of information about the terrible story and what followed in courts in case you are curious. The murders did not get off the hook for what they did.
Obviously someone thought this was an opportune time to try and pull something over on a lot of unsuspecting people. We are in no way saying the story isn't true or incredibly heartbreaking, but it is misleading out of the proper context of the time period in which it really happened.
Can you imagine what the families of the two kids must be going through as this story is brought back to life? That's what we're disappointed by... that specific exclusion in the message being shared and misleading people to help create more hatred and promote an agenda 6 years later at the expense of those kid's families, regardless of what the media did back in 2007 and whether it was right or wrong.
If you haven't read the text that was with the picture above, you can take a look below. Beware that the description is pretty graphic...
**Wake Up White Boy**
The text description is very horrific !!!!
As horrific as this is, it needs to circulate!!!
The animals pictured below car-jacked then raped Christopher Newsom, cut off his penis, set him on fire and fatally shot him several times while they forced his girlfriend, Channon Christian, to watch. An even more cruel fate awaited her!
Channon Christian was beaten and gang-raped in many ways for four days by all of them, while they took turns urinating on her. They cut off her breasts and put chemicals in her mouth... and then murdered her.
Knoxville (WVLT) - The District Attorney General of Knox County announced the list of charges facing now five suspects in the double murderof Channon Christian and Christopher Newsom.
The District Attorney General Randy Nichols is not saying whether or not he will seek the death penalty, but he does say the State will seek conviction for all charges filed in a 24-page indictment from the Knox County Grand Jury. Lemaricus Davidson, 25 , faces a total of 46 charges.. Letalvis Cobbins, 24 , faces a total of 46 charges. George Thomas, 24 , faces a total of 46 charges. Vanessa Coleman, 18 , faces 40 Tennessee state charges. Eric Boyd, 24 , also arrested in connection with the fatal car jacking, only faces federal charges as an accessory after the fact.
SO!!!!! Where's Al Sharpton, and Jesse Jackson? Are they providing counsel and help to the families of the victims?
Of course not - the victims were white
Why hasn't this received National coverage by the news media like the Trayvon Martin case in Florida
Oh, that's right - the victims were white
Why hasn't the NAACP, ACLU, New York Times etc., called for an investigation?
Must be cause the victims were white
Why hasn't the FBI been called in to investigate this as a hate crime?
Oh, that's right - the victims were white'
So, if a white radio shock jock uses the phrase 'Nappy headed'Ho, it gets 2 weeks of constant news coverage.If two white people are tortured, raped, and murdered by a group of black people, it barely gets a blip in the news.Pass this around, and maybe, just maybe, it will land in the hands of someone in the media or politics, who has the guts to stand up for the white people!! Or don't because you don't have the guts either!!
