How Come This Is Not News?


The criminals pictured above car-jacked, then raped Christopher Newsom, cut off his penis, then 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 for four days by all of them, while they took turns urinating on her. Then 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 murder of 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.

The silence of the news media is deafening. I wonder why. Why hasn’t this received National coverage as the Duke ‘rape’ case did where three innocent white men were hung in public for a year although there was no evidence against them?

Oh, that’s right – these victims are white.

Why hasn’t the FBI been called in to investigate this as a hate crime?
Oh, that’s right – the victims are white.
Think about it, if a white radio shock jock uses the phrase ‘Nappy headed’, it gets 2 weeks of constant news coverage.

The murder of a black honor student in Chicago gets the attention of the president.
But if  a young white couple is tortured, raped, and murdered – in one of the most heinous crimes in memory – and the perpetrators are blacks, nobody is going to hear about it.

That’s the double standard we live under – a standard imposed by a hypocritical culture that calls itself “liberal.” So much for transcending race in the age of Obama.

    What more could you ask for, Uh,,,,,,,,,the point of the story is that if the roles wee reversed it would be used as an example of how whites are racist. The thugs that murdered Byrd in Texas got the death penalty and every race hustler in America and many black Pols still use it paint with a broad brush.

  • Clark

    They're being charged with premeditated murder in a Southern state. Some of these guys – perhaps all of them – are going to get the needle. What more could you ask for, lynch mobs storming through the ghetto for vengeance?

  • Sioux

    The public has a right to know what monsters are walking among us. The details of the crime are vital to public safety. I doubt seriously that these despicable creatures committed their first crime on these two innocents. How many times did they walk out of jail or prison before this horrific crime? None of these things are known to me because no one is reporting it.

  • gwgreg

    Does anyone buy the “reasoning” snoops uses for why we do not cover this?

  • t

    this is about the dictionary definition of hate crime. if its not prosecuted under the cheesey hate crime laws that have been invented for white on black crime then… well yeah.

  • Jenn

    It's clearly obvious why this is not news. The evil and ignorant terrorist-type killers are black. Political correctness doesn't allow for blacks to be anything other than pathetic victims of white racists. The fact that it is not news shows that the PC media is itself evil.

  • Name

    Gee, leave it to the propagandist horowitiz to reprint details that snopes points out are inaccurate. How subtle.

    Other gems from this crocodile-tear shedding charlatan:

    “one of the most heinous crimes in memory”. A simple google search is enough to show that this hyper-violent country is full of recent heinous crimes.

    “the double standard we live under”. boo hoo, it's rough being white. Again, we can all point to types of violent crimes that go unreported and ascribe motives. In some cases it may be valid to do so, in others not. horowitz provides no evidence that a) this was racially motivated or b) there is a conspiracy to not cover this particular crime. And the original post asks why no one is calling for an investigation. Um, according to the snopes story all suspects have been arrested, charged and indicted. I guess that happened without an investigation.

    horowitz you race baiting intellectual wannabe fraud, go peddle your snake oil at the right wing freak show.

  • Jenn

    To “name”

    1) “…provides no evidence that this was racially motivated”.
    Answer – A great big d-u-u-h.

    2) And…no conspiracy not to cover this particular crime?
    Answer – Never saw it on TV nor read about it in the papers. In other words, it was hushed up. That in itself is a conspiracy. (duh)

    3) You are the intellectual wannabe. Horowitz is the real thing.

  • antioli

    If you want to reach the national media portay the incident as a racial assault on several black men that went terribly wrong. Like Duke the truth will come out much to the embarrassment if the Multiculturalist Racists.

  • antioli

    It needs to be investigated to determine if it was a racial crime.
    Initially there was no investigation on the Duke affair;rather the mass media made the presumption that it was a racial crime. Unfortunatlly for the anti white racists the real racism actually came from the multicultural left wing; They couldn't wait to scream
    white racism. Now the same multicultural racists refuse even to find out the if it was a racial assault. Perhaps the assault was done by a group of very mentally ill freaks.

  • stout77

    He never claims conspiracy. It is beyond that – it is ingrained into our PC culture as an unconscious reflex. A conspiracy by a few individuals would actually be preferable to the current state of affairs.

    Love the last sentence of your post. Oh that I might one day become as enlightened, tolerant, and intellectual as yourself.

  • nomadthinker

    Answer: This news conflicts with the Leftist media's distortion / manipulation / omission of facts to represent blacks as victimized by racist whites – this, to establish conflicts within the country, so that we will not unify against the Marxist movement at work.

    The idea that when a black does something wrong, to prosecute or even talk about it is racist hurts black communities. It says that blacks cannot be expected to have morals, be good people, be successful, so anything they do is ok. What do these underlying false premises do to little black kids as they grow up?

    What it leads to is 2 white kids tortured and murdered, 5 young blacks' lives in ruin.

  • BlackEagle

    These monsters were created by the black-ghetto hate-whitey gangsta culture, but one is not supposed to criticize any of it. Even black conservatives cannot do so, without being called ugly names. Yet we all know, if the skin colors were reversed in this case, it would be daily news updates on all the channels and papers, with editorials about how we were slipping back into the KKK mentality, etc.

  • Walt

    No, as the article states, why are cases involving some black youth being killed in Chicago or the Duke Players case being given national ink, when something even more horrific by far is ignored? You should work on your reading comprehension.

  • Walt

    Apparently, more than a few do. You might want to look at the posts here.

  • Jack5678

    Liberalism is the greatest evil ever to walk the planet. Liberals created the Christian Newsom murders by encouraging hatred, immorality and the destruction of the family in black communities and across America.
    Liberals created the PC attitude that prevents the punishment of criminals and the honest reporting of news.
    Liberalism is a mental disease, a great evil….it must be eradicated from the planet.
    As to the perpetrators of the crime? The only rational punishment would be to have them burned alive on national TV after reading the details of their demonic activities.

  • clark81

    This was well-covered in the local media, so it was not unknown to the people who needed to know (as if guys being held without bond were a threat to the “public” to begin with).

  • clark81

    This story is two years old, it WAS covered…back when it happened.

  • bob3squared

    why aren't ANYONE covering this (trial started in JULY


    where is AL AND JESSIE!!!!

    Apparently justice IS BLIND

  • michaellord

    This reminds me of the Missy MacLaughlin rape/murder that took place in Charleston, SC back in December 1992. Five black males kidnapped a young white woman off the street, took her back to a trailer and gang-raped her over a 24 hour period. After each rape they made her bathe in bleach to get rid of the DNA. Some of the men's girlfriends helped in her assault. They finally took her out to the country, shot her in the head and dumped her along the road. When the police raided the trailer they found a black manifesto written by one of the monsters who was later found in Detroit and brought back to SC for trial. There was no mention of this on the national news even though the manifesto proved premeditation. It's almost as if the MSM were actually in collusion with these thugs.

  • cjkcjk

    No It wasn't LIAR.

  • cjkcjk

    “boo hoo, it's rough being white.”From the idiot above. Actually It's tough being black. Number one cause of death among black males is murder. About 70% of black children are bastards. If the 30+ million blacks here had their own nation it would be just as bad as any crap hole country in Africa….The real freak show in America is black culture.

  • J Allen

    Clark, The are animals. Wake up.

  • rnot

    This is why people are turning away from the MSM.

  • CowboyUp

    Lynch mobs storming through the resident created ghetto is what happens when the races are reversed. Who's fault is it the bias is so obvious, and are we not to notice no matter how blatant and obvious it is? Will we see you here strongly protesting the wall to wall media coverage the next time that's the case, or just as likely nowdays, the hoax? Or will you be here excusing and apologizing for the murderous mob?

    What more could I ask for? No more than I ask for the Alday killers or any other murderers, whatever their race and motives: The perp dies like the victim. That will do more to put an end to this kind of sick sh*t than anything else.

    Vengence? That's the Lord's, we're right to demand justice, punishment, and deterence here on earth. Executing convicted murderers as close as can be determined, to the exact same way they tortured and murdered their victims, would fulfill both. They themselves determine the limits of cruel and unusual punishment in their individual case. If they wanted a quick merciful needle, they should have given the same consideration to their victims.

  • CowboyUp

    I heard about it here at FPM a year or two ago (like many other buried incidents), but that was it. It didn't even make the front page next door in Georgia. He could be guessing and just wrong, but you're probably right.

    Some people will try to defend anything, even the indefensible. Go for it clark.

  • robbwinst

    When did this horrific crime actually take place? And what happened to the Murderers? Have they been put to death or are they still living an easy life on tax paying dollars? But I believe one comment was correct, to repeat the horrific crimes on the perp. whatever was done to the innocent will be done to the guilty.
    That might just curb the urge to kill or harm..

  • Lesli

    when I saw this story featured on Discovery ID –maybe it was dateline – I don't ever remember them giving these details. Omg I am mortified. I am wondering if there is ANY news organization who ever tells the real truth? I mean is that too much to ask?? They are all goin to hell – really… I loathe the media..

  • Melissa Jo Capps

    Where are the pics of the perpetrators??? I can’t find them anywhere on the web. Have they been banned? And, if so, WHY?! This is absolutely OUTRAGEOUS and IRRESPONSIBLE and UNACCEPTABLE by the internet media and other news outlets ie. radio, tv.
