Celebrate Adversity: Anniversary of Christian/Newsom Torture, Slayings
A year ago this night, 2 young people were taken in the night and viciously tortured , sexually abused and mutilated and eventually killed when there was no further use for them or their gang of killers grew tired of playing with them- much as a cat grows tired of playing with a mouse and finally snuffs out what little life remains in it, or leaves it to die.
I think about how these last few weeks must have been hell for the parents, having children myself, one almost grown. It is too horrific to even comtemplate or try to envision how the parents make it every day, their grief multiplied many times over knowing that their children’s deaths weren’t one of those accidents that happen out of the blue, and victims “didn’t know what hit them”. No, these kids were probably praying for these monsters to be done with them and put them out of their misery, or at least to stop the torture and leave them , perhaps to live, perhaps to die, but end the cruelty.
2007 would be the Christian and Newsom’s first Christmas without Channon and Chris,, and the realization that ALL Christmases will to a greater or lesser extent, be filled with a sense of hollowness and mourning. There are some things that all the prayer groups and singing just don’t take away, and if there is anything that qualifies, this has got to be in the top 3- having your child tortured, burned, raped, shot, forced to drink poisonous chemicals, left to suffocate (I am consolidating some of what they suffered, and there is probably more the police didn’t see any purpose in releasing to the public). You start to understand how people comfort themselves by repeating mantras like : “they’re in a better place now” or ” they aren’t suffering” , “No one can hurt them now”, etc. Americans like comforting, feel-good phrases. Especially average, white Americans.
What is the alternative, after all? Anger? Rage? Oh certainly from some of the things I read, that was there as well- but people have been scared into thinking even completely justifiable rage can be transformed into “hate” or “racism”, made-up terms which nbot only take away the victim’s right to be angry , it takes away the ability of the victim to be pissed off at the whole murderer, not only at the crime itself, as if the race existed separately , absolutely had no role it it. “Hate the sin, not the sinner” crapula .
Come ON. Even the most whining, excuse-laden , social-program-loving liberals would say “it’s a result of the oppression and poverty, lack of education, blah blah blabbity blah”…. and they always say that stuff is OK to be racial, in fact that stuff is said pretty much exclusively minorities . They try to blame it all on society, “if they weren’t poor, they wouldn’t have done that, if they had a father, if the schools were “accountable for education” and other such high-lather blather. You can’t have it both ways, race either counts or it doesn’t (whatever the excuses are) , and in my view , when you justifiably hate someone for KILLING YOUR CHILDREN, you hate ALL of them, race IS a part of who we are, in EVERY SENSE. Historically, biologically, socially, and many other ways.
That is why the concept of “hate crime” or “hate this or that” is such crap. You cannot seperate race from an individual. It is not like switching brands of cola or automobile. Like it or not, your race IS part of who you are. Make up your mind- either run from it or don’t, but don’t one minute say “race had nothing to do with it” (whee!) then when confronted with crime stats, start with the litany of “social this” and “Inequity That”.. BS.
And, if you happen to be a violence-prone person with little to no impulse control, you better get yourself to a med-i-cal Dr and get on some meds or get the heck out of normal society , you know the ones where people have toliets and bookstores and go back to ….well, uncivilized society where that serves you well, you know, hunting and killing. Yeah , yeah, gimme the old “white serial killer” crud, and I’ve made this point before- that is the EXCEPTION, not the RULE with US. (The whole “Well, I know this one black guy and he’s OK” – don’t you see how that just ILLUSTRATES MY POINT?!) . You can’t expect to do heinous acts in a civilized society and think people aren’t going to be pissed off, and yes, want an eye for an eye. Only the State won’t truly give an eye for an eye, they just hang you, shoot you, or put you to sleep. If we’re NOT going to be a civilized society, then heck, it’s Civil War time again, except this time it’s not about states. It’s about state of mind, and behavior and being an animalistic, violence-prone , low-IQ , criminal defective, guaranteed to make more like themselves, and how the time has come to make this UNACCEPTABLE.
WHY did these kids , these normal , everyday kids have to DIE so viciously ? Why did they “have” to die at ALL? Ask George Thomas, Lemaricus Davidson, Vanessa Coleman, Eric Boyd and Letalvus Cobbins
We don’t want more of this savagery, for that is what it is. I can’t write a saccharin memorial about all the great things Channon and Chris were or what they could have been- I KNOW those things, those kids are OUR kids too, the way I see it. It is too late to go on about how wonderful they were when there are others to save- We KNOW it was a waste of precious and not only regular old human life, but good, healthy, smart, nice-to-be-around kids. I would have pulled over and helped those kids any day of the week, I would let those kids, total strangers into my home, and fed them dinner because I would have the innate sense they were good, not dangerous and it would be my duty to help them. Going to be honest, I wouldn’t for their black equivalent. It’s not hate, it’s common sense, I would be AFRAID to help them, that it would be some sort of scam if they acted like they needed help, and many times , it WOULD have been. Stop acting like this and people wil stop THINKING stuff like this.
The atrocities and violence HAVE to stop, period (not to mention the daily crime-there’s really poor people in Euro countries and they are not stealing, bank-robbing, raping, ditching their children on grandparents for crack, and so on.). Not having great opportunities is not having a license to kill. Believe it or not, lots of White people have poverty stricken , crappy lives and guess what? They aren’t out doing drive bys or raping and robbing en masse. This is NOT the way we live. The whole “revenge on Whitey’s children” has to end.
White Murder does not “make up for slavery” – if anything, this behavior is only proof positive some people DO belong in captivity,- prison, or in the wild, not amongst people who just want to live their lives and contribute to their community (waa waa, some groups are over-represented in prisons, it must be Whitey’s fault, cause everything is! Cause they couldn’t ALL be guilty, COULD they? ) . You’re not some swashbuckling hero or Spartan because you commit heinous crimes against normal white people living their lives. Want to kill people ? Join the military if you want to be a killing machine, don’t pick on unarmed, normal, non-violent people , you psychos. Don’t tell me those kids got the ‘full metal torture and death” and their being white had nothing to do with the level of viciousness exacted upon them. It is highly unlikely they even had more than the usual white kid level of predjudice, if any- but that is not the POINT! The point is you just DON’T DO THAT TO PEOPLE! Only ANIMALS maul and rend people like that. Perhaps animals are not even that as cruel as this gang of thugs were to Channon and Chris.
I hope the parents attend the trial, and the jury looks at them and realizes there is truly no payback that can help these people as far as what is to be done with the killers, torturers, rapists, etc…The way their deaths would not be in vain is for them to become martyrs in a sense- that this is not allowed to happen again, and again, and again, across our nation, to our children, under the whole “White People put up with Anything Amendment (and shut up about it).” I cry for you, parents of Channon and Chris-you too are victims of a society that tells us “we are all the same”, “love and forgive everyone” , perhaps even “good Christians don’t get mad or get even, they just pray and love and forgive even harder”…
Yeah sure, the next obligatory statement is “bad people come in all colors” , but you know- more bad people come in some colors than in others, statistically speaking. It’s just a fact. You’re more likely on the bad side of town (and we all know what “bad side of town ” is code for) to become a victim of any crime, than you are to meet up with a Henry Rollins or Jeff Dahmer, that is so unlikely to happen, and even those guys often prey upon those who AGREE to GO WITH THEM. Aside from child-kidnappers, most “serial killer guys” do not carjack. They prey upon hitchhikers, women at bars at 2 am, prostitutes, etc. Oh yeah, there was the ONE guy, Berkowitz, I think he was the “lover’s lane” killer. Son of Sam, but even HE was an aberration- a jewish serial killer, not your typical basement-dwelling hollywood SK type. Point being, ANY minority neighborhood, a white person or couple, family, etc ., is likely to be harmed in some way, and we ALL know it. They kill themselves regularly- but it is especially heinous when it is totally innocent people who die, especially the way Channon and Chris did.

I’ve said it before, slavery was a bad thing, it was horrible, even though my people were not even close to being in this country and had nothing to do with it, I say “We” because I am white. We should have never taken slaves, (even though Euros have enslaved each other as well as blacks doing the same in their homeland) not only was it wrong, it wasn’t even worth it. However, that said, “We” (count whatever Euro’s you want, Im speaking of Pilgrims, misc Euro immigrants), “We” don’t like to live in a SAVAGE environment, having our kids raped, set of fire, shot, suffocated, etc. Think this was just “an isolated incident?” WTF does that phrase mean? Every incident is a separate incident, but they all ADD UP. Get it? What about the Robby Hedrick case in NY? He was a lot luckier than Channon and Chris, but he is permanently damaged nonethless. What do ya know? Yet another “ISOLATED INCIDENT”..
14-year old Robby
> Hedrick, who is White, was savagely beaten by 16-year old Joseph
> Williams, who is Black and more than twice Robby’s size. As a result of
> the attack, Robby has had three bones in his face broken, including the
> ‘orbit’ bone, leaving a large hole between his eye socket and his sinus
> cavity. Doctors have told Robby’s mother that her son will have
> permanent vision problems. Robby’s friend, who is also White, was also
> beaten during the attack by another Black boy.
We are all paying for this UN-ISOLATED- in fact, downright redundantly redundant constant stream of violence, we pay in so many ways, fear, quality of life, financially supporting the prison system, theft, welfare, section 8, foster care, crack babies in hospitals, pregant teens with no father in sight- but the worst is paying in our children’s BLOOD. That is the ultimate price that the Christian and Newsom family have paid, they have paid twice over, as their children have paid with their lives, and “We” (White people) pay in all these other ways, constantly. Are you tired of it, White Man? is it “hate” to not want this in your life, let alone have there be excuses made for it again and again and YOU’RE the Bad Guy for not liking it? What kind of alternate nutso universe is this, anyway? Sorry , but this kind of shyt was not in the Rainbow Hug Truth and Forgiveness Picnic! and Yeah, I’m a “hater” too for pointing out the TRUTH. One day people are going to not care about being called names over valuing their safety and that of their children.
The next obligatory predictable drivel goes like this: “oh she’s just ‘using’ this horrible “isolated incident’ to spew her ‘racist rhetoric’ blah blah, the apologetics for murder will say. Ya know, you’re WRONG. If this case were an EXCEPTION to certain groups behavior you would have a point, but it ISN’T and you DON’T.
Now what? You can only call names. “haterhaterracistnazibigotkkkblahblahblah”… because you KNOW what I am saying is true and there is no argument. Those kids are decaying in their graves,their last moments on earth filled with pain and fear- their parents lives are no doubt full of pain and grief, as well as other family and friends. It’s REAL, MAN. GET IT? It’s not about some made-up pansy-ass PC name-calling crap! One day, enough of us will take the chance to say what we REALLY feel, to value our kids normal, non-violent civilization and admit that YES, RACE always HAS and STILL HAS SOMETHING TO DO WITH IT. It has EVERYTHING TO DO WITH IT. It may suck to realize that and ruin all your egalitarian dreams, but it’s f*cking true.
As I try and sleep , I will be thinkiing about what was happening to those kids, a year ago today, probably as I type this at 130 AM , Jan 6 , 2008- , as they were taken late at night , and Channon was kept alive for a couple days. I cannot even imagine the suffering they went through, and as I went through my own personal BS this Christmas, I thought of Channon and Chris’ parents and how I don’t have room to cry over my own losses, when theirs are so great. I say “my” and “their”, but in the bigger picture, the loss of Channon and Chris is “Our” loss too, in a larger sense, our “family” too- We are nowhere near Tenn, but we are tax-paying, law abiding, caring for our kids and our neighbor type people, and yes, we are White People. We are not strung out carjackers, rapists, and murderers. We don’t think, “Hmm, 101 uses for a white girl”.. (and for blacks willing to also stand up against this crap, good for them, they shouldn’t side with murderers- OJ was a one shot deal- )
Get civilized or get the F*&k out.
